With the end of Big Brother 19 tonight on CBS, that means it is time for CBS to unveil a new season of Survivor 2017. Jeff Probst gave us some details on the new season during last season’s finale, so when does Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers start? Find out the Survivor Season 35 premiere and cast details below.
In a strange twist, CBS is not debuting Survivor Season 35 tonight. In recent years, they usually do a 90-minute premiere of Survivor followed by the Big Brother finale. Tonight, it is just the two-hour finale of Big Brother 19.
That means the Survivor: Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers premiere will not take place until next Wednesday night, September 27. The new season will kick off at 8 p.m. EST and will bring us 18 new castaways, which will be divided into three tribes. These new castaways will be divided into tribes “based on how they are perceived by others.”
That means we have the Heroes Tribe (“Levu”), who are normally praised for their high achievements. Then there is the Healers Tribe (“Soko”), who are a group of people that go good work. Finally, we have the Hustlers Tribe (“Yawa”), who normally have to earn respect from others.
