Phil Keoghan tweets that Amazing Race has been renewed; 15th season now casting

Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan broke the news on Twitter that the series he hosts has been officially renewed for a 15th season.

He wrote, “Great news. Just got the call from the Network. CBS has ordered another season of ‘The Amazing Race.’” He’s currently biking across America and is writing about his journey on Twitter.

CBS confirmed an hour later on Twitter, which The Hollywood Reporter says helped the show “[make] history as the first series whose renewal was announced on Twitter.” In the official press release, CBS notes that the series “is currently averaging 10.94 million viewers” in its 14th season.

The show is currently casting, and the application says there is no deadline but casting producers have “a strong preference to receive your applications as early as possible.”
