I would assume they would try to keep the teams they had cast for TARC8, but have to make some replacements if some of the original starters are no longer able to go.

Thought I'd dust off this thread by posting.

I'm wondering if filming could potentially be done this summer? TAR Australia 5 has shown that it's feasible. Then again, Australia and Canada have handled their respective covid situations differently, so I imagine it would be harder to film in Canada.

Then again AGAIN, I think it could be possible. If production starts in June, and all contestants quarantine for two weeks before filming (as was done in Australia), then I think we might have a chance. Especially if production insists on not flying. They could (in theory) just travel by private bus, which would be easier if the race precedes in a coast-to-coast fashion (for example, starting line in Vancouver and traveling across Canada via private bus before ending on the east coast somewhere).

What say you all? Can Canada take a page out of the Aussies' book?

I thought season 8 is supposed to be filmed in April/May as usual, was I wrong?

Summer filming would make no sense cause they would had to wait 1 year to air it in next summer 2022 anyway. I do not think they are planning to change airing schedule.

It could be filmed only in Canada just like the last season but with COVID safety guidelines (similarly to Australia).

I also was thinking about that, they could really minimize the flights and do a lot of self driving / private bus / shuttle cars.
I think it's possible! They could film the whole of May with a July premiere!

I guess it will depends on how the situation is in April! It needs to be better than now..

Yes, absolutely. I'm not sure if the Atlantic Bubble is still going on, but I think most of Ontario is still on lockdown. Things could definitely change by late spring. I was also thinking that since indigenous communities might be particularly at risk, they might avoid the north all together (with possible exceptions of only visiting national parks, like having a whole leg in Nahanni or Kluane, which I actually think would be a fascinating leg).
