Channel Nine has backtracked on plans to screen Survivor over summer and will instead air the reality series this month.
It returns 10:30pm Tuesday September 30th.
The 16th season set in Palau is the second time the series has returned to Micronesia. Pitted as a “fans v favourites” series, it sees the return of many popular players including Ozzi, Parvati, James, Ami, Yau-Man, Cirie, Eliza and yes, Jonny Fairplay. They take on long-standing fans of the show who have always wanted to try their hand. They have no idea they are competing against their on-screen idols.
Exile Island also makes a return.
But Nine’s scheduling of the series is belated given it aired in the US from February to May (beware internet spoilers!).
The seventeenth season Survivor: Gabon kicks off in the US on September 25th.
