CBS Unveils New Cast, New Theme for ‘Survivor’

Aug 30, 2017  •  Post A Comment

The 18 castaways on the new edition of the CBS reality staple “Survivor,” which premieres Sept. 27, will be divided into three tribes, with the new season themed “Heroes v. Healers v. Hustlers,” the network announced today.

The categories for each castaway are “based on how they are perceived by others,” the network said in the announcement. “Heroes are used to being heralded for their achievements, healers receive gratitude for their work and hustlers must earn respect from others.”

The goal, as always, is to “outwit, outplay and outlast each other in an attempt to become the Sole Survivor,” CBS adds.

The network also notes: “This season’s castaways include an Olympian, an NFL player, a bellhop, a diversity advocate and a urologist.”

The new season marks the 35th installment of the series. Names, hometowns and basic details about each of the competitors, along with a 4-minute video clip introducing the new castaways, can be found by clicking here.
