Top Gear trio – Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May – landed on Amazon with a new car show after their exit from BBC. The Grand Tour’s first season had the gang in a massive tent shifting locations every episode. They opted to hunker down in a single location for the second season but retained many aspects of the first season. Amid rumors that the show would be canceled after the third season, Amazon has renewed The Grand Tour for a fourth season but with one major change.
Amazon has confirmed that there will indeed be a fourth season of The Grand Tour but it will be much different from what fans have come to expect. “Season four will see the guys ditch the tent to take on big adventure road trips,” the company said.
This means that there will likely be no timing runs on the show’s test track, no studio audience, no guest interviews, and none of the antics that the gang got up to in the tent. They will be out on the road, filming specials that have been much loved by their fans since their Top Gear days.
Jeremy Clarkson himself addressed the matter on Twitter, saying that The Grand Tour goes on. “Amazon has commissioned another series of nothing but road trip specials,” he said. The Grand Tour season three’s first episode is due January 18th, 2019. It will follow the old format, tent and all.
