Survivor renewed for 15th and 16th seasons

When Survivor Fiji debuts February 8, it will be the show’s 14th season, but it won’t be the last. CBS has just renewed the first major network hit reality show for two more seasons, both of which will apparently air next year.

The network said in a statement that it’s doing so because the show “remains one of television’s highest rated reality series,” and last season “won its Thursday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) time period in viewers and key demographics every week against its toughest competition in several years.”

The press release also says simply that “Jeff Probst is host.” While he’s sure to return for the 15th and 16th seasons, because it wouldn’t be Survivor without him, his contract expires at the end of the 14th season.
