CBS has revealed scheduling plans for its upcoming season 32 of reality show ‘The Amazing Race’ and the season finale of ‘Survivor’.
The broadcaster will air a three-hour season finale for ‘Survivor: Winners at War’. This is the 40th season of the show.
The reality competition series, which filmed last summer in Fiji, features twenty returning winners from past Survivor seasons competing for a $2M prize. Following the 39-day battle, host Jeff Probst will crown the winner. During the finale, Probst will virtually connect with all 20 players by video to discuss the highlights of the season.
It will be release on May 13 at 8PM to 11PM. Prior to the finale, CBS will air a two-hour penultimate episode on May 6.
A week later, on May 20, CBS will debut the 32nd season of The Amazing Race. The show, which was filmed at the back end of 2019, will see 11 new teams compete in destinations across Trinidad and Tobago, France, Germany, Kazakhstan and Brazil. Host Phil Keoghan will kick off the show from the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. It comes after the 31st season of the show aired between April and June 2019.
The Amazing Race will assume its regular slot of Wednesday at 8PM on May 27.
This comes after the 33rd season of The Amazing Race was struck by the COVID-19 crisis. Filming had started earlier this year in the UK before producers had to send the teams home in February.
Survivor is produced by S.E.G. Holdco with Mark Burnett, Jeff Probst, Matt VanWagenen, Jesse Jensen and Kahaia Pearson as executive producers.
The Amazing Race is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Worldrace Productions in association with ABC Studios and Amazing Race Productions. Jerry Bruckheimer, Bertram van Munster, Jonathan Littman, Elise Doganieri, Mark Vertullo and Phil Keoghan are executive producers.
“When Survivor wraps one of its best seasons ever in May, we’re excited to schedule another signature reality series, The Amazing Race, to step seamlessly into the time period,” said Noriko Kelley, Executive Vice President, Program Planning & Scheduling, of CBS Entertainment.
