Survivor: Ghost Island, the 36th season of award-winning adventure reality series Survivor, will premiere on Thursday March 1. The new season will be fast-tracked from America on 9Go! with episodes available to watch just hours after the USA: from 3pm the same day on 9Now.
Unlike anything you’ve ever seen on Survivor, the worst nightmares of past contestants will haunt the dreams of the new castaways when, in a new twist, players may be sent to Ghost Island – a haunted island filled with Survivor relics from the previous 35 seasons.
Returning to the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji, Survivor: Ghost Island features 20 new castaways divided into two groups of 10, and centres on the bad decisions of past players that ultimately led to them being voted off their island by the tribal council.
The question is: will these new players be able to learn from the mistakes of others and “reverse the curse”? Or will the past come back to haunt them?
“Survivor continues to be a complicated game of social politics and everything rests on one’s ability to make the right decision at the right time,” said executive producer and host Jeff Probst. “This season, Ghost Island serves as a constant reminder that one bad decision can haunt a player forever.”
This season’s castaways include a social media strategist, an army veteran, an emergency medical technician (EMT), and a marine animal trainer, all 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.
