CBS’s “Survivor” is said to be returning to BBC very soon!
Survivor could soon be back on UK screens with the BBC reportedly in talks to revive the format.
A source told The Sun that a deal was “almost done”
“They have been working on a big contract with a production company to reboot the series,” the insider said. “It made for great telly back in the early Noughties and they think it would do incredibly well now too.”
Survivor originally aired for just two series on ITV In 2001 and 2002, failing to enjoy the long-term success the show has seen in the US where it has aired more than 40 seasons since 2000.
Could the show see success this time around?
Stranded in the beautiful islands of Fiji, these 18 determined new castaways will be divided into three tribes of six and will face one of the most dangerous seasons in the history of the show. The series evolves even further when this season introduces fresh elements to the competition that intensifies the battle and tests even the strongest super fan. The mental and physical challenges force players to choose between personal risk and reward, while still navigating the complex social game and attempting to forge alliances to last another day. The individuals competing are from diverse backgrounds with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor. The show is hosted and executive produced by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst.
