Survivor’s Netflix seasons are leaving, but two more are coming

Just about one year after adding two seasons of Survivor to its library, Netflix will drop those two seasons, but Netflix is not removing Survivor entirely.

Instead, the streaming service will replace them with two other very strong seasons. So the answer to “How many seasons of Survivor are on Netflix?” will still be: two.

First, the terrific Survivor Heroes vs. Villains, season 20, is exiting, and so is Survivor: Cagayan, season 28, also known as “Brains vs. Brawn vs. Beauty,” which was also a really strong season.

Netflix is adding these two seasons:

  1. Survivor Micronesia: Fans vs. Favorites, which has one of the most spectacular blindsides in the show’s history
  2. Survivor: David vs. Goliath, which had a dumb theme but became an exceptional season

I find it interesting that Netflix is licensing just two seasons at a time, and not doing that in any kind of order, but also choosing well-liked and creatively strong seasons.

That may be in part due to other deals ViacomCBS has in place. Full seasons of Survivor also stream elsewhere:

Survivor Micronesia and Survivor David vs. Goliath will be on Netflix starting Nov. 15.

Also on that date, America’s Next Top Model seasons 21 and 22 will be on Netflix.

The day before, Nov. 14, Top Model seasons 19 and 20 will leave, and so will Survivor seasons 20 and 28. So if you haven’t seen those, you have just over three weeks to watch them.
