TARís fate is tied into the fact that both Paramount/CBS and Disney has stakes in airing and syndication of the show. See for example, how the 10 network in Australia is having to negotiate with Disney for a CBS show even though CBS now wholly owns 10.

Given that MTVís The Real World has moved from its longtime cable home on MTV to Facebook Watch for its 33rd season in Atlanta, I wouldnít rule out that possibility but having a sufficient budget and quality casting would be an issue. Of course, CBS could choose to go that route with CBS All Access, but Iím not sure the subscriber base is there yet for it to be considered.
