“The three lads- no tent, no race track, on conversational corner. What the. This is also looking like my last year with Amazon,” one commenter said. Another says: “Since when do two episodes make a season? It’s not even a mini-series.
‘I fear this the end… the fat lady is warming up.”
So in reply to this, I set myself a challenge to find every piece of evidence there is to prove The Grand Tour is coming back, and is not ending.
Exhibit A, ladies and gentlemen: A post from executive producer Andy Wilman confirming that the film crew will be working with them for another two years.
At the time of posting, another two years would in fact result in another three seasons on top of the original three. There are lots of fans who are going to be very happy with that.
The second piece of evidence came from Jeremy Clarkson himself, who seems very happy to continue The Grand Tour for years to come:
‘We were signed up by Amazon to do three seasons and everyone was like, “They’re going to do four,” but we were only asked to do three,’ Clarkson said. ‘We’re delighted to say Amazon have asked us to do more.
‘Whenever anyone would say, “Oh you’re not telling us because its not happening.” No, we can’t tell you because we hadn’t gotten round to doing three. When we finished three we talked to Amazon and they said, “Oh no we’d be delighted,” and they seemed to love us so consequently you’ve got us for a few more years yet.’
I’m still scouring the internet for evidence and this page will be updated as I go, so if you have any leads, leave them in the comments below. Until then, maybe bookmark this page or sign up to our email (go to the bottom of the page) and I’ll keep you in the loop!
It’s fair to say already, despite Season 4 not even out yet, the team aren’t giving any signs of slowing own. They may only have two episodes on the way, but we’re about to be inundated with content from Clarkson, Hammond and May. Let’s pull our socks up and get watching. Let’s show Amazon just how much we want to see these three idiots being stupid on four (or two or three) wheels.
