:confused::confused::confused: The Grand Tour To Be Dropped By Amazon After Season 3?


Amazon has no plans to extend The Grand Tour’s to a fourth season, according to a report by the The Daily Mail.


When Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May signed with Amazon in 2015, their contract was for three seasons and 36 episodes. Two successful seasons have aired so far, but it doesn’t appear like Amazon will renew their contract.

The British tabloid reports that Clarkson has already lined up a new job as the presenter of a revamped ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’ when The Grand Tour’s run comes to an end . Hammond, May, and the rest of The Grand Tour crew, though, may have to look elsewhere for employment.

“There is nothing to suggest they are going to do another one. No one has signed anything and employees are wondering where everyone will go once filming wraps,” a source familiar with the issue claims.

Clarkson declined to comment on the reports, while The Grand Tour producer Andy Wilman simply said the crew “is focusing on series three at the moment.”

The Grand Tour got off to a shaky start when it first aired in late 2016 due to a number of skits which quickly grew old, including ‘The American’ and the ‘Celebrity Brain Crash’. With a renewed focus, The Grand Tour hit its stride in the recently-concluded second season, ditching these elements and cementing its place as the world’s best motoring show.

There's been conjecture for a few years that the BBC may re-hire Clarkson, May and Hammond back to TG someday.

Clarkson was fired but conspicuously not black listed from the BBC re-hiring terminal. And it does not appear Matt LeBlanc is looking at any longterm role on the reboot. I wouldn't be surprised if they don't revamp the show as a TG3.0 series in a few years.

Or.... Netflix wanted in on it the first time.

I liked it. Turning abandoned Detroit into a muscle car them park was hilarious and that Maclaren Senna was insane. 4 sec faster than a the Huracan Performante?!?!? Wow.

I also like how they addressed abandoning segments like Celebrity brain crash..

"Who wants to see Celebrity brain crash or the Maclaren Senna round our track?" Now that's how you turn off a bit.
