Survivor is returning to CBS for Season 37: Survivor: David vs. Goliath. The castaways include some familiar cast members, with the show taking place on Fiji’s Mamanuca Islands.
The 20 new contestants will be divided into two tribes based on biblical figures. The ‘David’ tribe are ten contestants who are underdogs that had to overcome social-economic disadvantages, and ‘Goliath’ are physically fit and/or privileged with social and economic advantages in their backgrounds.
When does Survivor Season 37 start?
Survivor premieres September 26, 2018, on CBS in a 90-minute episode. The upcoming season will air every Wednesday at 8/7c on CBS.
Who are the Survivor 37 cast?
John Hennigan, who is a former WWE wrestler under the name John Morrison, and is also known as Johnny Impact, will be in the Goliath tribe. Amazing Race contestant Mike White, S.W.A.T. officer Daniel Rengering and Jessica Peet are other noteworthy castaways.
