CBS has renewed a long-running reality program for two more seasons. CBS News reports that the renewal means cycles 29 and 30 of "Survivor" are in the pipeline.
Both installments of the show will air during the 2014-15 television season, the story reports.

Said Probst: "'Survivor' has been blessed with incredibly loyal fans. We make this show for them and I am thrilled that we get to do it again."
Executive producer Mark Burnett commented: "I am thrilled that our fans get to continue their love affair with 'Survivor' on CBS through 2015. This current season has become one of the most-loved seasons ever and I promise our fans to make season 29 and 30 even better."
The current "Survivor: Blood vs. Water" wraps Sunday with a two-hour finale, to be followed by a reunion show.
