From two months ago:
The Amazing Race will be back! Although fans are still waiting for word of an official renewal from CBS for our favorite series, TAR 18 is apparently a definite GO!!
Plans for TAR 18 seem to be well under way. The next season of TAR will reportedly include a group of former racers from Season 12 onwards, and may already be completely casted. At least one round of "final" racer casting interviews has already occurred.
With the lack of any official TAR 18 applications, it has been widely speculated online for months that TAR 18 could be an "All-Stars" of some sort. While that term is not being used officially as of yet, it IS clear that we are going to have another chance to see some of our favorite (and perhaps not so favorite racers) in action again!
Filming is expected to begin later this fall.
Details remain the same.
TAR 18 is a cast of former racers from Seasons 12-17*. Whether or not TPTB will choose to call this ALLStars or not is of course, in their hands. Some of the cast is certainly
AS worthy, others, as in Season 11, perhaps will be debated.
There does seem to be a certain selection of teams who may have something they have wanted/needed to prove.... second chances, particular rematches, old rivalries revived?? Others may have been chosen simply because they were/are CBS favorites. One season may have incredibly
been overlooked entirely.
But in any case, this should be a dynamite race!
As always, per RFF's practices, exact info on teams and possible start city will be withheld until it is believed that the teams are safely underway and it is possible to share without jeopardizing anyone's chances.
sequestered, production IS
on the move, so the wait should not be long!!
And... it appears there may well be a starting line task again as well...will we see the Express Pass return? Stay tuned!! * except for one pesky rumor of "another" reality team that cannot be ruled out, but seems doubtful.
