When does “Survivor” Season 35 start? Fans will be able to watch the latest installment of CBS’s long-running reality TV show, dubbed “Survivor: Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers,” when it premieres September 27 on CBS at 8:00 p.m. Watch the preview trailer here.
Four-time Emmy-winning host Jeff Probst returns to emcee the brand new season, which pits three tribes — Heroes, Healers and Hustlers — against each other based on their dominant threats. Heroes (courage) include marines and lifeguards, Healers (helping others) include surgeons and physical therapists, while Hustlers (tenacity) include personal assistants and bellhops.
So far only six of the new castaways have been revealed by CBS. Ashley Nolan and Ben Driebergen are on the Levu (Heroes) tribe, Desi Williams and Mike Zahalsky are on the Soko (Healers) tribe, and Ali Elliott and Ryan Ulrich are on the Yawa (Hustlers) tribe. The other 12 cast members for Season 35 should be announced soon.
“Survivor: Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers” filmed on the islands of Fiji, making it the fourth season to take place in that stunning location following “Survivor: Fiji” (Season 14), “Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X” (Season 33) and “Survivor: Game Changers” (Season 34).
Longtime casting director Lynne Spiegel Spillman received her first Emmy nomination this year in the brand new category of Best Reality Casting. The show is also nominated for Best Reality Cinematography and Best Reality Picture Editing at the 2017 Emmys. Throughout its 16-year run “Survivor” has won seven Emmy Awards, including four consecutive for Probst as Best Reality Host between 2008 and 2011.
