Andy Wilman has just revealed the news that Season 4 will only consist of two special episodes, and as you may have seen, fans aren’t happy with this. But there are many reasons as to why this isn’t so bad. Yes it’s not ideal, but us fans of cars and the trio still have a reason to be happy.
There’s Now More Clarkson, Hammond and May Content Than Ever
While there may only be two episodes a year for Season 4, there’s never been more Clarkson, Hammond and May content being produced for our consumption. Each of the presenters has their solo projects coming which will consist of several episodes per season, plus, they’ve never been more active on social media.
Clarkson is posting most days with updates from his life, filming, and family, and their joint venture DriveTribe is rich with content from one of the presenters. Just take a look at the video below to see what we’re talking about.
The Two Grand Tour Special Episodes Are Going To Be Movie Length
In an interview, which you can find here, Andy Wilman explained that the first episode of Season 4 is currently sat at 1 hour and 45 minutes long. This is the length of a movie – definitely longer than the 50-60 minute episodes that we’re used to. This means we can sit back and enjoy an actual movie, but with Clarkson, Hammond and May at the helm.
How long have we wanted a Top Gear or The Grand Tour movie? A long time, so ladies and gents, here it is. And we get two! A year!
There Is So Much Other Car TV
Whatever the die hard fans may say about the new Top Gear, it’s actually pretty good. Yes it’s in its early days still, but there was a time where Top Gear hadn’t quite found out what it wanted to be.
If you still don’t want to give Top Gear a go, though, there is the whole of YouTube that is teaming with car content, both serious and funny. I’ll embed some videos below for you to watch.
Last but not least, The Grand Tour isn’t going to end. Not yet anyway. So things can always change. Stay happy people!
