We already knew that production for season two of The Grand Tour would begin immediately after season one shooting was completed. What we didn’t know, until now, is when the latest adventures of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May would commence once again. Digital Spy reports that James May was interviewed on The One Show earlier this week where he was asked when fans can expect new episodes to premiere on Amazon Prime Video.
“October is when you’ll first be able to see it,” Captain Slow revealed. “But after that, you’ll be able to see it whenever you want, of course. I’m told to say that!” The One Show host, Matt Baker, also brought up the subject of The Grand Tour’s massive season one budget, and whether it’ll be a similar figure for the upcoming season. “As little as possible,” May jokingly replied. “No, it’s about the same, I would think. It is quite an expensive show to make. There’s a lot of travel involved. There’s a lot of crew involved. There’s a lot of tech involved, filming in 4K. But that’s boring stuff. It’s going to look largely the same, but we’ve moved it on a bit in a way that I can’t really tell you about yet because you’re the enemy and it’s secret!”
Back in March we found out that Richard Hammond was involved in yet another accident, this time involving a motorbike, where he suffered a head injury. Fortunately, it wasn’t anywhere near as severe as his 288 mph crash 11 years ago while hosting Top Gear.
