'The Amazing Race' Season 29 Update: Show Officially Not Returning Until At Least Mid-Season, New Details On Premiere Date [VIDEO]
Unfortunately for fans, it won't be the news they were hoping for regarding season 29
Any fans of The Amazing Race who hoped that some of CBS' newer shows would be canceled and pulled from the schedule so that the reality competition series could then be placed back on the schedule are sure to now be disappointed.
Cbs has officially given full-season orders to Kevin Can Wait, MacGyver and Bull, which means the timeslots for those shows, unless the schedule is shuffled around, are off-limits for airing TAR, and it seems that makes it highly unlikely the show will get any random placement in the Fall season now.
The same announcement saw the network announcing the cancellation of two of its summer shows, BrainDead and American Gothic, meaning more than ever that there could be a home for the show during that season.
It's been speculated before that the Summer would be the best home for the show now, since CBS has not given it a home this Fall, or made any announcements as to when they would air it.
The lack of news on the show's 29th season having a premiere date has been frustrating for fans, since they are not only not able to watch the show, but have also had no notifications about the season overall, in terms of locations it would go to, twists it would feature, or members of the cast who would work together to try and win $1 million.
Many have shared their frustration on social media, tweeting show host Phil Keoghan for updates, something he has continually regretted not being able to provide, since he to is unaware of when the series will air the new season.
