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?

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.

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.

For me it depends. If they’re willing to leave out teams from a season like 26, I’d be fine with one more season. But if not, I feel like we already have great potential of teams to choose from.

I agree with violetb that the show needs a fresh cast now. Not only that, the casuals need fewer teams that look like obvious recruits.
And I personally don't want to see another AS/UB until at least S33. I just don't want another scenario where there isn't a big enough of a pool to pick teams from, so that once a few decline, we're left with threepeaters or people that weren't even that memorable.

I see us going back to Sundays at 8 because CBS' numbers haven't been so hot on that night. CBS usually makes a lot of their renewals the last week of March so we could find out about an official renewal in the next 2 weeks

I think they’re wary of returning Racer seasons. There have apparently never gotten all their first choice teams, or ours, for that matter, and those seasons tend not to have a great shelf life, I.e., they can be sitting on the bench waiting to be called up.
T
And as to casting, I favor the “most competitive teams they can find” model, without gimmicks. That’s a big part of what made season 30 work so well.

If they do season 32 all stars i am good with that and I hope its not like all stars 2 because margie and luke, Jet and Cord and flight time and big easy gets a 3rd time i think we should leave season 26 behind cause its dating couples and that season was quite boring.

This is the most terrifying prospect ever. Even if we had to, I'm fine with waiting till TAR 34, 35 even - but for the love of god no threepeaters or any subpar or unmemorable teams (*cough* John and Jessica). season 24 was a trashfire in all aspects and nobody wants a repeat of that.

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

Hopefully it means that. However, I'd just like to point that was the same filming window for 29. Back in 2016, and we wouldn't see the season emerge until March the following year...

If TAR were still twice a year, then an All-Stars season would make sense. Now, it's probably in TAR's best interest to go with new casts. The next returning Racers season will probably be the very final season of TAR.

Ending off with an All-Stars would actually be kinda depressing. How many people are going to want to watch a group of returnees knowing new people are never going to get the chance to be casted anymore?

I was just posting that on FB. Thankfully I am not thinking it is an ALL season celebrities.

Just hoping for a nice regular season. Hope they aren't doing a dating/singles season.

It wasn't. I don't think James Corden can race, like I thought he was British? and you need to be an American citizen to race.

It's definitely not an actual audition. It's just interesting and random he'd be doing this little network synergy sketch now when TAR30 is long done. It would've nice to maybe have back in January to get a couple more eyes to TAR, you know?

At the same time, someone definitely told the intern running TAR's social media accounts to keep an eye out for the fans' response to even the slightest possibility of celebrity Racers. No doubt it's on Moonves' mind after CBB. So gauging public interest in a possible celebrity Race is not far-fetched.

If CBS plans on returning TAR to twice a year starting in the Fall, then making one of them a "gimmick" season (celeb season included) and the other a normal season is... okay. But if TAR31 remains a benchwarmer next season, I think it's not a good idea to go gimmicky or even a contrived theme season.

Pretty much the only logical answer. Chances are that it's nothing more than something made solely for Corden's show. Nothing more, nothing less.

He is British and hence unable to apply. Great publicity though!

Now if we had this when TAR30 was airing, it would have quite possibly gauged the viewership higher with the late show watchers. Great effort on Devine and Corden's "faux"dition though. :clap2:

I not only want new racers, I hope we do NOT ever see some of the gimmicks we saw last year - switching up teams, having challenges at the finish line (which totally sucked for the skiers since they came in first one leg but didn't do so well at the challenge and lost the first place prize), etc. etc. etc.

I'm gonna stray away from the all-star discussion.

How about the 25-30 days? Doesn't Phil usually advertise this with "12 legs, 21 days"? Could this mean a longer-than-usual route?

I think that is a general info post for racer planning, not a confirmed # of days. But 23-25 seems more usual lately.

Despite that tagline, most seasons are longer than 21 days (even when taking away a day due to crossing the international date line). The last season that was 21 days was season 24

I would love to have 13 legs in the original American race since it was last used in the first All-Stars.

I think that includes whatever time was spent in sequester pre-race. Jody mentioned in a video (?) that they were in a hotel for five days before the starting date.

This might b more on the wishlist side, but I hope they never go back to 13-leg races, unless those include 12 teams.
Those early seasons felt so predictable to me, because the 13th leg required another NEL to be added, which slowed down the pace of the race.

I much prefer the current format.

I think it's more likely they go down to 11 Legs than ever back up to 13 Legs. Especially if CBS wants to use TAR to bridge Survivor seasons on Wednesdays again. They obviously found much success using TAR in that slot and might do even better with a regular schedule. Though even with 11 Legs, CBS would still have to double-up at least maybe the premiere and finales to squeeze the show into the slot before Survivor would return end of February.

Otherwise, they'll stick with 12. Especially if TAR31 gets a fall slot.

But anyway, great news for this amazing show!

Would be the 2018-19 season mean it will air half in 2018 and 2019, or 2 TARs between this year and next year? ???

Best be cautious and expect just one season to stave off the disappointment of raised expectations - the show's on course to lose its fourth consecutive Emmy later this year anyhow.

They never say that. It is usually a renew one +an "unofficial" renew a second, so planning can begin. We have to wait for upfronts for a fall date vs the mid-season replacement thing.

This time, CBS did not mention 2 cycles for Survivor in the renewal announcement, which was different.
