The Survivor 44 cast is starting to get leaked, which shouldn’t be too surprising since the season recently finished filming in Fiji.

This new group of castaways should not be confused with the Survivor 43 cast list that was leaked, which shows who is playing on the season that will air on CBS in Fall 2022.

Season 43 was also filmed in Fiji, with the winner revealed on the island and then put under wraps until the season can begin airing episodes in the fall. CBS has also released an extended episode schedule for Survivor 43.

A look at the Survivor 44 cast list

Below are details on the 18 members of the Survivor 44 cast that are rumored to have just finished playing the game. We use the word rumored here because CBS has not yet confirmed this list.
