So.

TARCanada usually posts a next season casting announcement in early October.

Right now...zilch.

TARCanada usually closes Applications in Mid November.

Right now...zilch.

Anyone thinking this may be  an All Stars/Returning Racers season??   :spy:

Possibly. They do have enough compelling teams for a second chance season, not sure about an all-stars.

We'd been hearing for years that CTV only ordered 6, so it's totally up in the air now. But with the improved ratings over Season 5, there's always a possibility.

There is good 'speculation' that TAR Canada 7 is an 'All-Star' season...

Heck, just look at the TAR Canada Wishlist thread!  :funny:

Agreed i think it might be an all stars season i think we have like more than enough teams for second chance so i would be happy if TAR CAN does All stars cause the competion would be crazy and amazing and would draw viewers from around the globe

I'm just wondering if they would announce a season 7 this early if they didn't have to do the usual casting process...
Like maybe they could announce in March that TARC returns next summer with an All-Star edition. Or would they need to announce it in advance? (Like December/January?)

They can announce it as late as May given the American edition's treatment of 11, 18, 24, and now 31.

Yes, I feel he means renewal... but I can't believe CTV wouldn't want to renew it... Its the most watched show of the summer, won lots of prize... I know it costs a lot of money but still...

That was me that tweeted that.  The same day, a whole bunch of the producers liked my tweet.  It seems like they're all together, ready to go, and waiting for something from the network to let them proceed.  They sound just as anxious as we are.

Could they be waiting for an official renewal annoucement from CTV? ???

That's what it sounds like for me.  Chances are good that, since the ratings are so good, the production company is negotiating for a much sweeter deal from the network.

I hope so!!

Or in a big twist, they are all faking it, and since it's an All-Star season they don't need to announce it early as they don't have to do casting!
But I hope it's a regular season, that said it's getting quite late now. They usually have the first rounds of interviews in december...

Casting for season 7 is open.

https://www.ctv.ca/The-Amazing-Race-Canada/Articles/Latest/Season-7-Announcement-Casting?cid=ctv2018_112218_community_twitter_TARCS7Casting

Quote
Following a heroic sixth season finale this past September, host Jon Montgomery announced today that the adventure continues as CTV has renewed The Amazing Race Canada for a seventh season to air next summer.The announcement sets the stage to welcome an all-new cast of racers to the starting line, as they push themselves out of their comfort zones in a non-stop, action-packed race. The most-watched Canadian series of the year, The Amazing Race Canada is currently available for customized and wholly integrated brand partnership opportunities.

“The Amazing Race Canada is the tent-pole series that anchors summers on CTV,” said Mike Cosentino, President, Content and Programming, Bell Media. “We are thrilled to welcome back this ratings powerhouse and award-winning production for a seventh season as casting begins and sponsorship opportunities open.”

The Amazing Race Canada is looking for new teams with a story to share about what has given them the confidence to take on an amazing adventure. Fans and aspiring racers with stories of strength, determination, and perseverance are invited to pair up with someone they know – a friend, sibling, parent, partner, or anyone else they share a relationship with – and submit an audition for the opportunity to embark on a once-in-a-lifetime expedition.

The submission deadline is January 2 at 11:59 p.m. ET. For all casting details and updates, including instructions on how to submit an audition video, viewers can visit CTV.ca/TheAmazingRaceCanada, the CTV Facebook page, and follow @AmazingRaceCDA.

According to my friend and superfan @kurt_repchull on Twitter, there's a new question on the application this year of "Has there been an experience that has given you a new lease on life or a second chance at life?"

Sounds like another possible theme.

Why do you think decoy? They focus on the brand new racers thing in the description.... If it was decoy they just could have said nothing, no?

If there's "second chance teams"and this is a hybrid season, by second chance, we could get:

Strong teams eliminated early:
1. Darren/Kristen
2. Cormac/Nicole
3. Hamilton/Michaelia
4. Todd/Anna


Dominating teams that fell short:
1. Jet/Dave
2. Jody/Cory
3. Meghan/Natalie
4. Kenneth/Ryan

I don't follow TAR forums as well as I do Big Brother, so I can't speak for teams that fans want back.

Seeing as the overseas legs have been split between Asia and Latin America for all but one season, it'll probably be something like Japan and Peru this time around.

If BBCAN casts' attitudes toward old-school reality contestants are anything to go by, then the presence of certain racers can only increase viewership.

Jillian/Emmett wouldn't really fit a "second chance" theme because TAR4 was their second chance at Reality and if they came back, it'd be their third chance, basically.

There was a live facebook event with 2 producers of the show this morning.
No new information, they confirmed the theme this year was second chance on life.

One also let slip they could only choose 10 teams, confirming what we already guessed about having the 10 teams 11 legs formula

Weight loss heroes, Drug addicts, couple who fell in love with each other after their divorcees, transgender people, parent and adopted child, immigrants of course...

I wish they didn't limit themselves with stupid theme and casted just 10 best teams they could find.

This will be another TARCAN5/TARCAN6 with NO DRAMA, even ****tier tasks and 1 international leg.

There was a live facebook event with 2 producers of the show this morning.
No new information, they confirmed the theme this year was second chance on life.

One also let slip they could only choose 10 teams, confirming what we already guessed about having the 10 teams 11 legs formula

So teams could consist of cancer survivors, terrorist attack survivors, workplace accident survivors?

Yup! I mean it's great story wise, but I don't know how it will work out having 10- teams with sob stories....I guess we will see

TARC6 was already a little too "nice" and these were teams of "heroes." Though it wasn't as bad as the way Jon exaggeratedly described as being the nicest, most friendly cast ever or something like that.

I can only imagine how the show will go out of their way not to paint any of these "survivors" in a bad light. Like, I can see them guilting you into rooting for a cancer survivor or someone who got shot or something. Though TARUS showed that even a cancer survivor can still be completely unlikeable of course. Nothing to do with their health, just horrible personalities. I wonder if TARC will dare cast a team like that.

I'm just afraid that we will get 10 teams with sob stories, and that all the focus is on the team's personal stories/past drama and we loose the aspect of the race/game

Weight loss heroes, Drug addicts, couple who fell in love with each other after their divorcees, transgender people, parent and adopted child, immigrants of course...

I wish they didn't limit themselves with stupid theme and casted just 10 best teams they could find.

This will be another TARCAN5/TARCAN6 with NO DRAMA, even ****tier tasks and 1 international leg.
The team i am most looking forward is probably an immigrants i would love an north korean team, but with the cancer teams or drug addicts we saw how it all turned out horribly in TAR aND their personalities were terrible, aka Dave & The drug models

It didn't happen on Heroes' Edition and it won't on this one either.

Not season or really TAR-specific news, but producers John Brunton and Barbara Bowlby were just awarded the Order of Canada (a high civilian honour)

So applications closed Jan 2nd. I think the 2nd round stage is happening (going to major cities to do interviews) as a few producers/casting people have been posting from various cities other than Toronto.
