Is Survivor Season 43 coming anytime soon? Read on to find out.
Survivor is an American version of the famous Survivor reality competition television franchise, that is itself derived from the Swedish television series Expedition Robinson created by Charlie Parsons. The series focuses on a group of strangers in a deserted location, where they have to arrange everything for survival like food, fire, and shelter. They compete in a variety of challenges including a test of their physical ability like running and swimming or it can be their mental abilities like puzzles and endurance challenges.
The winner will get a reward and the losing contestant will face elimination. Only one person can remain at the end of the game and is given the title of “Sole Survivor” and also awarded the grand prize of US$1,000,000.
The series is very successful and its first eleven seasons are rated among the top ten most-watched shows. The 40th season of the show premiered on February 12, 2020, and Season 41 premiered on September 22, 2021, followed by Season 42 on March 9, 2022. The series has gathered a huge fan base, who are waiting for the next season of the series to arrive.

It's time for "Today In Pop Culture History". It was 22 years ago tonight on May 31, 2000 when CBS premiered a brand new reality show called "Survivor". It marked the beginning of a brand new era on TV overall. And it also helped launched the booming reality TV craze. : D

Survivor Season 43 Expected Release Date
There’s still no release date announced by CBS for Survivor Season 43. However, if we look at the previous schedules and the announcement of the show releasing in the fall, we can expect the series to arrive sometime in mid to late September.
Survivor Season 43 Expected Plot
CBS has released the first preview for Survivor Season 43. As shown in the trailer, there will be new players in the new season, and also, we got multiple confessionals from the castaways. One of them informs, “I went from being in a gang to be in a Ph.D. program at Duke. I just wanna show, like, you can do anything you want.”
Another participant, who has a prosthetic leg, says, “I am scared to death. It’s definitely going to be the hardest challenge of my entire life.” One woman says, “Growing up in a tough environment, there’s some codes they grow up by. But I’m an ethical person. There are things I wouldn’t cross the line on, right? Like, I don’t think I’d … you know what? No, there’s really nothing I wouldn’t do.”
In the preview, there are brief clips of some challenges and the logo at the end of the video reveals an octopus that might have some relevance. The preview doesn’t reveal much about the game but it gives an idea that the upcoming season is going to be a wild ride for the contestants.
