Although it could be filmed this year it's quite unlikely. They'd have to leave in the next 2 days or so because they want racers to be back home by Christmas i presume.

He said before the end of Jan, which we shouldn't rule out at all.
If they really wanted to film S30 to have the possibility of airing it before S29 (as Peach first suggested), I don't see how that wouldn't be possible.

Bottom line...def possible but now appearing unlikely. They could do it...BUT Getting a GOOD cast takes time. If 29 is in the works to air sometime this year, then the pressure is off because we HAVE a season in the can.

Since we now know that TAR29 is airing from April 21, the season could be filmed anywhere from March-June????

That doesn't make sense Bourkue. FILMING times have NO relationships to Show times.

30 could film anytime when they have a cast...or never. Let's give times a break please.

Please green light 30 before 29 airs.

It would be bad if they wait until 29 premieres and then green lights 30.

As I have said, I think we are fine for 30.  After that, my hope is at least a once year show.

Bottom line is We don't know. 29 is in some ways risky, if it is a rating disaster that is bound to affect us. I THINK it will be fun, but we have to see.

But this is a important season. So THINK before you post negativity on FB.  be constructive.  :tup:

As for that, TAR 30 may start filming in January per my previous post a few weeks ago. With the casting website that the production deadline will end in January to follow the guidelines for race 30 taping.

If I recall correctly, the last January filming was TAR 5.
My posts are fine, so please be careful.

I agree with you Claude. TAR can easily film in Jan and visit summer paradises in the Southern Hemisphere

At the moment, it's hard to speculate about TAR30. I think that we will wait the entire broadcast of season 29 because TAR30 is uncertain for the moment.

I'm pretty sure we WILL see a TAR 30. WHEN is another issue, but remain hopeful.

Yeah, I believe we are OK for TAR30, but we will have to see if we are on for S31

IMO, TAR29 will air and then MAYBE TAR30 will film around the same time TAR29 did earlier this year and then will air in November. But, this is just PURE SPLECTION.

I think Japan and Germany will be visited in TAR30. Japan was first visited in S9 and it was visited every three seasons after that (S12, S15, S18). However, it did jump one season early, but it did continue the pattern (S20 then S23 & S26). I think Japan will be visited one season later, aka S30. Also, TAR loves to go to europe, and its even better with the "winter theme", and Germany and Switzerland would be perfect for that, but I think Germany would be visited.

I don't think they'll wait until the next winter to film S30 though.

:welcome2: to RFF RealityFan11!!

We know the route for 29 (spoilers) but I have also been wondering about the interesting fact that the SF Travel Show and the casting call were sponsored by the Taiwan and Fiji tourist boards...  ???

Question, about how much of TAR's budget is subsidized by the local tourism offices/departments? Do some countries pay more than others? (Maybe some not at all? and they only provide logistical support, etc?)

I only ask because it got me thinking about how Indonesia basically paid for half of TARA5. And if TARUS is to survive past TAR29, one way that would be possible is for them to reach out to countries/local offices who would be willing to basically pay for that TAR commercial time, lessening the "out of pocket" expense for TAR itself which will surely have an even lower budget moving forward, regardless.

I don't think we know or ever will know the budget details. But I found it interesting that the Casting Call was supported by Taiwan. I see the Travel Show itself, but a casting call is new I believe. By all reports they were very gracious hosts, so  :tu !! But strange...
