As per the show's synopsis -- "After 20 years, SURVIVOR launches a new chapter when the Emmy Award-winning series returns on Wednesdays. Stranded in the beautiful islands of Fiji, these 18 determined new castaways will be divided into three tribes of six and will face one of the most dangerous seasons in the history of the show. The series evolves even further when this season introduces fresh elements to the competition that intensifies the battle and tests even the strongest super fan. The mental and physical challenges force players to choose between personal risk and reward, while still navigating the complex social game and attempting to forge alliances to last another day. The individuals competing are from diverse backgrounds with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor. The show is hosted and executive produced by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst."

As the executive producer and showrunner, Probst opened up to NY Times about the change. "It's one of the most exciting things that's happened to 'Survivor' in my 21 years," he explained.

He also spoke about the show's future, and as long as players are willing to dive in, there's always hope. "Even though their game is on the line, a great 'Survivor' player wants the ball with no time left on the clock," he said. "They want that dangerous advantage. They're certain they can pull it off. Because they too were the 8-year-old who dreamed of making fire one day." he added.
