Ousted Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson will soon be back with his best buds; James May and Richard Hammond. Motoring television’s most famous trio is set to reunite for a new car program produced by long time Top Gear veteran Andy Wilman for Amazon’s new on demand service; Amazon Prime.
The three presenters simultaneously announced the deal this morning via their twitter accounts, James May ushering in the announcement with his typical, “Good News!” phrase. Jeremy Clarkson in a snub to his former employers at the BBC said,
I feel like I’ve climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship.
Richard Hammond shouted, “I’ve got a job!” The new show is set to begin production soon for episodes airing at the beginning of 2016. The show is yet to have a title, but the demand for Amazon’s on demand Prime service looks set to skyrocket.
