CBS has announced its fall premiere dates, and that includes just one reality show: Survivor.
Season 39 of Survivor—yes, we’re just two seasons away from the show’s 20th anniversary—will premiere at the end of September, as usual, and air on Wednesdays at 8, also as usual.
Because it will be paired with the finale of Big Brother 21, both the Survivor premiere and BB21 finale will be 90-minute episodes. It’s a nice way to fill three hours of prime-time, though it’s the one time a year this happens.
Both of those episodes will air on Sept. 25, which is the middle of CBS’ fall premiere week.
Survivor: Island of the Idols, which features the return of “Boston” Rob Mariano and Sandra Diaz-Twine, will air from 8 to 9:30 p.m. ET.
Big Brother 21 will conclude between 9:30 and 11 p.m. ET. It will have a live finale, as usual.
Of course, Big Brother hasn’t even premiered itself yet: it begins its three-month run later this month, and will be followed in July by the premiere of CBS’ other highly anticipated reality show: Love Island.
The cast of Big Brother will be announced Monday, but there’s been no other information yet from CBS about its theme, twist, or anything else.
