CBS has announced the premiere dates for Survivor and The Amazing Race's fall editions.

Survivor's upcoming 27th season -- which is entitled Survivor: Blood vs. Water and currently filming in the Philippines -- will debut a week earlier than most of the rest of the network's fall schedule with a special 90-minute broadcast on Wednesday, September 18 at 8PM ET/PT. 

The Amazing Race's 23rd edition will subsequently premiere on CBS on Sunday, September 29 at 8PM ET/PT.

Survivor host Jeff Probst and The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan will both return for the new seasons.

Survivor: Blood vs. Water will feature returning Survivor castaways competing against family members and loved ones. The upcoming edition's format twist was confirmed by CBS last month following weeks of online speculation.
