The Seven Network has officially renewed its reality adventure game show The Amazing Race Australia, announcing that casting for the second season was now underway.
The local adaptation of the hit international format, which follows teams of two around the country and across the world, is searching for new contestants with applications for the second season now open on the official website.
"We've been thrilled with the sheer scale and quality of the first series of The Amazing Race Australia," says Seven's head of production Brad Lyons.
"And we can't wait to see the diverse bunch of Aussies who apply for the second series of the Race."
The renewal follows a respectable ratings performance since its debut in May. The series has averaged 1.137 million viewers in its 8:30pm Monday timeslot: it has consistently won in total people, as well as dominating among advertiser-preferred 16-39, 18-49 and 25-54 age groups.
Seven has not yet confirmed whether host Grant Bowler will return for the second season.
