The new series of The Grand Tour will see Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May travel through more locations than ever, attempting to avoid any further mishaps and injury along the way. The trio will spend over 100 days across five continents, racking up more passport stamps from Croatia, Mozambique, Dubai, Spain, Switzerland, Colorado and New York and many more exotic locations around the world.
Given their sore joints, struggling lungs and combined age of 158, the studio tent has been given a new home in a charming location in the Cotswolds. For one week only, Amazon is inviting customers around the world to apply to be on the studio guestlist and join Clarkson, Hammond and May in their home country. Applications for tickets to the studio recordings of series two opens today at Amazon UK, closing at midnight on October 3rd.
“The Grand Tour is our most popular show around the world having been watched in over 240 countries and territories,” said Jay Marine, VP of Amazon Video Europe. “Customers continually tell us that their favourite segments of The Grand Tour are the travelling adventures of Jeremy, Richard and James, so despite the various calamities and injuries along the way, the guys have spent this year exploring more incredible and stunning locations than ever before…and getting into more trouble of course. We can’t wait for our Prime members to see series two later this year.”
Andy Wilman, Executive Producer of The Grand Tour added: “It’s clear that the most popular ‘Grand Tour’ element of the show is when the chaps are roaming the globe on their big adventures and road trips, so that’s what we’re doing a lot more of for this series. We’ll keep the studio in one place, and given how accident prone they are at the minute, that can only be a good thing!”
Series one of The Grand Tour with Clarkson, Hammond and May broke records when it launched in November 2016, becoming the biggest show premiere ever on Amazon Prime Video. The Grand Tour is now also the most downloaded show on Prime Video to date with many customers downloading to watch on the go. Customers can re watch all of series one anytime on Prime Video and follow The Grand Tour on Facebook, and Twitter to be the first notified of upcoming news. As part of a three series deal, The Grand Tour will be back for two more series with the second series coming to Prime Video later this year.
