The three former Top Gear hosts will debut their new car show, The Grand Tour, on November 18. The show will be available exclusively on Amazon's streaming service. New episodes will be released every Friday over the span of 12 weeks.
Clarkson, Hammond & May are back
Amazon is by most accounts the second largest player in the streaming market after Netflix. They began producing original TV series in 2014 and later movies. The next milestone is a car show by the three former Top Gear hosts.
The show 'The Grand Tour' with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will take viewers around the world in a large mobile tent where an audience is invited. The three hosts have already been filming in Johannesburg and will travel to California later this month.
- “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,” said Jay Marine, Vice President for Amazon Prime Video EU. “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.”
The first episode will debut online for streaming on November 18. New episodes will be released every Friday over the span of 12 weeks. An agreement for 36 episodes, three seasons, has been signed.
Amazon Video is available in the US, the UK, Germany, Austria and Japan. Select TV series and movies are already available in 4K and HDR quality on Amazon but it is not clear if The Grand Tour will be available in the highest possible quality.
You can watch Amazon Video on the company's own Fire TV box and Fire TV Stick, PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox 360 and One, Wii and Wii U, Smart TVs from several manufacturers, iOS and Android, as well as select Blu-ray players.
