Production was halted on ‘Survivor’ Season 41 and 42

Survivor Season 41 was set to start filming on March 24 within the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji. However, On March 11, 2020, host and producer Jeff Probst despatched a letter to the crew to postpone filming because of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).

“Due to the rising short-term uncertainty surrounding the worldwide unfold of COVID-19 and the corresponding need for the continued well-being of our superb crew, we’ve got determined to push again our begin date for Survivor season 41,” Probst wrote within the letter, as reported by Entertainment Weekly.

Although it may appear straightforward to quarantine the 20 contestants and surrounding manufacturing crew, it’s greater than followers would possibly suppose.

“Our crew numbers are over 400 and are flying in from over 20 different countries, creating a need for more time to fully analyze and create our new production safety plan,” the letter continued. 

When will ‘Survivor’ Season 41 premiere?

“Our intention is to begin production after the S40 live show,” Probst wrote on March 11, 2020. “Therefore, subject to new information, our new planned start date for production would be on or about May 19, 2020. Our intention is to still shoot both seasons 41 and 42.”

Since Probst wrote that letter to the crew, lockdowns have continued all around the United States. Fiji is at present solely reporting 18 instances of the coronavirus, in line with the Worldometer, whereas the US has over 1.four million instances, with over 80,000 deaths because of the virus.

Los Angeles county’s stay-at-home order has been prolonged by way of July 2020, so it doesn’t appear doubtless that manufacturing may start earlier than the order is lifted. If filming may begin in August, there’s a likelihood we would see an October 2020 premiere of season 41. 

Fans don’t see ‘Survivor’ Season 41 premiering anytime in 2020

“They used to flip filming from July-August and aired in late September,” one Reddit person wrote. “Granted, that wasn’t during a pandemic.”

Fans level out that so long as they might do the 39 days of filming over two months, there is likely to be a fall season. 

“If they can start filming by mid-July, we can have a fall season,” one other fan added. 

With the stay-at-home order prolonged by way of July in LA, it doesn’t appear doubtless that the forged and crew may fly out to Fiji in mid-July. 

“I doubt we’ll get another season this year,” one other Redditor wrote. “With all of the flying everyone would need to do, it just isn’t safe.”

While followers doubt there will likely be a season 41 this 12 months, just a few previous contestants steered different concepts. Former castaway Rob Cesternino hopes that Survivor may movie within the midwest over the summer season as a substitute of Fiji.

If the forged and crew can fly out to Fiji late summer season or early fall, it appears to be like like we’ll see season 41 of Survivor in February 2021. Or, in the event that they resolve to shoot someplace within the United States, it is likely to be sooner. As of proper now, CBS has not introduced a set premiere date for the present.
