Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May are going to come back on Amazon Prime in October with the second season of The Grand Tour.
So far there are very few details about the big-budget effort, expected to come with novelties but – according to Drivetribe, still being just as expensive as before. During an interview with BBC’s The One Show, James May was his usual self in being mum about the show, other than stating the budget was “about the same.” “There’s a lot of travel involved. There’s a lot of crew involved,” May explained. “There’s a lot of tech involved, filming in 4K. But that’s boring stuff. It’s going to look largely the same, but we’ve moved it on a bit in a way that I can’t really tell you about yet because you’re the enemy and it’s secret!”
As to what changes are in store we’re probably just have to sit and wait until the second season goes live with its first episode on Amazon Prime in October. The show has had its own criticism just like it happened with the Top Gear format following their exit. For example the American was mostly panned, as was the growing old and tired of the running gag of killing celebrities. The issues might have to do with the fact that they were avoiding the BBC legal department… maybe now the terms are looser.
