How to watch Survivor online for free
If longtime Survivor stans know anything, it’s that the gimmick makes or breaks the season. In 2018, it was Survivor: David vs. Goliath, featuring two Biblical tribes. Tribe David was made up of “underdogs” while tribe Goliath was composed of “overachievers.” Online, fans are already speculating about this year’s theme.
The trailer has led many to believe that this season will place players in isolation, which is causing some controversy. Still, since this season is set in Fiji for the seventh time, it’s good to know there will be a dramatic new element. This year, in its 38th season, the reality survival series will feature 14 new contestants as well as four fan-favorite return players—Joe Anglim(Worlds Apart, Second Chance), Aubry Bracco (Kaôh Rōng, Game Changers), Kelley Wentworth (Second Chance, San Juan del Sur), and David Wright (Millennials vs. Gen-X)—Edge of Extinction.

If you want to keep up with Survivor season 38 full episodes, take a look at CBS’s own streaming service, CBS All Access.

We suggest signing up and subscribing so you can watch the current season as it’s released. (Here’s the complete guide to Hulu Live TV channels.)
