'Amazing Race' production suspended over coronavirus concerns - CNN
Not to make light, but: an Arctic/Antarctica version?
Glad there is still one season ready to go
And glad they plan to continue production once the coronavirus fears are over. I can't decide if this is a good thing or a bad thing for those teams that got eliminated in the first couple episodes. They likely will just never get to go back. Maybe that's good that they won't have to sit around Elimination Station for a few weeks, but maybe they were looking forward to the no-stress vacation.
Depending on availability of the remaining racers, I was wondering if they’d have to just scrap what they have and start over.
Season 32 had been on CBS's schedule to start airing on May 20, but it's now been delayed to an unspecified date "later in 2020."
‘Amazing Race’ Season 32 Premiere Pushed Back at CBS – Variety
I guess they need it to fill a time slot this Fall since their scripted dramas won't be able to go into production in time.
Giving the show some respect as a lead show.
but in the meantime, phooey. I hope TAR Canada was able to shoot its season.
They haven’t started yet.
They closed casting the first week of January and were finalizing the final teams. When Amazing Race pulled the US teams out of the U.K. and sent them home, Bell announced they were still planning the route for TAR Canada and were supposed to start filming in late April. I haven’t heard anything about them starting. I would assume they definitely won’t leave Canada, if they do get to shoot.
The Amazing Race Australia is still scheduled to start shooting Race 5 in late June, but they’ve changed the route and it will be an all domestic route staying in Australia.
My guess is yeah, they are pushing this to the fall because of the potential lack of content. Another summer staple, is Big Brother, and wonder what will happen there? I bet the same thing, it'll get pushed to the fall.
Terrible news. The Survivor community will be ripe to watch a new similar competition reality show after this incredible season ends. TAR could have picked up a ton of new viewers during a time when so many are stuck at home starved for distraction.
You would think Big Brother could test everybody when they come in and then once a week, and the staff as well. Do lots of sanitizing. It's under as much control as any show could be.
It might depend on what stay at home order is in place at the time. That’s what killed Big Brother Canada this year. It’s a very nonessential business.
Is TAR Canada available for streaming in the US?
I don't think its on any of the US streaming services. It's a shame the US networks have locked out many of the foreign English language versions of some of these shows. They could be filling in the countless repeats with some new programming that many people would enjoy watching like the Canadian, UK, Australian, Irish, New Zealand and South African versions of Amazing Race, Masterchef, Dancing with the Stars, The Voice, Survivor etc...
There are places to find all 7 seasons of TAR Canada. Someone has put 4 seasons in somewhat decent quality on a single youtube channel. You can find most of the various versions somewhere on Youtube in various qualities.

dailymotion has some of them also
I did notice that Wipeout Canada was streaming via PlutoTV. I didn't notice any of the other reality shows streaming foreign versions.
For those that haven't watched TAR Canada, it's an excellent version. In some ways even better than the US version.
I don't really consider entertainment for those of us who have been forced to stay and home to be nonessential. If it can be done with no risk to the staff and contestants, why not do it?
I'm going to guess it's the staff that's the limiting factor. Theoretically you could quarantine the contestants before entering and then there's a contained environment for them. Staff, however, are going in and out and interacting with families, and are in close contact with each other and contestants.
