TORONTO, August 23, 2023 – Today, Global announced premiere dates for its fall 2023 schedule, which brings the most exciting new and returning reality programming to the forefront alongside the most talked about new Canadian scripted drama. First, it wouldn’t be fall without a new season of Canada’s #1 reality show Survivor back for Season 45 and featuring supersized 90-minute episodes each week starting Wednesday, September 27 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. Also on Wednesday nights, the contemporary re-imagining of the Robin Hood legend, produced by Boat Rocker and from acclaimed creator Director X, Robyn Hood, debuts after much anticipation Wednesday, September 27 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Then, Global’s unscripted slate of programming ups the ante this fall with new series premieres including Buddy Games from Josh Duhamel (Thursday, September 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT), Lotería Loca hosted by Jaime Camil (Monday, October 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT) and Raid the Cage (Friday, October 13 at 9 p.m. ET/PT).

Joining these new and returning series, I Can See Your Voice is back for Season 3 and is once again hosted by Ken Jeong (Tuesday, September 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT). Then, new to Global this fall, U.S. television’s #1 entertainment show** Yellowstone from renowned creator Taylor Sheridan and starring Kevin Costner makes its conventional TV premiere Sunday, September 17 at 8:30 p.m. ET. Other fan favourites and perennial hits returning this fall on Global include: 48 Hours (Saturday, September 16 at 9 p.m. ET/PT), 60 Minutes (Sunday, September 17 at 7:30 p.m. ET), SEAL Team (Thursday November 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT), The Wall (Friday, November 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT), plus much more.

“This fall, Global’s schedule promises to deliver audiences fresh premium content filled with the most exhilarating reality competitions and exciting edge-of-your seat scripted series,” said Troy Reeb, Executive Vice President, Broadcast Networks, Corus Entertainment. “Whether it’s with your crew of castaways for Survivor, your best friends for Buddy Games, or your merry band for Robyn Hood, Global’s lineup brings everyone together for unforgettable primetime entertainment each night of the week.”

First announced in June 2022, the wait is finally over for the new Global original Robyn Hood from acclaimed Canadian music video director and filmmaker Director X. The eight-episode, one-hour series stars an up-and-coming cast featuring Jessye Romeo, Nykeem Provo, Idrissa Sanogo Bamba, Ksenia Daniela Kharlamova, Jonathan Langdon, Sydney Kuhne, Ian Matthews, Kira Guloien, Manuel Rodriguez-Saenz, and Lisa Michelle Cornelius.

Robyn Hood follows Robyn Loxley, a young woman whose masked hip-hop band, The Hood, is known for their inventive videos and anti-authoritarian message. She lives in Sherwood Towers, a community of rental high-rises in a working-class corner of New Nottingham, where the cost of living has skyrocketed, leaving an ever-widening gap between the rich and everyone else. When Robyn finds herself fighting for her home and her family against local property developer John Prince and The Sheriff of New Nottingham, Robyn and her band The Hood decide to fight back, righting the wrongs of the corrupt elite to give back to the people.

The series is produced and distributed globally by Boat Rocker.

Then, new to Global this fall, Yellowstone will have its broadcast premiere starting from the beginning of Season One, starring Oscar®, Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Kevin Costner as John Dutton, the patriarch of a powerful, complicated family of ranchers. A sixth-generation homesteader and devoted father, Dutton controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States. He operates in a corrupt world where politicians are compromised by influential oil and lumber corporations and land grabs make developers billions. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds and hard-earned respect, Dutton’s property is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation and America’s first national park.


The hilarious new competition series Buddy Games, created and hosted by Josh Duhamel joins Global’s lineup this fall. Buddy Games is a reality competition inspired by executive producer Josh Duhamel’s real-life annual tradition with his lifelong friends. For the past 20 years, one weekend a summer, Duhamel reunites with his childhood friends to compete in a variety of competition-style games. Based on Duhamel’s own experience, Buddy Games will bring together best friends from different backgrounds and offer them the same opportunity to live together, compete in wild challenges and prove their bonds run deep.

Also new to Global, the high-octane Lotería Loca hosted by Jaime Camil (Jane the Virgin) sees two players go head-to-head and take turns picking cards to get four-in-a-row, which is Lotería. Each time a card appears on their unique bingo-style card, they bank big money. Landing on one of the “Loca Cards” creates a twist in the game and gives players the opportunity to bank even more cash by competing in wild, interactive challenges. The player who gets the most “Loterías” on their board the fastest, moves on to the dramatic final round for a chance to win the ultimate show cash prize.

Lotería Loca was created by Jeff Apploff, Aaron Solomon and Alejandro Trevino. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Unscripted Television in association with Warner Horizon and Apploff Entertainment. Jeff Apploff, Jaime Camil, Mike Darnell, Dan Sacks, Bridgette Theriault and Aaron Solomon are executive producers. Alejandro Trevino serves as co-executive producer. Apploff will also serve as showrunner.

Rounding out Global’s fresh new slate of unscripted programming, Raid the Cage is an action-packed game show where two teams of two face off to grab-and-go prizes from the Cage before their time runs out and the doors close. Correctly answering trivia questions adds seconds to the clock, giving teammates more time to grab prizes ranging from luxury items to electronics. After three rounds, the team who banks the highest total dollar value in prizes wins the game, keeps what they grabbed and plays the final round for even bigger prizes including a car.

Raid the Cage is produced by Sony Pictures Television’s Game Show division. Jack Martin serves as Executive Producer. Raid the Cage is distributed globally by Sony Pictures Television.
