Jeremy Clarkson Says Report The Grand Tour Will End Not True

A report surfaced in The Daily Mail over the weekend claiming The Grand Tour will end following its third full season on Amazon Prime, but Jeremy Clarkson has now dispelled of the rumors.

The report claimed that Amazon had yet to sign on Clarkson and his co-stars, Richard Hammond and James May, for a fourth season of the show. Filming is currently underway on the third season, which should air later this year. Speaking to The Daily Star, Clarkson said the report is untrue. Additionally, the TV presenter tweeted out that it was “hilarious” anyone believed The Daily Mail’s initial report.

“All I will say for now is that, as usual, the reports are inaccurate,” he said.

What seemed to fuel these rumors is Amazon has yet to approach the show’s producers about a fourth season, leaving some employees wondering what may happen when filming for season three wraps up. Additionally, Clarkson recently took a job as a host of ITV’s Who Wants to be a Millionaire – but filming for that weeklong series will be brief, and won’t get in the way of any Grand Tour obligations.

The Grand Tour producer Andy Wilman said his team is “focusing on series three at the moment,” but didn’t comment on the rumors that the show won’t be renewed for a fourth season. It seems The Daily Mail heard Amazon had yet to approach The Grand Tour team about Season 4, and saw that, along with Clarkson’s new Millionaire gig, as evidence that The Grand Tour’s future may be in trouble. Thankfully that doesn’t appear to be the case, so fans of Clarkson, Hammond and May can rest easy for the time being.
