In the past year, there has been a “new era” of Survivor. The formula that has kept the show going for over 20 years has been changed in some ways.
Two seasons have passed, and now, in season 43, a new group of castaways has started the 26-day adventure of a lifetime, hoping to be the next winner.
Read on to find out everything we know about Survivor season 43, including when the new season starts, who is in the cast, and much more.
When Does Survivor Season 43 start?

What is the Survivor Diversity News?
In June 2019, a group of Black Survivor alumni talked about their experiences and the problems they faced as minorities on the show. They were inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement and discussions about anti-racist practices.
The “Soul Survivors Organization,” which is made up of contestants from seasons 1 to 40, put out a petition that has been widely shared. It asks the show to do several anti-racist things, such as casting at least 30% BIPOC in each cast, hiring more BIPOC as crew members, and actively supporting the cast after the season by giving them access to mental health resources.
Probst says about the petition, “The whole culture is in a beautiful upheaval, and it’s our job to respond to it to make sure that Survivor keeps reflecting our culture, our behavior, and how we interact with each other.” Everything that happens will change how Survivor goes forward.”
As a result of the initiative, CBS said in November 2020 that its unscripted shows would have to follow new rules to make them more diverse. That means that at least half of every show’s contestants must be Black, Indigenous, or People of Color (BIPOC). It also means that at least 25% of its annual unscripted development budget must go to projects made by or with BIPOC producers.
Who won Survivor Season 42?
Maryanne Oketch is one of the most interesting people in the history of Survivor. She is talkative and bubbly, which often made her fellow players and Jeff Probst laugh. She was able to create the impression that she was not a threat until it was time to strike.
By getting people to vote against Omar, she made a key move that made sure she would be in the Final 3. And when she got there, her explanation of how she used her good name and advantages to her advantage gave her a near-unanimous win.
