Survivor 46 reveals 18 new castaways competing for the $1 million prize kicking off Feb 28

Survivor reveals the 18 new castaways who will compete against each other when the iconic reality series premieres its 46th edition and kicks off with two historic two-hour episodes for the premiere on Wednesday, Feb. 28 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) and the second episode on Wednesday, March 6 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT).

The two part premiere will be followed by 90-minute episodes throughout the season on the CBS Television Network. The series is also available to stream on Paramount+ (live and on demand for Paramount+ with SHOWTIME subscribers, or on demand for Paramount+ Essential subscribers the day after the episode airs). The show is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst.

The competition will take place on the Fiji islands, as the participants will be divided into three tribes of six and endure a faster, more intense season from the moment they step foot on the beach. The individuals competing on the 46th season are fans from diverse backgrounds. In the end, only one will remain to claim the title of Sole Survivor and win the $1 million prize.
