CBS knows a good thing when it sees it.
Having already renewed How I Met Your Mother for two years and extended The Big Bang Theory's run by three seasons, Survivor got the multi-season re-up this week.
TV's longest-running reality competition series will air its 23rd and 24th installments during 2011-12's TV season. Host Jeff Probst also signed a contract extension.
“Survivor is a program franchise that continues to stand the test of time,” said CBS executive Jennifer Bresnan in a statement Wednesday, summing up the decision.
“Each season delivers new faces, exotic places, the ultimate social experiment combined with game play, and one of the most engaged audiences on primetime.”
Survivor: Redemption Island is currently in the midst of a game-changing season. Read all about last night's developments in detail in our weekly Survivor review!
