Well, I actually didn’t expect this one and am thrilled.
CBS has ordered two more cycles of Survivor (Seasons 25 and 26). Even though Jeff Probst will be busy with his new daytime talk show, he will continue as host.
Despite its age, Survivor remains a reliable performer for CBS. Its current 23rd edition has been averaging 12.2 million viewers and ranks as TV’s No. 2 non-scripted series in adults 18-49.
“I am thrilled to continue working on the longest-running reality competition show with the world’s greatest adventure crew for two more seasons,” said Probst in a statement. “We are so thankful for the supportive fans who remain with us every season, and we promise to deliver another year of quality television.”
Meanwhile, the 24th edition will premiere Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 8/7c.
