Posted on Sep 23, 2014 | 05:15pm

The wait for an all-new season of Survivor is nearly over. But before you find yourself immersed in the competition, check out everything you should know before watching the premiere.

1. It's round 2 of Blood vs. Water.
Castaways will once again be pitted against their loved ones.  Will blood be thicker than water this season?  Watch what happened the first time around.

2.  No one is coming to the island with previous Survivor experience.
Among the 18 all-new castaways are Amazing Race alums, a former professional baseball player and a male model, but everyone is new to this kind of competition.

3. There's a twist so good that it's coming back.
Prepare for the return of Exile Island, where each week two loved ones square off against one another in a battle that will send the loser to isolation, while the winner receives reward for his/her Tribe.

4. The first immunity challenge of the season is serious business.
The castaways will face the hardest puzzle in Survivor history in their very first immunity challenge of the season.

5. This season might have one of the biggest Tribal Council blindsides ever.
The first season of Blood vs. Water had a Tribal Council blindside that made Jeff Probst's top 5 list. Will this season make the cut?

Tune in to the start of Survivor: San Juan Del Sur tonight at 8/7c on CBS.
