CBC Renews Race Against the Tide


The sand sculpture competition series Race Against the Tide has been renewed for a third season by CBC in Canada.

Filmed on New Brunswick’s New River Beach on the Bay of Fundy, the summer hit will premiere its new season on CBC in 2023. For season three, the show introduces an all-new format, with more world-class competitors.

Returning as host this season is Maestro Fresh We, who will be joined by returning judges Karen Fralich and Rusty Croft.

“The wild success of Race Against the Tide is a testament to the continued rising interest into specialized art forms and story worlds,” said executive producer and marblemedia co-CEO, Matt Hornburg. “Audiences viewing habits are constantly changing, and as producers, we must pivot and change with them. Season three will see a spectacular new format and new cast of characters that will reinvigorate our audiences’ adoration for this original series.”

“We’re excited to head back to the beautiful Bay of Fundy with Wes, Karen and Rusty for a new season of Race Against the Tide,” said Jennifer Dettman, executive director of unscripted content at CBC. “The third season promises to be the most competitive one yet, and we’re looking forward to watching it play out with viewers across Canada next year.”
