TAR RENEWED FOR ANOTHER SEASON!

Important to note that the slightly misleading 2016-2017 Season announcement, that terminology refers to ongoing regular shows.
 
With TAR 's unique air times, we have had misuderstandings before.
 
I am pretty sure we have a ONE SEASON RENEWAL as has been CBS's practice in recent years.
 
But congrats all around!!  TAR 29 is a GO!

But then we never got official confirmation during TAR25/27 that 26 and 28 were a go? Surely we've made it to both seasons if Survivor is already planning 33 and 34 right now?

Just according to the link posted by Peach, TAR was renewed for season 29, while Survivor was also renewed for season 33, but there's no official word for season 34.

Thing is, Survivor now films both seasons in the same vicinity back-to-back. This current season was unusual in that it was filmed immediately prior to Survivor 31, in order to set up the viewer voted season 31, but that was the exception to their practice these days. I would expect Survivor to go back to filming their fall and then spring season back-to-back for seasons 33-34.
As to TAR, the lead time to prepare the spring cycle is such that the route/task planning and the casting has to be underway before the fall cycle begins airing. That even holds for returning racer seasons as well. That's why I think the renewal was in fact for both 29/20. JMHO. YMMV.

You can see what I said here: http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,31937.msg1157556.html#msg1157556

"Unofficial" renewal yes. "Official" renewal ...no.
