CBS Orders Two More Seasons of Survivor

It’s a good day for Survivor fans.

CBS has officially renewed television’s longest-running reality competition series for two additional seasons. The 23rd and 24th installments of Survivor will air during the 2011-12 TV season.

Additionally, Survivor staple Jeff Probst has signed a new agreement which keeps him sealed in as CBS’ host with the most and executive producer of the rural series over the next two editions.

Survivor is a program franchise that continues to stand the test of time,” CBS executive Jennifer Bresnan said in a statement Wednesday. “Each season delivers new faces, exotic places, the ultimate social experiment combined with game play, and one of the most engaged audiences anywhere on primetime television.”

Survivor: Redemption Island is currently in the midst of a game-changing season Wednesdays at 8/7c.

  • So excited! Survivor is still a high quality show in its 22nd season. Glad to know I will have much more to blog about in the year to come! I’m hoping they finally head to Antarctica next season. That’ll never happen though. CBS loves their girls in bikinis!

  • yay!! I love that show.

    Though I’m still hoping Probst will be able to do both Survivor and take over for Regis on Live!

  • If CBS wants to make Survivor as interesting as it was in season 1-5, they need to DROP the recruits, and go all applicant like the old days. There are plenty of interesting American people out there who want positions on Survivor to win a million. Stop recruiting people to fill “roles” on the show, if that’s what is going on. It makes the show completely dull. Oh, and stop bringing losers back for the 4th time. They also need to find a much more original setting to play the game. Island in the Pacific/South American beach is getting tiresome.

    • I would love to see casting that would get more average people on board – but I understand why they seek characters.

      Also, they learned pretty quickly that the beach setting was always going to be the most effective. Every time they get landlocked, the show seems to suffer.

      Of course offering a body of water offers a greater opportunity to feed yourself than not.

  • Guess this means Jeff isn’t replacing Regis.

  • The Andes Mountains/Peru would make for a dramatic setting. So would India.

  • a change would be good and hears an idea instead of 2 groups competing why not 4 that dont know whats going on till the merge. meaning camp 1 only knows about camp 2 and camp 3 against 4 they only meat each other till the merge then merge 1 with 3 and 2 with 4 for final run to the finish
