Castaways is an American reality television show produced by ABC. The series premiered on August 7, 2018, and chronicles the lives of 12 individuals as they try to survive on a number of islands in Indonesia.[1][2] Unlike other reality shows, participants on Castaways may not be initially aware that there are other "Castaways" nearby.[3] This had led some sources to compare the show to Lost.[4][5] Moreover, the participants can leave only by waiting for a rescue team at the end of the show or by quitting.[3]

Each castaway has one piece of luggage. They all arrive alone and with their or someone else's luggage washed up on shore with them. Everyone is required to have a journal in their luggage where they write about themselves, thus allowing those who find it to learn about them.

There is currently no word as to whether or not the show will be receiving a second season.
