Could it be cancelled or will it be renewed for a 27th season? We’ll have to wait and see.
Phil Keoghan returns as host of the 26th cycle of The Amazing Race. A group of 11 dating couples — six in longstanding relationships while five have just met — race across the world, all in pursuit of a million dollar prize.
