'Survivor' Renewed for Two More Seasons, Premiere Date for 24th Cycle Announced


CBS has ordered season 25 and 26 of the reality show with Jeff Probst returning as host and executive producer, while the upcoming 24th installment will debut on February 15, 2012.

CBS will air at least three more seasons of "Survivor". The network has announced that it orders season 25 and 26 of the TV's longest-running reality competition, which will be filmed back-to-back this spring, to follow-up the upcoming 24th cycle.

The Eye has additionally set a premiere date for the new 24th installment, scheduling it to debut on February 15, 2012. Jeff Probst will return as host and executive producer for all three seasons.

"I am thrilled to continue working on the longest-running reality competition show with the world's greatest adventure crew for two more seasons," says Probst, who will also launch his new one-hour daily talk show in September.

"We are so thankful for the supportive fans who remain with us every season, and we promise to deliver another year of quality television," he adds, while Executive VP of alternative programming, Jennifer Bresnan, states, "Its ['Survivor'] format guarantees fresh characters, exotic places and fascinating social dynamics every season."

The currently airing 23rd cycle, called "Survivor: South Pacific", is averaging 12.3 million viewers and ranks as the No. 2 reality show among the coveted 18-49 demo. Filmed in the vicinity of Upolu, Samoa, it brings back Redemption Island which was first introduced in the previous season.
