The 38th season of CBS’s Survivor will kick off on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT. The new season’s “Edge of Extinction” theme pits 14 first-time castaways and four returning players – Joe Anglim, Aubry Bracco, Kelley Wentworth, and David Wright – against each other on the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji.

Survivor continues to reinvent itself with new energy, and this season we’ve added a new secret game-changing twist” stated executive producer and host Jeff Probst. “After being voted out, players will be faced with a decision to either go home or go to the ‘Edge of Extinction,’ where they will be pushed further than ever before for a chance to get back in the game.”

The 18 castaways hoping to outwit, outplay, and outlast the competition in season 38 are:
