It’s been almost a year since the last episode of The Grand Tour, with The Grand Tour Presents: Seamen being released on December 13th of last year, and there’s no hint of the next episode coming to Amazon Prime any time soon. Set in Madagascar, this coming episode will follow the boys as they trek through wildlife with three cars modified for off-roading, but thanks to the pandemic and other related issues, its release date has been pushed back.
In fact, we don’t know the release date of the Madagascar Special episode, and neither does Jeremy Clarkson. The ex-Top Gear presenter doesn’t even know why there’s been such a holdup. He took to Twitter in response to a fan asking about the reasons behind the huge setback.
“No doubt a frustrating situation for you all,” says the fan. “What has been the hold up? I have been a lifetime fan of yours Mr Clarkson. My sons and I thoroughly look forward to spending time together seeing your work! Stay healthy!”

Clarkson answered moment later, explaining that he doesn’t have any ideas as to why the show has been pushed back so much.
“I have no idea,” he says.

Amazon seems to be playing its cards close to its chest when it comes to the boy’s next episode. And it’s no surprise when they have so much going on just from the content produced by the trio. James May is releasing his new cooking show ‘Oh Cook’, soon, and Clarkson is finishing up his farming show, ‘I Bought The Farm’. Of course, the streaming company wants to separate these enough to keep us fans’ attention, but right now, we’re losing the will.
