UPDATE: Survivor has been taken off the fall schedule on Wednesdays, replaced by S.W.A.T.
“Producers for Survivor, the Network’s perennial Wednesday 8:00 PM series, are continuing to work with officials in Fiji on the appropriate time to start production on its next edition, with health and safety matters the top priority for everyone involved,” CBS said in a statement.
CBS is placing its bets on getting production back up and running for the fall 2020 TV season.
The network announced two new shows will debut in the fall, The Equalizer with Queen Latifah and B Positive starring Thomas Middleditch and Annaleigh Ashford. Clarice, a crime drama set after the events of Silence of the Lambs with Rebecca Breeds as Clarice Starling, will debut midseason along with Undercover Boss. Fox and The CW announced their fall 2020 schedules with Fox airing scripted fare previously planned for spring and summer 2020 and The CW holding premieres of new and returning shows until January 2021.
While only three new shows were announced during the typical upfront window, CBS said viewers can expect additional new shows to be announced at a later date.
