It is an anthology edition which is announced for the emission of TF 1 baptized "Koh-Lanta: the legend".
On the occasion of the 20 years of the game, twenty former candidates gathered in French Polynesia in the spring for 36 days of adventure.
A high-level reunion that will be broadcast from Tuesday, August 24.
A risky bet for the chain as the program is associated with its usual Friday box.
Only "The Return of the Heroes", in 2009 had already been entitled to a broadcast on Tuesday.
Still, after a disappointing season that ended in early June, the fans are very impatient.
The casting, revealed in April by our colleagues from “TV Mag”, was the right one.
Among the candidates for the meeting, many of whom have already crossed paths during their previous participations, include Claude, Teheiura, Clémence, Jade or Freddy.
A season that promises
This edition is a great gift to aficionados who have followed “Koh-Lanta” for many years.
Because even if the most passionate will particularly regret the absence of Grégoire (discovered in 2011 in "Koh-Lanta: Palawan" and winner of the "Clash of heroes" in 2012), the crème de la crème of adventurers is present, sweeping a wide range of seasons.
After a conclusive premiere for "Koh-Lanta, the secret weapons", shot last fall and broadcast in spring, the new season also took place in French Polynesia with success.
By respecting an ever stricter health protocol, so that the Covid-19 does not endanger the emission.
The motivation of all the candidates is at its highest, promising good fights during the various tests.
They will not be spared besides since the production has worked hard to raise the difficulty of the games and to harden the conditions of survival so that even the most experienced are surprised.
"Koh-Lanta" celebrates its 20th anniversary and we want more.
