CBS announced today that Survivor has been renewed for its 35th season. On the air since 2000 with over 500 total episodes, the competition series is the longest-running reality show on broadcast network television. After 17 years on the air, the show still garners considerable ratings that consistently top its time slot competition.
The current season of Survivor, titled 'Game Changers', premiered earlier this month and features returning castaways that were known for making big moves during their previous times on the show.
Look for Season 35 during the 2017-2018 season.
