There hasn't been much released about the upcoming 29th season of The Amazing Race beyond a premiere date set for April, but that doesn't mean fans aren't eager for any information they can get their hands on when it comes to the popular show.
Host Phil Keoghan has had fans tweeting with him for a while now, asking about anything he can give them regarding the show, and while he has remained tight-lipped about the new season, he seemed to be more than willing to share the identities of some potential future teams on seasons 30 and 31, should the series be renewed for them by CBS.
Keoghan was present at a recent casting call in San Francisco, and shared replies to tweets sent by eager fans who hoped they would later be a part of the show in a new season, as well as retweeted some of those who expressed hope that they would be able to see him again.

"@PhilKeoghan Thanks for making our dream come true & for the inspiring talk,. Hope to see you on the starting line for season 30! Team #228," another wrote, to which Keoghan replied, "Ahhh #AmazingRace fans... see you April 21st for #TAR29."
Though there's no way to know if these teams would potentially be cast for Season 30 or beyond, it is a bigger glimpse at teams than has been provided for season 29, which has so far continued to be kept under wraps, and likely will stay so until it is closer to the new season's premiere.
Though the show has not actually confirmed it, it has been rumored that the new season would initially consist of single racers all competing and completing a starting line task, before pairing off in a schoolyard pick to form the teams that would then travel the world together in the hopes of winning the $1 million prize.
The premise is similar to the one that half of the teams from season 26 consisted of, which saw teams in established relationships compete against those who were set up on blind dates by producers. While no love connections seemed to form between the blind date teams, the move was successful on the show's part in that the final three teams all consisted of ones matched by producers.
The Amazing Race season 29 premieres April 21 on CBS.
