I don't have much more info than y'all do.  I think previous plans could be altered.

But I do know we are approaching a YEAR since this started and could easily be 18+ months before they can film. Who knows what will happen? Will the cast be available? Want to continue?  Are the countries they hoped to visit now on lockdown? What countries would welcome us? WIll there ever be self driving ? Will all vehicles/taxis etc be provided? SO many variables.

I am eager to seee how the TAR AUstralia season plays out.

I think our route will be completely reformatted. Too many places are now off-limits.

I think the choices are to continue with same cast (IF AVAILABLE) starting with the next leg.

If not, they can add this remaining cast into the upcoming say... next three races.

There are always alternatives.

Right now we  pretty much KNOW nothing except TPTB want TAR to continue.

So speculate. But please have some reasonably info to base it on. WISHLIST routes go to that thread.

The US has already fallen behind its vaccination plan and the EU says it's gonna be September before everyone there has it so we might be looking more at Fall filming.

The US military general in charge of overseeing COVID-19 vaccine distribution has said this week, thatís return to near normalcy is only possible with a perfect vaccination program in the US. And that would be miraculous. Remember Murphyís law. And remember Murphy was an optimist.

Spoilers removed


 I think if/when the reason resumes with the same cast, this will be one of the most interesting seasons to watch from an inter-team dynamic to seeing how they shift from the first few episodes, to the later episodes. It would make for fascinating television, in my opinion. All we'd need to do is make sure the editors/producers lean into this and don't just gloss over it.

I've been watching since TAR 13 and one think I know about the Amazing Race is that the producers will overplay it to the point of annoyance.

Honestly... it will be wierd.. I kind of wish they start again with new teams (or 2-3 teams max of tar33 on the next 2-3 races) because like you said it will change everything. Teams will have the time to think about what worked, what didn't, and they will know what to work on and how to be better.
Idk I just think it would be easier to recast the whole thing.

GUYS.

ONE MORE TIME.

NO 33 SPOILERS ARE ALLOWED.

Speculation and Discussion on the future are allowed.

KNOWN SPOILERS ARE BEING WITHHELD TO PREVENT ANY POSSIBLE INTERFERENCE WITH RESUMING THE RACE.

Info shared by production in the media is okay.

Oooh yeah, that could really make for a special season! In a positive sense, hopefully.
I hope they do manage to get the same teams. Or if someone drops out, maybe let a team that got eliminated on the last filmed leg, continue racing? Kinda like when Dave & Connor withdrew in TAR22, or how Zev & Justin's lost passports allowed Maria & Tiffany to continue racing when they should've been eliminated.

Season 20 didnít go to Tokyo

Season 26 went to Tokyo for a leg and somewhere else for a second leg (I forgot where)

So yeah, they could get two legs out of Kyoto or Osaka easily without re-treading anything.

Do y'all think they'd go to Poland now given the political situation?

Just general democratic backsliding. I also wouldnít be surprised if they miss India and/or Brazil for the same reason. Was just curious because thereís a lot of Central Europe theyíve missed.

Israel is on track to have everyone vaccinated for COVID by the beginning of Q2. Could we finally get a visit? Especially now that theyíve normalized relationships with a lot of their neighbors, which makes traveling easier
