The Amazing Race is returning to CBS for yet another trip around the world! Eleven more teams of two have left home with only backpacks, a sense of adventure, and a hunger for the million-dollar prize.

Is Coronavirus Affecting The Amazing Race?
Filming has halted for the Emmy-winning reality series only a couple of weeks into production. CBS has temporarily suspended the race due to worldwide cases of the coronavirus, which have been growing substantially over the past couple of weeks.
“Due to increased concerns and uncertainty regarding the coronavirus around the world, CBS and the producers of ‘The Amazing Race’ have taken the precautionary measure of temporarily suspending production on the 33rd season of the series,” a CBS spokesperson told Variety.
“All contestants and production staff are in the process of returning home,” they went on to say. “At this time, no Racers or anyone on the production team traveling with them have contracted the virus, or shown symptoms, and we are not aware of anyone being exposed to it. Out of an abundance of caution, everyone involved in the show will continue to be monitored when they return home. The health and well-being of the Racers and the production team are our top priorities.”
