CBS has officially renewed The Amazing Race, but only for one more season, which will not air until midseason.
That’s a change from the show’s fairly regular pattern of airing two seasons a year, which has happened consistently since the show’s beginning, with the exception of the year-long gap between seasons four and five, which was followed by three seasons airing over one year.
In a press release announcing its fall schedule, CBS also “announced the pick up of three programs for midseason,” including The Amazing Race 12.
The release doesn’t say when the new season will air, as there has been talk of it possibly moving nights yet again. In the fall, the new reality series Kids’ Nation will take its place on Sundays.
