"The Amazing Race" Season 28 just finished last week with Dana Borriello and Matt Steffanina crowned as the glorious winners of the season. However, the fans who are eagerly looking forward to Season 29 of the race, may have to wait a bit longer.
According to Enstarz, CBS has left the next season of "The Amazing Race" off its Fall schedule. The channel announced its planned fall line-up of the shows recently and much to the disappointment of the fans, "The Amazing Race" is not included in the list.
The show's current time-slot on Friday nights has been given to the new show "McGyever" while its former Sunday night slot now belongs to "NCIS: Los Angeles." Currently, the only reality show on the network is "Survivor" that has a spot in the Fall schedule.
Though the show has been delayed, Season 29 is undoubtedly going to run sometime later this year as CBS has confirmed the show's renewal recently. As reported by Enstarz, in a press release, the network has announced some interesting plans for the upcoming season of the show.
"In addition to 'Training Day' and 'Doubt,' CBS will once again present year-round programming, rolling out new and established series throughout the season, including 'Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders,' which is winning its Wednesday time period in viewers, adults 18-49 and adults 25-54; the award-winning reality series 'The Amazing Race' and 'Undercover Boss;' and the new one-hour alternative series, 'Hunted' which was previously announced," the press release states.
Though no official premiere date of Season 29 has been announced either by CBS or the show's producers, the official website of "The Amazing Race" states that the casting for next season is under way and the show in under process, no matter when it is aired.
