Survivor 43 will be the forty-third season of the CBS competitive reality television series Survivor.


Following the production of Survivor 41 and 42 under COVID-19-mandated restrictions, Jeff Probst has described his preference for elements and mechanics introduced during the preceding seasons. In particular, Jeff has supported the continuation of the accelerated 26-day game format, the continued implementation of the Shot in the Dark mechanic, and the on-location aftershow following the announcement of the Sole Survivor at the Final Tribal Council.[3]


  • Shortened Game: Like 41 and 42, the game only lasted for 26 days, 13 days shorter than the standard 39.
  • Tribe Division: The 18 castaways were divided into 3 tribes of 6.
  • Shot in the Dark: By sacrificing one's vote at Tribal Council, a player in trouble may invoke this advantage for a chance to be immune from the vote. While the chance of a favorable outcome was slim, if successful, the play acted as if a Hidden Immunity Idol was played.
