Top Gear as we know it is history after Clarkson’s “incident” where he sort of attacked one of the show workers.
Not just Clarkson, but also May and Hammond soon announced they will depart from the iconic show.
For a while the question was, what next and different rumours started circulating.
Earlier this week, the trio announced they will be back with a new show, that will air worldwide through the Amazon Prime online service. Clarkson, May and Hammond will be working again together with former Top Gear producer Andy Wilman.
Amazon Prime Video EU’s vice-president Jay Marine said about the deal “customers told us they wanted to see the team back on screen, and we are excited to make that happen.”
The unnamed show is scheduled to air sometime next year and n details have emerged about the deal.
According to Financial Times, Amazon has agreed to pay Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond a $250 million (€226) for a three-year contract consisting of 36 episodes. Very likely each season will have 12 episodes.
The new show will air through the Amazon Prime online service, meaning it will be available instantly almost all over the world.
