CBS has picked up two more seasons of the original reality competition, Survivor, taking the show into its 25th and 26th seasons. The network also announced a premiere date for Season 24, which kicks off February 15.

Jeff Probst, whose contract was up at the end of Season 24, isn't going anywhere.

"I'm thrilled to continue working on the longest-running reality competition show with the world's greatest adventure crew for two more seasons," he says in a statement. "We are so thankful for the supportive fans who remain with us every season, and we promise to deliver another year of quality television."
