Survivor 45 is on the way.

A new season of the hit show debuts this fall on CBS.

There had been some mystery about the exact start date, but CBS answered those questions today.

“Grab your torches and get ready to get back to the greatest game there ever was,” reads a new post on Twitter.

It already has fans buzzing.

And for fans who haven’t heard, the new episodes are 90 minutes each this fall.

Survivor alums have also been keeping busy, like Cirie Fields starring on Big Brother 25.

And there are several Survivor alums on The Challenge USA Season 2, which begins airing soon.

When is the Survivor 45 start date?

“#Survivor: 45 is coming your way Wednesday, September 27th on @CBS!” reads the rest of the tweet.

Survivor will take over the 8/7c timeslot in primetime, forcing Big Brother to get bumped to a new night.

CBS already advertised that the Wednesday episodes of Big Brother 25 will begin airing on Tuesday of that week.

As for Survivor, Season 46 has also finished filming, with the expectation it will air on CBS in Spring 2024.
