Light up your tribal council torches because Australian Survivor is back, baby!

The hit TV show is returning to where it all began for season 10, which will see our contestants battle it out in the ultimate game of physical and mental strength.

Featuring a mix of new and returning competitors, the season will run under the most popular theme the franchise has ever seen: Heroes Versus Villains, in the island paradise of Samoa.

But this game of survival is far from the tropical holiday destination we are all dreaming of. Instead, the contestants will fight to survive as they fend for themselves and the chance to win half a million dollars.

Daniel Monaghan, SVP Content and Programming at Paramount, told TV Tonight that the show format was ”fresh and exciting”.

”It’s a mix of returning and new contestants, in the heroes and villians tribe which is exciting.

”I know the Americans often fill it with only returnees but adding new contestants keeps it fresh. It made everyone a bit on edge to be honest.

”The returnees knew how to play with half but not the others, so that provides a great dynamic. The way they played is spectacular”. 

Beloved show host Jonathan LaPaglia is set to return as the host, with an expected air date of January 2023 on Channel 10 and 10play.

He said during filming that the new season was a ”ripper”.

We can’t wait!
