The show is officially cancelled. 10 just posted their "year in review" and there is absolutely no mention of TAR or any of their shows that aired in Q3 and Q4 2022, with the exception of The Masked Singer. Beau has also removed the "register for interest" link from his Instagram.

Rest easy, Network 10 TAR.

While I understand the reasoning from what you all explained, it saddens me SO MUCH to lose any of our TAR franchises.

Do you all think a change in hosts would have made a difference?

And is there ANY hope it could be picked up by others?

Thanks for all the updates Gamer....heartbreaking .

This is awful news, but it's hardly unexpected. The ratings for TAR Australia 6 were awful, no show was gunna be renewed on those figures.

As for maybe the show would do better with Beau as host, I don't think it would of really made a difference. Every reality show on Network 10 in 2022 has pretty much failed this year, except for Australian Survivor and The Masked Singer, with each of those failed shows having a different Host, so I don't think Beau as Host was a problem for viewers...

Word on the street:

Don't give up.

There are numerous budget and financial things to address to make this viable.

BUT...not impossible and not without hope. 


Hang tough!

Very interesting! Let's not give up hope for TAR Australia just yet!

Hopeful news from 10. I suspected it wasn't a complete cancellation and more a need to look for a redirection.

They would do well to look at returning the cast to a normal number of 12 teams across 12 episodes. I think they've lost the way a bit with the massive 20 teams, the 21-24 episodes, the Sabotage-Save, the intruder teams, all of that just isn't in keeping with the tradition of the race. What we want to see is ordinary Australians from all age groups, ethnicities, physicalities and walks of life, competing in interesting challenges in interesting places. The most they should look to include is a fast forward or two, and a yield/u-turn or two.

Here's hoping they schedule it in for late-2023 or early-2024.
