I Survived is an American live-action children's action drama television series based on the successful book series of the same name by Lauren Tarshis. The show aired 26 episodes, each based on the books (with the exception of half of season 1). It premiered on February 5, 2016.

On Janaury 8, 2016, 1 month prior to the show airing, a season 2 was announced in the making. Unlike the book series, it will not be based on the books. On March 5, 2017, however, the show was abruptly cancelled without a definite reason, and ended on April 4, 2017 after airing of the 26th and last episode of season 1. The second season was shelved and planned episodes were never revealed. Lauren Tarshis, writer of the original book series the show was based on and creator of the show, said she was "heartbroken" at the news, but is open to making I Survived TV specials in the near future. No other news have since come from this until Christmas Eve 2017, when it was announced than an adaptation of the newest I Survived book, I Survived the Children's Blizzard, 1888, would air in March 2018, and would count as an episode rather than a special. It also aired with six additional episodes. This confirmed that the series had been brought back as a "soft reboot" of sorts, and had not ended yet. 52 episodes had been ordered throughout 2018, but it was shortened to 40 episodes due to budgeting issues.

In an interview with Amid Amidi of the website Cartoon Brew, Serena Gamble, president for The CC (Cartoon Comedy), stated that she had initially wanted to cancel the show after 26 episodes to accommodate more animated programming, but digressed and ordered 14 more episodes (though apparently part of the first season, are now part of an unofficial second season on The CC APP) in order to properly end the show, a strategy "essential" to the channel. The first batch of seven episodes surprisingly aired on The CC APP instead of the official channel on March 20, 2018, while the last batch of the remaining seven episodes premiered on the app on May 29, 2018.

Plot

The plot revolves around kids, all boys, from different backgrounds and years, live to tell their stories of surviving infamous disasters, such as the Titanic and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

While 40 episodes were aired in total for the first and only season, The CC APP treats 26 episodes, plus 3 specials, as the first season, and the last 14 episodes of 2018 as the second season, due to the long-year gaps between episodes 26 and 27.
