Survivor 9/21 (2 Hour Season Premiere) on CBS





“SURVIVOR” ANNOUNCES THE 18 NEW CASTAWAYS COMPETING ON THE 43RD EDITION WITH A TWO-HOUR SEASON PREMIERE ON WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 21

“Survivor” Kicks Off All-Reality Wednesday Nights Beginning at 8PM, ET/PT

After 22 Years on Television, 620 Episodes, 646 Contestants and 639 Torch Snuffs,

Season 43 Returns to Launch a New Chapter with Thrilling Elements That Intensify the Battle for the Title of Sole Survivor

SURVIVOR announced today the 18 new castaways who will compete against each other when the Emmy Award-winning series kicks off an all-reality Wednesday night and returns for its 43rd season with a two-hour premiere, Wednesday, Sept. 21 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The series is also available to stream live and on demand on the CBS app and Paramount+*. The show is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst.

After 22 years on television, 646 castaways and 639 torch snuffs, the premiere of season 43 will be the CBS Original series’ 621st episode, launching a new chapter of the groundbreaking reality competition. SURVIVOR continues to evolve when these 18 new players are stranded on the beautiful islands of Fiji and must form a society and adapt to their physical and social surroundings, forcing players to choose between personal risk and reward, while navigating the complex social game and attempting to forge alliances to last another day.

These determined castaways require strong social skills, strategic acumen and physical endurance. They will be divided into three tribes of six and face a faster, more extreme season from the moment they step on the beach. The moral dilemmas and unpredictable situations will test even the strongest competitor, as food is scarce, rewards and supplies are minimal, and the mental and physical challenges require players to make impossible decisions and adjust their strategies every day.

The individuals competing on season 43 are from diverse backgrounds and bring a fresh perspective to this new era of the game, with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast. And in the end, only one will remain to claim the title of Sole Survivor and win the $1 million prize.

Upcoming DVD Releases





NOW AVAILABLE:
* Wiseguy – The Collector’s Edition (VEI)
$39.99 SRP DVD

—–Long before Donnie Brasco brought similar drama to the big screen, Golden Globe winner Ken Wahl brought charisma, credibility, and chutzpah to his small-screen role as Vincent Terranova, a handsome 30-year-old agent with the FBI’s Organized Crime Bureau. How does a deep-cover operative keep his sanity and morality intact when the criminal lifestyle he’s sworn to bring down from within is more compelling than his own? Federal Agent Vincent Terranova (Ken Wahl) is plagued by this question in this innovative take on 80s cop dramas. Created by veteran hit producer Stephen J. Cannell, Wiseguy veers from traditional ‘bad guy of the week’ police procedural by breaking the drama into multi-episode story arcs that followed an Organized Crimes Bureau case – and its charismatic criminal suspects – to its logical conclusion. No matter the cost to criminal, victim, or cop. GUEST STARRING: Jonathan Banks, Kevin Spacey, Ray Sharkey, Joan Severance, Fred Thompson, Jerry Lewis, Stanley Tucci, David Strathairn, Billy Dee Williams, and Steven Bauer. All 75 episodes from all 4 seasons.
NOTE: previous DVD releases of Wiseguy had much of the music altered or removed, as compared to the original TV broadcasts: the new studio hasn’t said outright one way or the other, but there is NO indication in VEI’s announcement that the music is back in the re-release of these same episodes; we would tell you to expect the music to still be altered/missing on these DVDs…HOWEVER, one indication that we might be incorrect about that is the fact that VEI is touting “all 75 episodes,” which would include the 8-episode arc from Season 2 called “Dead Dog Records,” which has not previously been released on DVD in North America (neither with Ventura’s releases in 2003-05, nor with Mill Creek’s 67-episode “Collector’s Edition” release in 2010) due to music rights. On the other hand, even if these 8 episodes are included, it does NOT necessarily mean that all of the original music would be included (such as the iconic score from the Sonny Steelgrave arc with “Knights In White Satin”). Be careful if you purchase, is all we are suggesting!
