CBS is taking every precaution when it comes to the coronavirus. Deadline reports the network has shut down production on season 33 of The Amazing Race.
Hosted by Phil Keoghan, the long-running competition series follows 12 teams of two as they race around the world to win one million dollars on this reality competition series.
Due to increased concerns and uncertainty regarding the coronavirus around the world, CBS and the producers of The Amazing Race have taken the precautionary measure of temporarily suspending production on the 33rd season of the series. All contestants and production staff are in the process of returning home.
At this time, no Racers or anyone on the production team traveling with them have contracted the virus, or shown symptoms, and we are not aware of anyone being exposed to it.
Out of an abundance of caution, everyone involved in the show will continue to be monitored when they return home. The health and well-being of the Racers and the production team are our top priorities.”
