Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May’s Grand Tour tent is getting a new permanent home in the Cotswolds for the show’s much anticipated second series.
Amazon says the trio’s “sore joints, struggling lungs and combined age of 158” means it’s time to end the tent’s weekly global tour but says they’ll spend “over 100 days” travelling across five continents including Africa, Europe, North America, South America and Asia, with locations including Croatia, Mozambique, Dubai, Spain, Switzerland, Colorado and New York.
Despite the tent’s static location, Amazon customers worldwide will have the opportunity to join studio audience by applying for tickets at amazon.co.uk/GTTickets.
“The Grand Tour is our most popular show around the world having been watched in over 240 countries and territories,” said Jay Marine, VP of Amazon Video Europe.
“Customers continually tell us that their favourite segments of The Grand Tour are the travelling adventures of Jeremy, Richard and James, so despite the various calamities and injuries along the way, the guys have spent this year exploring more incredible and stunning locations than ever before…and getting into more trouble of course. We can’t wait for our Prime members to see series two later this year.”
Andy Wilman, Executive Producer of The Grand Tour added: “It’s clear that the most popular ‘Grand Tour’ element of the show is when the chaps are roaming the globe on their big adventures and road trips, so that’s what we’re doing a lot more of for this series.
“We’ll keep the studio in one place, and given how accident prone they are at the minute, that can only be a good thing!”
The service is also available with a stand-alone subscription.
