It’s been over a year since “Survivor” viewers have seen a new season of the CBS competition series, but on Wednesday, fans will get to watch as 18 new castaways start competing for the title of sole survivor.

The new era of “Survivor” will start off with three tribes competing for the $1 million prize. Unlike past installments, this season the cast will compete at a much speedier pace.

CBS has warned that the installment’s players will “face a faster, more intense and more dangerous season than ever before” which will “test even the strongest super-fan, as supplies are minimal, reward challenges are scarce, and players find themselves faced with advantages that could significantly help their game or, just as easily, extinguish their torch.”

Prior to the 2021 premiere of “Survivor,” get to know the cast members and their tribes:
