Survivor to Host 20-Year Anniversary Special Ahead of 40th Season

Survivor is weeks away from kicking off its 40th season on Wednesday, February 12, but one week earlier the series will look back at 20 years of achievement with a one-hour special titled Survivor at 40: Greatest Moments and Players.

The series will look back at the last 20 years and will be hosted by Jeff Probst with interviews from previous winners Rob Mariano (“Redemption Island”), Amber Mariano (“All-Stars”), Jeremy Collins (“Second Chance”), Parvati Shallow (Fan vs. Favorites), and Ben Driebergen (“Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers”), according to a report from Deadline.

The special will also air live on CBS.

From the report:

It also will include life-changing moments with Christian Hubicki (“David vs. Goliath”), Donathan Hurley (“Ghost Island”), David Wright (“Millennials vs. Gen X”), and Cirie Fields (“Panama”), who all overcame personal obstacles when faced with tough situations on the island, as well as a sneak peek of the upcoming season Survivor: Winners At War.

Survivor is set to enter its 40th season and the long-running CBS reality show is mixing things up for the upcoming Survivor: Winners at War season. As the title of the season suggests, the cast will be made up of exclusively of winners from seasons past. The cast will feature 20 former contestants who will be vying for a whopping $2 million prize.

The cast features 10 men and 10 women and has a majority of winners from season 22 and on — excluding season 26 winner John Cochran and season 30 winner Mike Holloway.

A full look at the cast for Survivor: Winners at War can be seen below.
