As is the case for even-numbered seasons, ET Canada will air a half-hour special covering Survivor: Winners at War behind the scenes before the premiere.
Many Survivor fans aren’t as critically online as our readers, and we are. Many are casual fans not in their opinions, but their appreciation for the show, watching whatever airs on television, and not enjoying the wealth of content outside of the show, such as exit interviews, podcast appearances, or reactions from the community at large.
Thankfully, ET Canada has been a staple of preseason coverage for television viewers in Canada and Survivor fans around the world through its online-accessible YouTube channel, providing a ton of interviews with the players and producers, as well as other features such as looks into Tribal Council.
If you haven’t found yourself enjoying their content ahead of the Survivor: Winners at War premiere, then a half-hour before the first episode should suffice. As noted on the Global TV website, Survivor 40: ET Canada with Winners at War will air on Wednesday, February 12, at 7:30 p.m. ET, catching you up on everything you need to know behind the scenes.
You can’t fit everything seen in the preseason within a half-hour timeframe, but you’re likely going to get a healthy bit of interview excerpts from the 20 winners, take a peek at the glorious Tribal Council, hear from Jeff Probst himself, and maybe some extras that haven’t been seen yet. The first Immunity Challenge is a water-based tug of war with rings being the scoring method, so I would be surprised to see the members of the press trying that out.
Regardless, Sangita Patel and the ET Canada crew have done an excellent job covering what you need to know before the season starts, so if you haven’t caught up, it’s a brief primer ahead of one hell of an opening salvo. Winners at War will begin with a two-hour episode following the special from 8 to 10 p.m. ET.
