Seven is fastracking the new series of The Amazing Race.
Season 17 will premiere 8:30pm Thursday September 30th.
It begins with a 90 minute premiere episode to be followed by the last-ever episode of Ghost Whisperer.
Travelling 32,000 miles and covering four continents and thirty cities, this season’s Racers include newly dating couples, an Internet entertainer and a recently reunited mother/daughter team, all looking to win the Amazing Race.
This is a strategic move by Seven, especially after some seasons have been late on arrival. With an Aussie series in pre-production, it’s clearly in the network’s interests to keep the brand buoyant.
The season premieres in the US on September 26th.
Last team to check in may be eliminated.
