Clarkson Confirms More Grand Tours

Wed 16th Jan 2019

Amazon’s The Grand Tour will continue for a further two series after the show’s host, Jeremy Clarkson, put to bed rumours that the show was to be cancelled.

“You've got us for a few more years yet," Clarkson said.

"We were signed up to Amazon to do three seasons and everybody said 'They're going to do four', but we were only asked to do three.

"We are still working hard on (season) three and when that's over we will turn our attention to what four, five and however many more there are going forward will be like.

"We are delighted to say Amazon have asked us to do more. When we finished three we talked to Amazon and they said, 'Oh no we'd be delighted'.

"We love Amazon and they seem to love us so consequently you've got us for a few more years yet."

The first episode of series three premiered this week and Clarkson had previously indicated that the traditional studio format had been dumped, with one-off specials planned for the next two years. This season will see 12 episodes taking in driving challenges across the globe, including visits to Detroit, Mongolia, Sweden, China, France and George.

Speaking at the Premiere, Clarkson’s co-host Richard Hammond said: “We looked at what people loved, what bits people liked the most and it turns out the bits people like the most are the big adventures, us three messing about in Mongolia, Colombia, China or wherever.”
