CBS just announced the renewals of both Survivor and The Amazing Race for the 2016-2017 season, and presumably for the typical two seasons each.

Big Brother was previously renewed and returns this summer for its 18th season.

There was no other information in the press release—just a list of renewed shows—but neither show’s renewal is a surprise.

Survivor starts filming its 33rd and 34th seasons in Fiji soon.

And Survivor has been a consistent ratings performer, in the top 20 and sometimes top 10 of all shows, while TAR has stayed consistent on Fridays.
All three of CBS’ big reality series have earned prime-time Price is Right specials that will air soon.
