MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Emmy Award-winning series Survivor is coming back to CBS.
Wednesday, CBS announced the 18 castaways who will compete against each other when the series returns for its 29th season.
This season, the "Blood vs. Water" theme returns as all-new castaways compete with – and ultimately against – their loved ones who share the same goal: to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor and winner of the $1 million dollar prize. Alliances and relationships will be tested and bonds will be broken when mothers, daughters, brothers, spouses and partners vie against each other in the ultimate competition, raising the question of which is thicker: Blood or Water?
This season also marks the return of Exile Island, where each week two loved ones square off against one another in a battle that will send the loser to isolation on Exile Island, while the winner receives reward for his/her Tribe. However, the winner will also have to choose a tribe mate to accompany their loved one to Exile Island.
The battle unfolds with a special 90-minute premiere, Wednesday, September 24 at 8:00 p.m. on CBS4.
