Survivor Season 38: Premiere Date, Cast, Trailer, Spoilers & News

We did get some idea about the season 37 of the ‘Survivor’ series when hosts Jeff Probst provided a sneak peek into the upcoming project in the previous season ‘Survivor: Ghost Island’. With every season bringing in new concepts, season 37 too provided a different approach. The 37th instalment of the franchise has been titled ‘Survivor: David and Goliath’. This name stems from the concept for the season. With season 36 shocking the viewers as the finale resulted in a tie which led the 2nd runner-up to cast the winning vote (A rule introduced by Jeff in the 35th season), season 37 aimed to heighten the drama with its unique choice of contestants. Now, another season is on its way and has been named Survivor: Edge of Extinction.

Survivor Season 38 Cast: Who is in it?

Season 38, ‘Survivor: Edge of Extinction’ will have a team of new ‘Castaways’. Jeff Probst will remain as the host. Though there haven’t been many confirmations from the ‘Survivor’ team, here are 14 of the 18 speculated contestants whom you may see in this 38th instalment of the series – Aubry Bracco, David Wright, Joe Anglim, Kelley Wentworth, Aurora McCreary, Chris Underwood, Gavin Whitson, Gwendolyn “Wendy” Diaz, Julia Carter, Julie Rosenberg, Keith Sowell, Lauren O’Connell, Rick Devens, and Ron Clark.

Survivor Season 38 Plot: What is it about?

Like many of its seasons, this instalment will see a new theme as suggested by the name. The season has been named as Survivor: Edge of Extinction. As it is now obvious the ‘Castaways’ will be divided into two teams- one where the team members have suffered adversities in life to achieve success and the other where the contestants have been privileged their whole life. This season will bring in brand new contestants from different walks of life. This is sure to ensure interesting viewing.

As each tribal council comes to an end, eliminated castaway will be given a choice to either exit the game or head to an Extinction Island sans shelter and priveledges as well as limited food supplies. All they will do is wait for a chance to get back on the show and can quit whenever they want. Season 38 just wrapped up filming in Fiji and it has been reported that there will be four returning players whose names were unveiled back in June.

Survivor Season 38 Release Date: When will it premiere?

‘Survivor’ is one of those reality shows which have enjoyed success over the course of their multiple seasons. So, there was no surprise when the series was set to be renewed for the 37th and 38th season. The air date for Season 37 was set as September 26, 2018. We have news that Survivor’s 38th season will premiere on February 20, 2019.

  • Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no
    coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!
