Fans of 'The Amazing Race' are waiting for Season 29 of the CBS reality show to debut soon but it looks like they would have to wait until next year as the network has reportedly shelved the series till summer 2017.
'The Amazing Race,' Season 29 can get delayed further as CBS might be thinking of stretching the show into 2017, reports Enstarz. According to the news outlet, the wait is surely going to be unbearable for the fans but it may not be that bad too. CBS has not made any announcement regarding the return of Season 29 despite the fact that it has been completely filmed and is ready to air. The Fall TV lineup of the network did not mention anything about the show and it does not look like any announcement will be made in near future.
Therefore, speculations about Season 29 premiere are swirling around in great number and sources are guessing hard about possible timeslots for 'The Amazing Race,' Season 29. For ex, four different timeslots have been conjectured by Carter Matt, which says that these are the only ones that fit with the schedule of the network, which seems super occupied with other shows at present.
It says that Friday 8:00 p.m. slot would be a suitable choice once the first season of the action adventure series 'MacGyver' gets over or it gets moved to a different slot. Wednesday, 10:00 p.m. slot would also be available once the second season of 'Code Black' wraps up, which is expected to be in February. However, it could displace 'Criminal Minds.' Saturdays too figure into the calculations but it is the darkest timeline. Lastly, summer 2017 comes into the picture and it seems the most conducive slot as the schedule of the network is jam-packed this year.
It is worth mentioning here that 'The Amazing Race' is one of the most popular reality shows on TV and enjoys a huge fanbase as viewers love to watch teams as they race around the world, competing for the $1 million prize money. It has enjoyed a successful run ever since it first aired in 2001 in the United States.
