"Survivor: Ghost Island"
Season Premiere Wednesday, February 28 at 8PM ET/PT on CBS

          The Emmy Award-winning series returns this fall for its 36th season, themed “Ghost Island.” This edition features 20 new castaways divided into two groups of 10 and centers around the bad decisions of past players. In a new twist, players may be sent to a separate haunted island filled with SURVIVOR relics from the previous 35 seasons of the show. The question is: will these new players be able to learn from the past mistakes of others and “reverse the curse,” or will the past come back to haunt them?

          Showcasing the series’ extensive history, Ghost Island is filled with real idols and advantages from previous seasons, including from Brazil, China, Africa and Australia, serving as a haunted graveyard for unfortunate choices made by former players. These castaways will be forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast each other in an attempt to become the Sole Survivor. The show returns to the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji and is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst.

The two castaway groups are:
