Clarkson and crew have stated that this series will be taken a slightly different direction than ‘Top Gear’ but judging by the trailers we’ve seen, the show will still feature plenty of hijinx that fans of the crew’s original show grew to know and love.
There was a bit of a rocky fallout between Clarkson and the BBC, which has led to Amazon inking a massive deal with ‘Top Gear’ crew for a new series. The current version of the BBC show with new hosts has been floundering a bit, as the show’s new hosts just haven’t been able to capture the Jeremy Clarkson magic.
‘The Grand Tour’ has been signed for a multi-year deal with Amazon, so fans don’t have to worry about the show disappearing too soon after the first season. It will be interesting to see what this does for Amazon Prime membership numbers as well, as excitement for the show has been building rapidly over the past year.
