History axes Top Gear USA

June 29, 2016

The BBC has confirmed that Top Gear USA has been cancelled. The programme, broadcast on the History channel in the US, is a spin-off from the motoring series and not the version shown in the UK now fronted by Chris Evans.

Top Gear USA presenter Rutlege Wood announced the news on Facebook – and hinted the show could return on a new channel. “I’m not saying Top Gear is done, but it’s done for the immediate future on History,” he wrote.

Top Gear USA has been running since 2010 – clocking up 72 episodes across six seasons.
