Even though CBS announced that they've green lit a thirteenth season of The Amazing Race
, that doesn't mean you're going to see it any time soon. Since, prior to the writers' strike, CBS had planned on only airing one edition of The Amazing Race
in the 2007-2008 TV season, the late call for The Amazing Race 13
means that we won't be seeing the next season until late Spring, at the earliest. The Amazing Race
, given the incredible amount of footage taken, is an arduous series to edit. And, season 13 hasn't even started filming.
Semi-final casting on The Amazing Race
may still be going on. The final cast isn't set to be decided upon until February. It's been stated that CBS and The Amazing Race
team have been scouting locations this month. By the way, I want that job. Amazing Race
Location Scout. "Hmm, let's give Italy another look." It is expected that filming will not begin until March or April, and after that, who knows? I'm not all that familiar with Race's post-production schedule.
This all means that if you were still waiting to hear from The Amazing Race
about your application, I'm sorry to say you didn't cut it. There's always next year.
The Amazing Race 13 is expected to film in the spring of 2008. For more information, visit the CBS website.
