Survivor 2019: Meet The Season 38 Cast

CBS today officially announced the cast of Survivor 2019: Edge of Extinction. This season 18 castaways will compete as two different tribes for the chance to become Sole Survivor.

Joining 14 brand new castaways are four returning players, Joe Anglim (“Worlds Apart,” “Second Chance”), Aubry Bracco (“Kaoh Rong,” “Game Changers”), Kelley Wentworth (“Second Chance,” “San Juan del Sur”) and David Wright (“Millennials vs. Gen-X”). But that’s not the only twist. This time, there will be an island called Edge of Extinction. It’s a lot like Redemption Island, where the booted castoffs will get the shot at re-entering the game at some point.

As I already mention, there are two equal tribes starting out, Manu and Kama. So let’s take a closer look at those tribes now!
