Fans of the first series of Clarkson’s Farm have been waiting patiently after the positive reviews flooded the Amazon Prime show. But now fans will be pleased that Jeremy Clarkson has shed light on the release date of Season 2 in the comments of a recent Instagram post.
The first series of Clarkson’s Farm consisted of 8 episodes, and each one was positively received by his fans. In a review for Grand Tour Nation, I called it a “brilliant return to journalism” as the presenter moved away from his entertaining car shows and took on a new industry to explore. It was, plainly, inspirational. Which I think is what he intended it to be.
Alongside Kaleb Cooper and a number of other knowledgeable and funny people, Clarkson gave us the ins and outs of farming. Not just the glitz and glammer of the work, but the sad, annoying, and boring parts too. All while adding his own charm. And now we’re in for a second season.
While we don’t have an exact release date, Jeremy has pinpointed the time of year we’re waiting for:
“Filming ends in mid July. So it should be edited and ready to go early in the new year.”
“That’s ages Jeremy. Have a word please,” one fan replied (sic).
Another added, “possibly the slowest edit….. in the world.”
So, what do we know so far about Clarkson’s Farm Season 2?
Our favourite people will be returning. Kaleb Cooper will obviously be back, but we’ll also see Cheerful Charlie, Gerald Cooper, and Clarkson’s partner herself, Lisa Hogan.
While Season 1 focussed on starting the farm and setting in place his first revenue streams, I expect this upcoming season to focus on retaining what he’s already built while trying to diversify. Diversify will likely be the word we hear the most during the season as Jeremy attempts to build up more revenue streams such as his Hawkstone Lager and Kaleb’s cider, more products in the Diddly Squat Farm Shop such as his gin, milk, honey, etc, and the failed restaurant attempt.
Hopefully we’ll see some of the battle between the presenter and the council, we might even see some of the drama between him and his neighbours.
What will they be farming?
We have no idea, but there will likely be a lot of barley for his lager, and if his video promoting the lager is anything to go by, there will also be wheat.

I can confirm that there will be chickens and cows. The sheep, I’m not sure they’re still around, but most importantly, Jeremy welcomed two puppies, named Sansa and Arya, who we assume are fox red Labradors.
I’m very excited for Season 2, and will of course update you when I know more.
