[via press release from CBS]

CBS ANNOUNCES THE 18 CASTAWAYS COMPETING ON THE NEXT EDITION OF "SURVIVOR," PREMIERING WEDNESDAY, FEB. 20

The 38th Edition Is Themed "Edge of Extinction"

CBS announced today the 18 castaways who will compete against each other on SURVIVOR when the Emmy Award-winning series returns for its 38th season, Wednesday, Feb. 20 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

This edition, themed "Edge of Extinction," features 18 castaways divided into two equal tribes, the Manu Tribe and the Kama Tribe. Four returning players will join the 14 castaways who will be competing for the first time. The returning castaways are 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"). This season presents a new layer to the game with the introduction of the island known as "Edge of Extinction," which severely tests the will of the castaways to be the Sole Survivor and what they are willing to endure to make that happen. Those who can withstand the emotionally and physically difficult challenge will be afforded a shot for one of them to get back in the game and continue their quest for $1 million.

"SURVIVOR continues to reinvent itself with new energy, and this season we've added a new secret game-changing twist" said executive producer and host Jeff Probst. "After being voted out, players will be faced with a decision to either go home or go to the 'Edge of Extinction,' where they will be pushed further than ever before for a chance to get back in the game."

These new and returning castaways will be forced to compete against each other with the same ultimate goal: to outwit, outplay and outlast each other, and in the end only one will remain to claim the title of Sole Survivor. The show films in the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji, and is hosted by Emmy Award winner Jeff Probst.
