Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond returned just in time for Christmas with another instalment of The Grand Tour in December last year. Five months down the line, there’s still no sight of the Top Gear trio’s next adventure on Amazon Prime Video.
TV presenter and motor enthusiast Jeremy Clarkson has finally shared another status update for the next episode of The Grand Tour.
Clarkson returned with his long-suffering co-hosts in December 2020 for another globe-trotting misadventure, A Massive Hunt, this time exploring the idyllic coasts of Madagascar.
However, the fourth season of their Top Gear follow-up has hit several speed bumps in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Appearing on this Saturday’s episode of The Jonathan Ross show, Clarkson shed a little more light on when the series might be expected to return.
Addressing the current state of season four, he revealed: “We’ve got two more Grand Tours waiting in the wings.”
Unfortunately, the presenter remained tight-lipped about any potential release dates for the next episodes.
Season four kicked off with a journey across the Mekong River in Vietnam in December 2019, titled Seamen.
Originally intended to kick off a series of four 60-90 minute specials, A Massive Hunt faced numerous delays after producer Andy Wilman fell ill with COVID.
Thankfully, the team hastily made plans for an impromptu special filmed in Scotland, which is expected to arrive later this year.
As the lengthy hiatus carries on, his fans can see Jeremy Clarkson’s latest return to screens in his new show on Amazon, Clarkson’s Farm, arriving on June 11.
In his recent chat show appearance, the presenter also shared some of the highs and lows of working his own farm, Diddly Squat.
The presenter and amateur farmer recalled: “You get up in the morning and people shout at you.”
“You think you know what you’re doing. They just shouted at me, all rolled their eyes. Occasionally one of them would say, ‘I’m a bit disappointed…’ there was a lot of that.”
He also confirmed that Diddly Squat is so named as that’s how much money he’s been able to earn from his farming venture so far.
While it may be a bit of a change of pace from Clarkson and co.’s usual motorised madness, Clarkson’s Farm can hopefully tide fans over until The Grand Tour makes its way back on screens.
The Jonathan Ross show, Saturday 29th May, 9:30pm on ITV and ITV Hub.
The Grand Tour is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
