Survivor host and producer Jeff Probst took to social media this weekend to announce the theme of Survivor 50.

“About ten seconds ago we just decided that, thanks to all the fans who were in attendance at the FYC (For Your Consideration) event here in Hollywood, that Survivor 50 will be returning players,” he said in the impromptu announcement.

At the event, Probst had polled the crowd, fans in attendance: “Survivor 50 is coming down the corner. The truth is, we really do focus on 47 and 48, that’s what we’re heading out to shoot next then we have to shoot 49 but we know 50 is coming, so I am curious, is there a feeling? Should 50 be another season with new players and don’t make it a big deal?” he asked.

The crowd didn’t like that idea at all.

“Or should it be returning players?” Probst then asked.

The crowd cheered.

Probst then told the crowd: “In the spirit of, sometimes letting the game be in the hands of the fans, I feel like — and there a couple of people from CBS right now going ‘Oh, my God, what is happening?’ — I feel like we should just commit and make this the moment where we decide that ‘Survivor 50 ‘will be returning players.”

Earlier this week, Probst told Entertainment Weekly that the production team hadn’t decided what to do for Survivor’s landmark 50th season.

“We have not come up with our idea for 50 yet. Obviously, we think about it but I think it’s easier to think about it when you’re writing about Survivor rather than when you’re producing it,” he said.

“We still have 47, 48, and 49, and you might think I’m deflecting, but I don’t. To me, those are stress-inducing problems. What are we going to do in 47? What are we going to do in 48? What are we going to do in 49?” he continued.

Survivor is currently in its 46th season. The finale will air on Wednesday, May 22nd on Global TV.
