survivor entered a “new era” in Season 41, which brought with it a reduced game length, fewer resources, less food, and an influx of new twists. Some were controversial, like the hourglass, while others were more accepted, like the shot in the dark. Fans can expect more or less the same in season 44 since CBS filmed them back-to-back with season 43. but survivor Spoilers suggest another twist will meander into the upcoming season.
[Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers from Survivor Season 44.]
Even though survivor Season 43 is still airing on CBS, the network has released its midseason schedule, which includes season 44.
survivor Season 44 premieres March 1, 2023 at 8 p.m. ET. As is tradition with the reality competition series, the first episode will be two hours long before reverting to its typical one-hour runtime the following week.
Corresponding survivor Spoilers, the upcoming game will feature 18 new castaways. And the producers are expected to follow the same format as the previous three seasons, splitting the cast into three tribes at the start of the season.
CBS filmed survivor season 43 and survivor Season 44 in a row so the production is complete and season 44 spoilers are widely circulated around the internet at the moment. Some claim to know the winner, but we’ll leave that topic for another day. We want to talk about one of the alleged twists in season 44.
According to Inside Survivor, the producers will be introducing an “idol cage” twist, and it’s exactly what it sounds like. At the beginning of the game, each tribe contains a birdcage with an immunity idol locked inside. And if shipwrecked people want the idol, they have to find the key. Luckily, there is a note attached to the cage with instructions on how to get the key.
But this is where it gets good – the cage is outdoors. So all shipwrecked people are immediately made aware of this, but only one person can get the idol. To do this, they must be sneaky and try not to alarm their fellow tribesmen.
Inside Survivor also claims that as soon as someone unlocks a cage, they encounter an authentic and fake idol. Of course, they would take the real idol, leave the fake one behind, and trick the other players into believing that nobody touched the cage.
TIED TOGETHER: “Survivor” spoilers suggest producers aren’t happy with season 43
We miss the days when castaways had to sneak out of camp to get an idol or an asset. Or if they had to grab the idol before the other players during an immunity challenge. So the premise of the idol cage twist and survivor Spoilers got us excited for Season 44.
The “new era” undoubtedly has its fair share of problems. Some twists were just downright unfair – we’re talking about you, Hourglass. And others, like the Knowledge is Power perk, were downright disappointing.
The idol cage twist has the potential to cause maximum havoc, which we are all for. Hopefully this doesn’t backfire, and Season 44 features dynamic players looking to make big moves and make waves. If that’s the case, survivor Season 44 could be the show’s salvation.
survivor Season 43 airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. In the meantime, check back at the showbiz cheat sheet for more survivor Spoiler.
