Jeff Probst apparently has a busy summer ahead of him.

The Survivor host has revealed that the long-running CBS reality series' next two installments will be filmed back-to-back this summer, beginning with the show's nineteenth season in Samoa.

Probst revealed Survivor's upcoming filming schedule when discussing its impact on his new Live for the Moment reality series.

"I can't even start shooting [Live for the Moment] until the end of September, when I'm back from double duty on Survivor," he told The New York Post in a Tuesday report. "The earliest I could have episodes done would be January."

Assuming Probst's Live for the Moment explanation is accurate, it would represent the first time ever that Survivor has ever filmed two seasons back-to-back.  While Survivor's fall editions traditionally film during the summer, the show's spring editions are usually filmed in November and early December and wrap production just prior to CBS' broadcast of the fall edition's finale.

CBS formally ordered the nineteenth and twentieth editions of Survivor for broadcast during the upcoming 2009-2010 season in February.

Probst announced Samoa as the setting for Survivor's nineteenth season at the conclusion of May's Survivor: Tocantins reunion show.
