Amazon announced today that former Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May will be launching their new series The Grand Tour this November. Following in the footsteps of the show that made them household names to many, The Grand Tour will find the three traveling the world and driving very fast in a variety of amazing vehicles. Now we know a few more details about the series, which is set to launch November 18, exclusively on Amazon Prime.
The Grand Tour will post new episodes to Amazon Prime on a weekly basis beginning November 18. In addition to the scenic vistas and the crazy motoring stunts, The Grand Tour will feature segments recorded with an audience inside a giant traveling tent. So far Clarkson, Hammond, and May have taken the tent to Johannesburg, they’re filming in California later this month, and the production will announce future locations in the months to come.
In a press release, Jay Marine, Vice President of Amazon Prime Video EU, said:
Customers have been desperate to find out when they can watch their favorite team back on screen, so we are very excited to announce the launch date of one of the most globally anticipated shows of 2016. The guys have been having a blast filming the show around the world and we can’t wait for fans to see it weekly beginning November 18, only on Amazon Prime Video.
Amazon Prime subscribers will be able to stream The Grand Tour via the Amazon Video app or on compatible devices such as Amazon Fire TV. Fans eager to keep up with all the latest on The Grand Tour should be sure to bookmark www.amazon.com/thegrandtour.
First premiering in 2002, the British hit Top Gear has run for 23 series and nearly 200 episodes. Sadly, only a handful of those are currently available streaming in the States. Both Netflix and Hulu have five seasons available, but that’s barely a drop in the bucket. Either way, fans will no doubt be eager to see the return of Clarkson, Hammond, and May’s automotive antics this November.
