The Amazing Race season 32, filmed before the COVID-19 pandemic, premieres Oct. 14 at 9 p.m. on CBS. The new season kicks off from the legendary Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The Amazing Race is sending 11 teams around the globe. Each team is comprised of two people who have a pre-existing relationship with one another.
At every destination, the teams will have to compete in a series of challenges, both physical and mental. When the challenges have been completed, the teams will then learn their next destination.
