'Top Gear' Will Not Replace Chris Evans

Speculate no more: Evans won't have a successor.

The dust hasn't even settled following Chris Evans' resignation from "Top Gear." Everyone (us included) is now speculating as to how the show will move on following the loss of its lead presenter. Now we can all worry no more because a BBC spokesperson has confirmed that Chris Evans will not be replaced. Speaking to the Evening Standard, the spokesperson said that, "We have no immediate plans to replace Chris Evans and do not expect to do so going forward." She also said that "Series 24 starts filming in September."

We can only assume that the rest of the updated cast will remain. This means that Matt LeBlanc, Rory Reid, Chris Harris, Sabine Schmitz and Eddie Jordan will likely all make a return. Matt LeBlanc had the largest role on the show next to Evans, so it appears that he will be in line to get the lion's share of the work. Although, we think that Chris Harris and Rory Reid are better suited to lead the show moving forward. Do you think that "Top Gear" has a good chance to improve now that Evans has departed? Or do you think that the show is still doomed? Let us know in the comments.
