Phil Keoghan, get your passport ready! CBS has announced that The Amazing Race has been renewed for the 2016-17 season. It’s unknown if the network has renewed the venerable competition series for one or two cycles at this point but we do know there will at least be a 29th competition.
Hosted by Keoghan, the 28th cycle of The Amazing Race is currently airing on Friday nights. This season features 11 pairs of contestants racing around the world in pursuit of a million dollar prize. Each team features at least one Internet celebrity.
The current season’s ratings are on par with last spring’s edition, averaging a 1.11 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.77 million viewers. That’s also about the same as last Fall’s edition.
Today, the network announced 2016-17 season renewals of 10 other shows as well — 2 Broke Girls, Blue Bloods, Elementary, Hawaii Five-0, Madam Secretary, Mom, NCIS: Los Angeles, NCIS: New Orleans, Scorpion, and Survivor.
