HaMerotz LaMillion 9 is the ninth installment of the reality television show, HaMerotz LaMillion, the Israeli version of The Amazing Race.

Production[]

During the finale press of the previous season, host Ron Shahar said that due to the COVID-19 pandemic production for a subsequent season would happen after the countries to which the show would visit had sufficient vaccinated populations.[1] Shahar reiterated that filming for a new season would happen as soon as possible in an interview after his elimination from The Singer in the Mask a year later.[2]

In October 2022, Channel 13 announced that it would be producing a local version of Peking Express instead of new seasons of HaMerotz LaMillion due to high production costs,[3][4] with Peking Express estimated to cost 1.1 million shekels per episode rather than 1.5 million shekels for each episode of HaMerotz LaMillion.[5]

On 11 November 2022, Channel 12 announced that it had acquired the rights to HaMerotz LaMillion and would be filming a new season in 2023.[6] On 12 March 2023, Yehuda Levi was announced as the new host of HaMerotz LaMillion.[7]
