So from this, can we assume this will not be a returning-racer season? Does anyone remember if there was a casting call during UB or AS 2?

Nice! So we're probably looking at an autumn-ish season?

At this point even mactors would be fine :lol:
The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move

Wherever CBS wants us...we are the good luck relief pitchers!

My guess is this is newbies...at least I HOPE so!

A filming period in June, points to a fall airing. Filming of TAR 30 in October led to a January-February airing, so about the same amount of time for post-production and promotion if intended for fall season, or at least designated reliever.

Personally, this fits what Phil said about being likely to film two seasons in 2018.....

I could see us going back to Sundays in the fall due to general disarray of the night for networks, CBS in particular. They're launching a new show at 8 pm this Sunday called Instinct, I will be watching it's numbers closely. Cancel Madam Secretary, move NCIS LA to 10, put TAR at 8 and find something else for 9.

Excited to hear that.
But I really hope there's no theme this season, not even a "most competitive race" one.

YASS !! I hope they finish editing quick and we get to see the race by the end of 2018. Perfect way to end the year ! Hopefully we finally get strong FFs and maybe one of them win...

Too soon for an AllStars. The last ones did not fare well.

Maybe an unfinished business? It was 6 seasons after all stars last time, so now is the perfect time

Don't think so. They don't need to casting for that right?

That’s exactly what I was wondering. Did they do a casting call during 11, 18 or 24?

At the moment I am thinking this is a regular season, not a returning racer season.

You shouldn't facepalm, that's a legit question, as CBS has done Survivor casting calls when there is actually a returnee season in the works.

Sorry. I have explained this multiple times.

There are real casting calls where CBS is on site and CBS camera crews are filming and the tapes are presumably given to casting and hopefully reviewed.

Then there are casting calls at places like car dealers and casinos where there may be local TV affiliates but no CBS crew or representatives. Those have appeared to be primarily for location publicity purposes. In the past, there has been alleged doubt about whether or not those vids are ever seen by CBS casting.

And yes. There were two reliable casting calls recently when 30 was a recruited season. Hopefully they are looking at those vids this time.

Wait, how many people want a returning cast and how many of y'all want a fresh cast?

I personally feel the race should get a new cast till the wounds of low ratings have healed (pun intended?)
I mean sure we're prime time rn, but still TAR needs to improve its ratings. A fresh cast with interesting teams, internal drama, new locations and amazing tasks - If the race manages to even accomplish 3 of 4 then I'm pretty sure TAR would be the hot topic round town. In season 32 we should have a returners cast and that'd be pretty monumental.
