It’s going to be another very long wait for “Amazing Race” fans when it comes to new episodes of the hit CBS reality competition series.

According to a CBS press release, the show will be making a return to the network in the Midseason, much like the past two seasons before it. However, those hoping it would once again air in January will have to wait a few more months, as the series won’t be returning to air until May 22, 2019.

Spoiler Alert: Details about who wins Season 31 of “The Amazing Race”​ follow.

The show is slated to take over “Survivor’s” spot in the lineup when Season 38 wraps, meaning it will air on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. EST. It previously held this slot in Season 30 (though it aired in January and February then), and found renewed success after years of declining ratings.

Season 31, in particular, is set to be an intensely competitive one, which will feature favorite teams from past seasons of “The Amazing Race” returning for another chance at the $1 million prize. However, they will also face off against favorites from CBS’ other hit shows, “Big Brother” and “Survivor” as well.

As was revealed previously, the cast will consist of three “Big Brother” pairs, three “Survivor” teams and five “Amazing Race” favorites. In the end, it appears the prior knowledge of how “Amazing Race” works was a benefit for the teams who previously appeared on the show, as the final three who were spotted filming the finale in Detroit over the Summer were all former “TAR” contestants.

Despite initially stating he thought the show would return in early 2019, host Phil Keoghan expressed excitement at the show’s return on Twitter.

“A lot of successful shows @CBS but we’re officially back! I guess good things come to those who wait…really can’t wait to share #AmazingRace with you in May…the month of flowers and named for Maia, the Greek goddess of fertility,” he wrote.
