Top Gear Coming to Amazon Prime

OK, so they can be rude, crude, and insulting. And yes, well, the leader of the pack is a bit of jerk sometimes. But we love them. Jeremy Clarkson, James May (my personal hero), and Richard Hammond are not only irreverent and funny, but they are extremely knowledgeable about cars. And entertaining. Did I mention entertaining?

Top Gear - Hammond, Clarkson, and May

Ever since the BBC fired Jeremy Clarkson for being a complete and uncivilized jerk, no argument there, the future of Top Gear has been in question. Would the show come back? How could it come back without its stars since both Hammond and May refused to work without Clarkson. And if it did come back, would it be a bust like the American version?

Well, Amazon has answered the question. It was announced today that Clarkson, Hammon and May will be coming exclusively to Amazon Prime in 2016. No real details are out yet, just the picture above and Amazon.co.uk‘s announcement which reads…

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are reuniting to create an all-new car show, exclusively for Amazon Prime. The show will be produced by the trio’s long time executive producer Andy Wilman. On working with Amazon, Jeremy Clarkson said “I feel like I’ve climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship.” The first show will go into production shortly and arrive exclusively on Amazon Prime in 2016.

As soon as more details are known, we will pass them on. But I can tell you this, we will be renewing out Amazon Prime subscription. I mean, how hard could it be?

  1. I for one am glad that they will be together again, it’s nice to listen and watch a show that isn’t all PC, and prissy

    • I couldn’t agree with you more. I am all for good behaviour, in general, but if you know what you are tuning in for then so be it. I think that type of thing works better under a subscription model like this. I am hoping it gets full distribution by Amazon in the US and is not restricted to the UK in some manner.
