The Amazing Race is back! The adventure reality show returns on Oct. 14 on CBS, with 11 teams racing around the world for a $1 million prize.
Season 32 was filmed prior to the global outbreak of the coronavirus. The race starts at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, and the teams’ first destination is Trinidad and Tobago. Along the route, the pairs of competitors will travel to France, Germany, Kazakhstan, Brazil and more.
Bertram van Munster, co-creator and executive producer of The Amazing Race, reflected on the new season in light of the current pandemic in a statement on Tuesday. In February, the show halted production on the 33rd cycle of the globe-trotting reality competition series due to the coronavirus.
“Elise and I created The Amazing Race 20 years ago as a way to bring the expansive beauty of the world into audiences’ living rooms in an exciting way,” the statement reads. “This year has been a challenge for everyone, and we hope this season, during which Race will reach the remarkable milestone of one million miles traveled around the world, helps satisfy viewers’ wanderlust. We look forward to when we can all travel again!”
