Survivor 41 news reveals that the show’s 41st season will begin production this summer. Filming should have started months ago, COVID-19 shut down television production around the world. But CBS recently got the ok to start filming once more. Also, Fiji, where the show is filmed, has some very good statistics as far as coronavirus is concerned. In other news, fans are anxious to know if Jeff Probst’s talk of an “all-teen” season is just that or something that’s going to happen.
CBS Begins Filming & Survivor 41 Production Starts This Summer
Last week, Soap Dirt reported that Survivor got the ok to begin production on their longest-running reality show. Filming had been scheduled to start on March 24. Yet, COVID-19 had other plans.
It looks like CBS started production back up on their other shows. There were two actors on set the other day for one of the program’s soap operas. So, that means things look good for season 41 to begin filming sometime very soon.
Actually, it looks like Survivor production will be starting in July if everything goes off without a hitch. They typically film in the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji which is good news. That’s because Fiji has recently declared itself COVID-19 free with no recent cases as of June 5. They only had a total of 18 confirmed cases of coronavirus and all of them recovered.
Jeff Probst Teases Season Filled With Teens
At the end of the Survivor: Winners at War finale, host and showrunner Jeff Probst spilled on the season 41. Since they haven’t begun filming, Jeff couldn’t share that much, not even any promo videos. But he said, “We’re always trying to explore and evolve the show and take chances and we’re gonna do that”. Jeff also said, “We’re committed to being on in the fall with our 41st season, which means you should apply, especially if you’re young. I’m talking teenagers”.
He invited 16, 17, 18, and 19-year-olds to apply if they have “cool parents” and a “cool school”. Jeff promised that “it could happen”. Anything is possible when it comes to Survivor and Jeff Probst’s teasing of an all-teenager season had the entire fandom talking.
Survivor: When Will Season 41 Air on TV?
If everything goes according to plan, season 41 will be airing on our televisions this fall. Its exact airdate is September 23, 2020. As stated above, Jeff Probst and the entire crew are “committed” to the show airing this fall. So, we’re keeping our fingers crossed everything goes off without a hitch.
