Nine will catch up to US Survivor


Season 33 of US Survivor begins on Nine this week with a late start time following The Footy Show.

But there’s better news in store with Nine airing two episodes next week (9:40pm October 6th), which will catch up to the US.

Filmed in Fiji, the upcoming season will feature 20 castaways separated by generation and forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast each other and win the $1 million prize.

The battle unfolds between two very different generations when the two tribes compete for the title of Sole Survivor.

The 20 castaways include an assistant district attorney, a youth pastor, a police sergeant, a television writer, a professional gamer, and the youngest player to ever compete in the game, a high school student.

Each group of 10 castaways possesses similar characteristics that represent their generation and help to unify their tribe.

Millennials grew up in a time of rapid change and are often described as having priorities that are vastly different from previous generations. How will this group fare without technology on the island? Will they opt for shortcuts in challenges or go the distance?

Generation X forms the bridge between the Baby Boomers and the Millennials and has been collectively labelled as hard-working and independent people. Will they find anything in common with the younger castaways or stick to their own group? Will their differences and preconceived beliefs be too much to overcome?

Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X is again presented by Emmy Award-winning host Jeff Probst and produced by SEG, Inc. Mark Burnett and Jeff Probst are executive producers. Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X is distributed internationally by CBS Studios International.

Which generation has what it takes to win the game? And which player will be crowned the Sole Survivor and winner of the $1 million prize?

Thursday September 30 at 10pm in Sydney / Brisbane, 10:30pm Melbourne, Adelaide & Perth.


  1. In Bris the first episode was scheduled to start at 22:00, DVR recorded, but the footy shit went 45 minutes late.
    First episode 1 week late and 1/2 missed. Terrible start 9.!!
    No repeats show up in the epg (not that it can be trusted)
    F*** You Channel 9, should have left it on ‘GO!’

  2. Happy Dance 🙂 – have already accidentally caught a glimpse on social media of the torch-snuffee from Episode 1 when it doesn’t screen here until this Thursday night. So much more exciting when we’re watching it at the same time as U.S. or very close to it. Thanks for the update.
