The Amazing Race has been postponed for the millionth time now, but there is some good news too. Read on to know when The Amazing Race Season 32 will release and what new shows will be releasing in the interim.
The Amazing Race has been in the pipeline with its 32nd season but a date of release has been turning into quite a struggle. The fans of the travel competition have been left hanging since May 2020, which is when the new season was first supposed to air, according to CBS.
- What season 32 looks like
- Two shows while we wait for season 32
- What do we expect from Game On and Tough as Nails?
Considering that some of its fans are younger than the show is, we know that it is here to stay. But when will the new season hit our screens, and what exactly is the holdup?
What does The Amazing Race Season 32 look like?
The show has two teams competing for $1 million. It takes them around the world to compete in various physical challenges. The Amazing Race started back in 2000 and is admired by a global audience for its true representation of what leadership, team unity, and a bit of scripted television look like.
Well, firstly, season 32 of The Amazing Race has been shooting since December 2018. So, despite the pandemic halting the entire entertainment industry, it is not the reason for the show’s delay.
The Amazing Race went into production in 2018 and it can be programmed into CBS’ schedule any time. What is causing a delay is the fact that CBS, along with other networks, is scrambling to come up with a fall-schedule better than its competitors.
The Amazing Race, one of the best reality shows in the world, and also an Emmy-winning one, is clearly worthy of being in the highly competitive fall-schedule.
Two new shows in the meantime
Though it looks like The Amazing Race will not be gracing our screens anytime before the fall of 2020-21, CBS is gifting us with two other reality shows to be content with.
Game On and Tough as Nails are the new unscripted series by CBS that will premiere instead. Game On, based on the popular British reality show A League of Their Ow, will feature two teams of three contestants each.
Hosted by tennis champion Venus Williams and comedians Bobby Lee and Ian Karmel, it will also feature a rotating bunch of celebrity hosts belonging to the entertainment and sports industry. The contestants will be pitted against each other in a round of physical challenges, trivia, and field competition.
Tough as Nails is taking the “reality” tag a bit too seriously. It is a competition-based series that will put its contestants in real-world job sites to test their strength, endurance, and mental toughness.
What should we expect?
While Game On brings in the fun element by teams of two competing against each other in a series of comic games, Tough as Nails is a platform for hardworking Americans who face everyday challenges in the job world.
While CBS distracts its audience with these new shows, The Amazing Race season 33’s production is also underway. So, not only do we have one, but two seasons to look forward to.
Now, if that isn’t the best news to leave you with, nothing will be.
