\u201cTo be honest being marooned in a tropical location and going through multiple gruelling physical and psychological challenges sounds amazing, if it means getting out of this shit show. Where do I sign up.\u201d
The BBC says 20 people will be selected to be marooned in a tropical location, where they will be divided into two tribes that go head-to-head in a range of tough challenges.
After a series of eliminations that take place at the now-iconic tribal council, the tribes will eventually merge before one person takes away a large cash prize.
The show - which started in Sweden in is huge in the USA - was named Best Reality Show of All Time by Variety.
50 versions have been commissioned around the world so far.
Kate Phillips, Director of Unscripted at the BBC said: "Survivor is a global television hit and to be able to bring one of TV’s most successful formats to audiences in the UK in a uniquely BBC way is a very exciting prospect indeed."
The show occasionally drifts into controversy. In the US, one contestant said they'd forgive themselves after breaking their no-meat rule to scoff some crab.
