The momentum is there. Survivor, now launching its sixth “new era” season in a post-COVID world, is back. For the second season in a row, it will air ninety-minute episodes while scheduled back-to-back with the thirty-sixth season of The Amazing Race. The former premieres its spring edition on Wednesday, February 28 beginning at 8:00 P.M. Eastern/Pacific.

Before Season 46 launches, I’ll anticipate its return in my traditional pre-season overview that I’ve been releasing for the past two-and-a-half years…

Survivor: Elemental Monsters (Season 41) | PREVIEW & RECAP:

Survivor: Jungle Wars (Season 42) | PREVIEW & RECAP:

Survivor: Savage Life (Season 43) | PREVIEW & RECAP:

Survivor: Free Radicals (Season 44) | PREVIEW & RECAP:

Survivor: Trial by Grit (Season 45) | PREVIEW & RECAP:

And, once again, because I disagree so fervently with Survivor’s decision to eliminate its themes and gimmicks from the “old era,” I’ll also retroactively christen Season 46 with a unique subtitle once its season…
