A new season of Survivor is almost upon us! 

Season 38 of the CBS competition series kicks off next month, featuring 18 castaways hoping to win $1 million and the title of Sole Survivor. Among those competing on the Manu and Kama tribes are 14 new players, and four returning ones -- including familiar faces from Millennials vs. Gen-X, Worlds Apart and Game Changers. 

This season's theme is Edge of Extinction, which according to CBS, indicates a new layer to the game, which will test castaways in an "emotionally and physically difficult" challenge. Those who withstand the test will be given a shot to get back in the game. 

"Survivor continues to reinvent itself with new energy, and this season we’ve added a new secret game-changing twist,” executive producer and host Jeff Probst said in a statement. “After being voted out, players will be faced with a decision to either go home or go to the Edge of Extinction, where they will be pushed further than ever before for a chance to get back in the game.”

Meet this season's castaways below.
