Earlier this month, we reported CBS has renewed The Amazing Race for the 2017-2018 season. Recently, executive producers Bertram van Munster and Elise Doganieri spoke with The Wrap about the future of the TV series.
Hosted by Phil Keoghan, the long-running reality competition series follows teams of two as they travel around the world solving clues for a prize of $1,000,000. The current season (29) airs its finale on June 1st.
In the interview, van Munster said he wasn’t afraid season 29 would be the end for The Amazing Race:
Not at all. We never looked at it that way. Never. I doubt even if the show ended that it wouldn’t be picked up 5 years from now. It is truly an evergreen. It would be a difficult show to sell now because so much is manipulated (now) but ours is not manipulated, it’s not touched, it’s the real thing.”
As for the next season, van Munster says they have a “rough idea” but will confer with CBS soon:
We’re not going to tell you that. (Both laughing). This is all going to be discussed within the next week with the network. We have a rough idea. But we just need to discuss with the network how we can do it.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of The Amazing Race? Are you glad it’s coming back for another season?
Amazing Race is one of the very few programs I watch…however, am a fairly new viewer…love the program.
I love the Amazing Race and have not missed an episode since the very first one. I’ve been waiting to hear when it’s coming back! So, when is it coming back on TV? CBS made a mistake cancelling Code Black – please don’t make the biggest mistake ever by cancelling Amazing Race.
Amazing Race is just that Amazing. I have been to many of the places, and love seeing them, and ideas for new places to travel. I notice the demographics are getting younger for contestants, but understandable with the type of stunts you think up. When is it coming back?
I love this show! Please keep it on the air i love the places they visit, Phil and the contestants……..
I live the show. One of my favorites. Actually applied once and would again if I could find someone to go with me.
Please Keep this Show running, It is the most greatest Reality show there is, and I love to see it more and more. I want more and more.
I am stoked we will see them in the fall. It was murder shows on demand that won’t let me forward and I fall asleep right after it starts. One of my top 3 favorite shows! But enough of the cry baby-whiny Lil kids! 21& over and done.
Couldn’t care less! I watched part of a program once and could see no reason to be interested in it or to continue watching it, whatsoever. The same goes for all so called “reality” TV shows, a complete waste of my time.
