Adventure Awaits: Race Across the World Premieres on April 10th with New Cast and Epic Challenge

Confirmed: BBC’s Race Across the World will return with new route and date

Awaited by many, the new season of Race Across the World is set to air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on April 10th. The BAFTA-winning series will follow five duos as they embark on a grueling journey across Eastern Asia, covering a distance of 15,000 kilometers through several countries.

Starting from northern Japan, the teams will navigate through six seas and eight borders, braving the volcanic ring of fire to reach the finish line on the beautiful Indonesian island of Lombok. The teams participating in this season include two mother and daughter duos, best friends, a married couple, and a brother and sister. Stripped of their smartphones, internet access, and bank cards, the competitors will be pushed to their limits both physically and emotionally.

Race Across the World is an 8-episode series produced by Studio Lambert for BBC One and BBC iPlayer. Commissioned by Catherine Catton and overseen by BBC Commissioning Editor Michael Jochnowitz, the show is executive produced by Tim Harcourt, Lucy Shepherd, and Stephen Day. Maria Kennedy serves as the line producer, with Kezia Walker as the production executive, Charlotte Woolley as the series editor, and Charlotte Jacobs as the series producer for Studio Lambert.

The first episode will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on April 10th at 9pm. Don’t miss out on this exciting new season!
