On Thursday, CBS announced the premiere date of the long-awaited Survivor 43 premiere: the new season will begin on Wednesday, September 21. It will be a two-hour double elimination special, and will air at 8 p.m. Eastern on CBS.
The announcement came as well as a message host Jeff Probst posted from his personal Twitter account, who gave a little tease on what would happen:
Once again, were planning to take 18 new players strangers and abandon them. They must form a society. This season, we will look at how that society that they form directly impacts the game theyre playing, because we must figure out what they represent, what they think.
How Season 43 will differ from seasons 42 and 41 in terms of how contestants build a society. Probst has been vocal about the fact that the widely discussed New Era of Survivor is here to stay. I think that we knew well in advance that our 40th season would be the end of an era in terms of how we play the game and produce the show, according to the Wraprecently. I think CBS was likely concerned about why we would dramatically change something that was still receiving a good rating and supporters were still enjoying,
Probst discussed how the great payers adapt in season 43. You have to adapt to your surroundings and then figure out how to play. The person who does that will win Survivor 43.
Survivor 43 Has Already Completed Filming

Given that Survivor 43 had begun filming by the beginning of May, and that the new seasons will likely stick with the 26-day shooting schedule, it is safe to say that the production of Survivor 43 has already begun in Fiji, and that shooting for Survivor 44 is already underway.
Survivor 43 will be with 18 new cast members, who will be split into three tribes. Despite our limited knowledge, Probst and production are continuing to experiment newfound ideas and advantages, despite the resentment many of the shows.
Many of the actors in the cast of 43 and 44 have already seen them in action, thus they will likely not be returning. These changes and advances will likely be significant.
As part of the new IMAX Live program with CBS, Survivor 43 will be premiered in theaters.
On CBS, check out the two-hour premiere of Survivor 43 on September 21, 2022, at 8 p.m. Eastern.
