Celebrity Apprentice: renewed, but won’t film until spring

Celebrity Apprentice will return for a seventh season, though not until 2014, and it will film later than usual, in the spring instead of fall. With production in the spring, it’s probably unlikely to air until at least summer.

NBC confirmed the renewal and scheduling to me; a network representative previously revealed these details following inquiries from show superfan Justin Urciuoli. The Mark Burnett-produced series’ future hasn’t been clear since May, when we learned it was not on NBC’s 2013-2014 schedule, though Donald Trump insisted it had been renewed.

Trump tweeted yesterday that the show would be “going forward as soon as I get the time to shoot,” which I guess means that NBC isn’t replacing Donald with Ivanka, which I think should happen.
