Fans of The Grand Tour have had to wait a long time to be able to indulge in some of the trio’s adventures with cars, with a year in between A Massive Hunt and the previous episode. Late last year, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May were spotted driving around Scotland in three classic American cars. And now Clarkson has given fans some idea of how long it will take for them to see another episode coming to Amazon Prime Video.
There is currently no official release date for the Scotland Special, and with Covid kicking up a gear in the UK, it’s likely it won’t be any time soon. On talking to press, including Grand Tour Nation, Jeremy Clarkson told us the following:
“Well, we knew we couldn’t go abroad.
“And so we simply looked and went ‘Right, well the Outer Hebrides then.”
“Of course, what was hilarious was we got there to find the producer of League of Their Own, we bumped into Joanna Lumley, Bob Mortimer and Paul Whitehouse.
“Every single television programme we could think of that would ordinarily be elsewhere in the world was in the Outer Hebrides with us.”
Late last year, he also gave us this information to stew over:
“Scotland won’t be going out for months.
“We’ve got to edit it which takes three months and it’s another 16 weeks to do the subtitles for different countries in the world.
“It’s a very long process from somebody shouting wrap to people being able to watch it.”
Initially, The Grand Tour was planning to head to Russia for their next special, but pandemic restrictions stopped this from happening, forcing them to stay within the UK.
“We’ve already filmed one for next year, which is our recent Scotland adventure,” he said.
“I mean I would hope we can do another one next year as well but it’s slightly out of our control.
“To be honest, it depends on what happens with all the Covid stuff.
“But I’m fairly confident that we’ll be able to film another one for next year so two will come out in 2021.”
Grand Tour Nation will keep you updated on any hints at release dates, but until then, The Grand Tour Presents: A Massive Hunt is available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
