There hasn’t been much in terms of an update about the next episode of The Grand Tour, apart from an image that Jeremy Clarkson uploaded on social media of the set from Norway, sporting a yellow Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX and a Subaru Impreza WRX STI.
Richard Hammond has fortunately given us an update that they’ve finished shooting the next Grand Tour Episode and it seems like we won’t have to wait long before the special is aired on Amazon Prime.
Hammond broke the news while speaking to RadioTimes.com for his new comedy science show called ‘Brain Reaction’. He said: “We’ve already filmed one – we’re not long back from that.
“We’re ready to go off and do another, and they are huge missions to go and do,” he continued. “Lockdown was a bit tricky for that, but I think the great thing is I’ve managed to keep busy with other stuff, and we’ll continue to do that.
“The joy for me 30 odd years into a broadcasting career, I’m able to do shows at all ends of the spectrum whether being massively costly, complicated, big ones or smaller, quicker, more light and nimble. So they’re all great fun to make.
“I’ve been lucky enough to sort of cherry pick and do the shows I really want to do. So you’ll never see me there doing something I’m not really engaged in. They’re all things I want to make.”
While Hammond has been clever enough to not give more hints about the next episode, he has mentioned that they can now expect to film outside the UK since the pandemic lockdown restrictions have eased.
“My passport can come out of my desk drawer again,” he teased. “It’s been locked away like 25 years! Yes, things are easing up and TV and entertainment certainly has a role to play right now. I think anything you can escape into we’re all glad for.” He stated.
We are very excited about the upcoming Grand Tour Special and can’t wait to hear more about it. What makes us happier though is that the trio can soon get back to exploring farther lands.
