The broadcaster will air a three-hour season finale of Survivor: Winners at War, which is the 40th season of the reality competition series.
The show, which filmed last summer in Fiji, features 20 returning winners from past Survivor seasons competing for a $2 million prize. Following the 39-day battle, host Jeff Probst will crown the winner. During the finale, Probst will virtually connect by video with all 20 players to discuss the highlights of the season.
It will air Wednesday, May 13 from 8-11 PM. Prior to the finale, CBS will air a two-hour penultimate episode on Wednesday, May 6.
A week later, on Wednesday, May 20, CBS will debut the 32nd season of The Amazing Race. The show, which was filmed at the back end of 2018, will see 11 new teams compete in destinations across Trinidad and Tobago, France, Germany, Kazakhstan and Brazil. Host Phil Keoghan will kick off the show from the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. It comes after the 31st season of the show aired between April and June in 2019.
The Amazing Race will assume its regular 8 PM Wednesday time slot on May 27.
This comes after the 33rd season of The Amazing Race was hit by the COVID-19 outbreak. Filming had started earlier this year in the UK before producers sent the teams home in February. Survivor was not in production as the outbreak took hold.
Survivor is produced by S.E.G. Holdco with Mark Burnett, Probst, Matt VanWagenen, Jesse Jensen and Kahaia Pearson executive producers.
The Amazing Race is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Worldrace Productions in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions. Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri, Mark Vertullo and Keoghan are executive producers.
“When Survivor wraps one of its best seasons ever in May, we’re excited to schedule another signature reality series, The Amazing Race, to step seamlessly into the time period,” said Noriko Kelley, EVP Program Planning & Scheduling, CBS Entertainment.
