Is The Grand Tour Over? Jeremy Clarkson Confirms Future Of The Car Show


We are asked this question many times. Is The Grand Tour over? Is it coming to an end? Here’s the simple answer: no.

The Grand Tour has been running on Amazon Prime Video for almost five years now, and with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May now turning a creative corner and focussing entirely on special episodes, fans are wondering if the end is in sight for the car show.

Is The Grand Tour Cancelled?

No. After Season 3, The Grand Tour changed its episode layout, and while Clarkson sheds a tear at this time, this was really down to his emotions behind the leaving of Top Gear, and the changing of the episode layout he created.

The iconic Grand Tour tent has also been left behind, as have the car reviews, the Eboladrome test track, and the audience, and now we’re left with special episodes only with the most recent being A Massive Hunt, where the trio drove through Madagascar in order to find hidden pirate treasure.

Despite only two episodes being released each year, or fewer thanks to the Covid pandemic in 2020, The Grand Tour has not, and isn’t being cancelled.

What’s The Next Episode?

The Grand Tour filmed an episode in Scotland late last year (2020) where they travelled from Edinburgh to the Out Hebrides. According to Clarkson, this should be released later this year (2021), but of course, with the pandemic still being prevalent in the UK, this cannot be confirmed.

The ex-Top Gear presenter said the following:

“We’ve done Scotland and I know they are saying in the edit it is very unplugged.

“We couldn’t go abroad obviously, I think everyone will understand why, so we did Scotland.”

He’s then asked what time they’d expect the episode to be released.

“I would have guessed you would have seen Madagascar in May and here we are in December.

“So when is Scotland happening? Ready steady, June.

“It won’t be, it won’t be but it could be shown in June I think.”

Will There Be More Episodes Of The Grand Tour After Scotland? A Fifth Season?

Yes! Jeremy Clarkson has confirmed that there will be “several more” after the Scotland special, including an episode where they venture to Northern Russia to play in the snow.

“We’re down to do several more, several more let’s put it like that,” he says.

“Which is great. It’s great from our point of view.

“The thing is Richard and James and I pretend to hate each other but when we get together – and we don’t get together on purpose when we’re not working – but when we do [we] immediately fall about laughing.

“And then we just laugh and laugh and laugh the whole time we are together.

“It’s a chemistry that hasn’t been manufactured, its evolved over many many years which is great.”
