Hi guys,

Australian Survivor first started in Australia in 2002 on the Nine Network.
Then in 2006 another season was created by the Seven Network, this time as a Celebrity Edition.
And in 2016 a new rendition was created by Channel 10. This time it was more successful and it was renewed for another season.

So what I am requesting is that each of these renditions of Australian Survivor is treated as a different series. Because they are all completely different shows produced by completely different networks. Would it be possible to have one series for 2002 version, one for the 2006 version and another one for the 2016 version?

Also, Channel 10 has explicitly said during episodes in the 2017 season that it was Season 2 not Season 4. Meaning they consider it a different show to the previous versions.

Thanks if it can be changed and if not then no worries! :D

Ordinarily, the qualifier for a unique gameshow listing here is whether the core concept is unique in the host nation (which is exceedingly rare). Good examples include Family Feud or Whose Line Is It Anyway?.

Okay so changes like this would only be allowed on the US version?

Not sure how people reach that conclusion; "host nation" includes the US, so that shouldn't be any different.
It should say something about enforcement that I had to check, but this is indeed also the case with the US series:

I'm new here and have just joined Plex. I know that Plex relies on the information from TVDB so I'm not sure how to display seasons 1 and 2 when TVDB is not showing the correct number of episodes. There should be 26 episodes in season 1 and 27 for season 2... but TVDB is only showing 13 episodes for season 1 and 12 for season 2. Can I make a request to change this information?
