In surprising news, the first Survivor 45 cast member has been revealed.

CBS ordered a new season of the reality competition show, and it will likely air in the fall of 2023.

Jeff Probst is back as the host, and it is/will be filmed in Fiji.

There are unconfirmed rumors that the filming has already begun, but if not, that will happen soon.

As for the early news about the Survivor 45 cast, the fan site Inside Survivor provided a big announcement.

For fans who have been watching Season 44, the name of this castaway will be very familiar.

Who is on the Survivor 45 cast?

Bruce Perreault is back.

After getting medically evacuated from Fiji during the filming of Survivor 44, Bruce is getting another shot.

According to Inside Survivor, they have several sources confirming that Bruce is back for Survivor 45.

When the premiere for Season 44 aired, Jeff announced that the production team was inviting Bruce to return to the show.

This appears to be the confirmation that Bruce is playing again. But it also raises some questions.

Since the Survivor 45 cast has seen the beginning of the Survivor 44 season, they know that Bruce is a returning player.

If it is a season with Bruce and many new people, the new castaways could target him.

Maybe there are other wrinkles to the season, though, like additionally medically evacuated people from past seasons getting a second chance.
