Amazon has just released the first set of images from its new original series, which is currently on location in Johannesburg, South Africa. Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May appear in the “first-ever studio tent recording” of their new show “The Grand Tour,” which follows the trio’s post–”Top Gear” automotive adventures.
Clarkson, Hammond and May co-presented the highly popular BBC series for more than a decade until their joint departure last year. This new venture continues in a similar vein, with the three hosts traveling the world and driving around in various exotic locales. Naming the show proved difficult, with “Gear Knob” being floated as a possible title before the three eventually settled on “The Grand Tour.”
The show, which is produced by longtime “Top Gear” producer Andy Wilman, doesn’t have a premiere date but is set to begin this fall. The main quartet has already agreed to 36 episodes across three years, with new episodes released weekly.
