Former Top Gear trio’s new show to launch on Amazon Prime in autumn

NEW SHOW: Will feature James May, Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond.

JAMES MAY has revealed when fans can expect to see him in action on Amazon Prime with former Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond.

The presenter explained during a Reddit Q&A that the new motoring show will air in the autumn, but couldn’t say any more than that. When asked about the broadcast date of the new series, May replied: “The autumn, or fall if you’re in the US. That’s as specific as I can be.” 

It was announced last year that the trio will launch an as-yet-untitled rival to Top Gear on Amazon Prime. Chris Evans has taken over hosting duties on Top Gear with Matt LeBlanc and his large team, with Netflix rumoured to be in talks to stream the BBC show. Elsewhere, it was recently revealed that May will be fronting a three-part series where he fixes things in a workshop for BBC Four’s James May: The Reassembler.


The Great British Bake Off and Doctor Foster will fight it out for this year’s BAFTA Audience Award in association with the Radio Times. The BBC shows are also up against Humans, Making a Murderer, Peter Kay’s Car Share and Poldark for the award. The vote is open now, and will close on May 5. Amanda Berry OBE, Chief Executive of BAFTA, said: “The six shortlisted programmes showcase truly entertaining and captivating television from last year.” The winner for the Audience Award will be announced at the House of Fraser British Academy Television Awards on Sunday, May 8.
