The Travel Channel has acquired the cable broadcast rights to the 12th, 13th, and 14th seasons of The Amazing Race.
The 12th season will air on Wednesdays at 8PM ET on The Travel Channel, beginning September 3rd. The network will then air the upcoming 13th and 14th seasons at a later date.
The 13th season premieres on CBS on Sunday, September 28th.
“The Amazing Race is an iconic American television series that really taps into what exploration is all about—not only the incredible riches that the world has to offer travelers—but the incredible transformative powers that travel brings about in people,” Patrick Younge, Travel Channel’s president and general manager, said in a statement. “The Amazing Race is simply the best travel reality format in the world, and it will nicely complement our stable of popular travel offerings such as Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, and Samantha Brown’s Passport series.”
The Travel Channel is the 3rd cable network to acquire rights to The Amazing Race. GSN currently holds the broadcast rights for first eight seasons, while Fox Reality Channel has the rights to air seasons 9 through 11.
