“Survivor” Season 45 Will Consist Of 90 Minute Episodes Due To Writers Strike

Survivor season 45

CBS’s “Survivor” is going even bigger for it’s 45th season and we’re hearing it’s because of the writers strike!

There was a rumor going around that “Survivor” will increase to 90 minute episodes and now the network just confirmed that “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race” will air longer episodes.

Survivor and The Amazing Race will air 90-minute episodes on Wednesday nights all season, instead of their customary hour-long installments. Survivorwill air from 8-9:30pmET while The Amazing Race will follow from 9:30-11pmET.

The move helps protect the CBS schedule in the event that the current writers’ strike continues into and through the summer. The last writers’ strike in 2007-2008 lasted 100 days, and there is belief among some that the current work stoppage could go even longer. Per ET.

The CBS Original groundbreaking reality television show continues to evolve when these 18 new players face one of the most intense versions of SURVIVOR ever. This season continues to define a bold new era of the series with the return of risky advantages, game-changing twists and a relentless pace that will push these castaways to their limits. Values will be tested and the players’ motivations highlighted when the fierce competition unfolds on the beautiful islands of Fiji. The unpredictable situations will test even the strongest competitor, as food is scarce, rewards and supplies are minimal, and the mental and physical challenges force players to make impossible decisions and adjust their strategies, while still navigating the complex social game. The individuals competing are from diverse backgrounds and bring a fresh perspective to this new era of the game, but the goal remains the same: to outwit, outplay and outlast, and in the end, only one will remain to claim the title of Sole Survivor and win the $1 million prize.
