We have all been sitting patiently, waiting for CBS to announce the premiere date for The Amazing Race Season 29. I mean, the actual season has been recorded and CBS has been holding off on giving us a new season of The Amazing Race 2016! That has finally changed, as CBS finally announced The Amazing Race Season 29 premiere date, so get the details below in our The Amazing Race 2016 spoilers!
I was shocked when I heard that The Amazing Race was not in the fall lineup for CBS. Instead, they had MacGyver airing on Friday nights in it’s spot. It was said to be a midseason fill-in, as new shows get cancelled and schedules have to be flipped around. Not the case here, as MacGyver must be doing well for CBS, as it is still on the air and no Amazing Race 2016 yet!
Well, CBS has announced the winter and spring schedule and we finally get The Amazing Race back in our lives, but it is going to be a while still! According to the CBS press release:
The multi-Emmy Award-winning reality series The Amazing Race returns on Friday, April 21 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT), with a two-hour premiere one week after the season finale of MacGyver, then moving to its regular Friday (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) time period on April 28.”
So, they are waiting until MacGyver is done to bring it back. There are no talks of a Season 30 for The Amazing Race and this would be a very late start to the show, as it would run over and probably end right before Big Brother starts. Maybe that was their plan? Not sure, but things are definitely not looking good for The Amazing Race sticking around very much longer on CBS!
The Amazing Race Season 29 premieres Friday, April 21, 2017, at 8/7c on CBS!
