Survivor 29

'Survivor' returns for its 29th season with a special 90-minute premiere, Wednesday, Sept. 24 (8:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

This fall on 'Survivor', the "Blood vs. Water" theme returns as all-new castaways compete with - and ultimately against - their loved ones who share the same goal: to outwit, outplay, outlast and ultimately be crowned Sole Survivor and winner of the $1 million dollar prize. Alliances and relationships will be tested and bonds will be broken when mothers, daughters, brothers, spouses and partners vie against each other in the ultimate competition, raising the question of which is thicker: Blood or Water?

This season marks the return of Exile Island, where each week two loved ones square off against one another in a battle that will send the loser to isolation on Exile Island, while the winner receives reward for his/her Tribe. However, the winner will also have to choose a tribemate to accompany their loved one to Exile Island.

'Survivor XXIX: Blood vs. Water' is set in Nicaragua on the Pacific coast in San Juan del Sur.

'Survivor' is hosted by Jeff Probst and produced by SEG, Inc. Mark Burnett and Jeff Probst are executive producers. CBS Studios International sells the show globally.
