For the first time in its 21 seasons, the show will take place in Central America which has a hard terrain and savage wildlife.
With "Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains" wrapping up on Sunday, May 16, CBS is ready to introduce the next chapter in the "Survivor" franchise. The 21st season, as host Jeff Probst announced during the reunion episode on Sunday, will take place in the largest country in Central America, Nicaragua.
"It is a land of impenetrable terrain, smoking volcanoes and savage wildlife," the narrator says. It is also the land which Chrisopher Colombus discovered and was almost captured by Spain. Unlike "Heroes vs. Villains" and other all-star editions, "Survivor: Nicaragua" would star "a brand-new set of survivors." No date yet for the premiere.
In January, CBS ordered two more seasons, the 21st and 22nd, making "Survivor" television's longest-running reality competition series. Rumor has it, the 22nd installment will also take place in Nicaragua and be built around the theme "second chances", meaning it may feature previous seasons' players who didn't get far in their respective seasons.
