From a media release:
The finish line is in sight! With only two exciting episodes left to go for Canadaâ€™s #1 summer series THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, CTV announced today that Season 2 will conclude with a two-hour special event from 8-10 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday, Sept. 21. First, the hotly anticipated Season 2 finale will air in a special Sunday night timeslot on CTV and CTV GO. Then, immediately following the exhilarating finish is the fan-favourite, one-hour after-show special, AFTER THE RACE. Shot live and hosted by TSNâ€™s James Duthie (@tsnjamesduthie), AFTER THE RACE reunites all 11 teams to re-live their most memorable moments, while also giving viewers a look at the exclusive first chat with the finalists and the newly crowned winners, just minutes after Canada learns who wins the Race. Produced in front of a live studio audience from CTVâ€™s headquarters in Toronto, this is THE AMAZING RACE CANADAâ€™s second after-show special of the season, following the popular midseason special in August.
â€œThis season of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA is like a great summer sport,â€ said Duthie. â€œIt has drama, the full spectrum of emotion, and weâ€™ve seen brilliant strategy, pure luck, and absolute blunders. AFTER THE RACE will tackle the hard-hitting questions and the moments that left us talking all summer long.â€
â€œViewers can look forward to an incredible THE AMAZING RACE CANADA finale,â€ said Phil King, President â€“ CTV, Sports, and Entertainment Programming. â€œThen, AFTER THE RACE breaks down the finale â€“ and season â€“ with all 11 teams, and helps answer the questions that viewers at home might be thinking.â€
Extending the season finale into a two-hour event, AFTER THE RACE host Duthie goes beyond the mat and talks to teams about the most unforgettable moments, the toughest challenges, and strategies. And like the midseason edition, questions and comments will also come from audience members and fans pulled via Twitter and Facebook, who use the hashtag #AfterTheRace. Viewers can also expect a special appearance from host Jon Montgomery and more in this jam-packed special.
