The new Survivor 2017 Season 35 will feature three tribes and all-new castaways, each with their own angle in their bid to become the next Sole Survivor, and now we know when to expect their arrival this fall on CBS.

The CBS Fall 2017 schedule has been announced and it brings a few changes for Survivor S35. First up we’re seeing that CBS has decoupled Survivor’s season premiere from the Big Brother 19 finale date, which is awesome, and they’ve also shortened the S35 debut.

Get ready for Survivor 2017 to return on September 27th at 8/7c for a one hour season premiere. It seems like for years now we’ve had Survivor deliver a 90-minute premiere in the Fall season the same night as the Big Brother finale, but that’s not how they’re doing it this year.

Survivor will be the lead in for CBS’s new SEAL Team series debut that same night which means we’ll probably get the BB19 finale the week before. The shorter Survivor premiere is interesting as Inside Survivor points out it’s been five years since we had a one-hour premiere.

The 90 minute shows on BB finale night are a mess for me as that’s too long for one TC and too short to fit in two rounds of voting. This past season’s double feature premiere worked great, but if we couldn’t get that for S35 then I’d rather us drop back to just one episode.

The downtime until Survivor Heroes Vs Healers Vs Hustlers will go by fast so be sure to join us on Facebook & Twitter and get our Email Updates so you don’t miss any of the preseason news along the way. Can’t wait for the fun to begin again!
