CBS announces the 20 Former Castaways who will return to seek Revenge and Redemption, on “Survivor: Heroes Vs Villains”
20th Installment of the Hit Television Series,
Hosted by Emmy Award Winner Jeff Probst, Premieres with a Special Two-Hour
Episode on Thursday, Feb. 11
Twenty former castaways will return to compete on SURVIVOR: HEROES VS.
VILLAINS, when the 20th installment of the Emmy Award-winning series
premieres with a special two-hour episode, Thursday, Feb. 11 (8:00-10:00 PM,
ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
SURVIVOR: HEROES VS. VILLAINS will reunite some of the most memorable,
heroic and controversial castaways from previous SURVIVOR seasons.
The series’ best strategists will face off in their attempt to overcome - or
embrace - the label placed upon them when they return to seek revenge or
redemption, all in an effort to win the title of Sole Survivor.
These memorable castaways will compete on the breathtaking island of Samoa deep
in the South Pacific and will be divided into two tribes of 10 comprised of the
best HEROES and biggest VILLAINS ever to play the game. The
HEROES have been defined by their decisions of integrity, courage and
honor, while the VILLAINS have mastered their skills of deception,
manipulation and duplicity.
The series will follow the relationships and conflicts that develop among the
two divergent groups. Ultimately some castaways will be forced to choose
between pre-existing relationships or tribe loyalty in the spirit of
competition. What happens on a tribe full of HEROES? Will
the VILLAINS self-destruct or will they be able to co-exist?
