When does Survivor 47 start?

Survivor 47 was announced as part of CBS' fall line-up on May 2, 2024. We don't currently have a premiere date yet. But the fall seasons have always debuted during the last two weeks of September. So Survivor fans may want to circle Wednesday, Sept. 25 as a prospective start date, or maybe as late as Oct. 2.

How long will episodes of Survivor 47 be?

In the announcement of CBS' fall line-up, the network also revealed that 90-minute episodes of Survivor are here to stay! Season 47 will continue the lengthened runtime that debuted in seasons 45 and 46. While first instituted to fill time due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, the longer episodes have been one of the most positively received changes of the past few years, encouraging the network to keep the longer episodes.

What is the Survivor diversity news?

In June 2019, inspired by the events surrounding the Black Lives Matter movement and discussions around anti-racist practices, a group of Black Survivor alumni spoke up about their experiences and difficulties they faced as minorities on the show. Known as the "Soul Survivors Organization" and consisting of contestants from seasons 1 to 40, they released a widely-circulated petition that calls upon the show to institute several anti-racist initiatives, including casting BIPOC for at least 30% of each cast, hiring more BIPOC as part of the crew, and actively supporting the cast, including mental health resources following the season.

"The entire culture is in a beautiful upheaval," Probst says about the petition, "and our job is to respond to it to make sure that Survivor continues to reflect our culture and our behavior and how we're interacting with each other. Everything that's happening is going to inform the future of Survivor."

As a result of the initiative, CBS announced in November 2020 that it would be instituting new rules for its unscripted shows in the pursuit of increased diversity. That includes a requirement for at least 50% of every show's cast to be contestants who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), as well as allocating a minimum of 25% of its annual unscripted development budget to projects created or co-created by BIPOC producers.
