Clarkson, May and Hammond Head to Amazon: Top Gear 2.0

After Jeremy Clarkson was fired from Top Gear earlier this year, both Richard Hammond and James May proceeded to quit the show in solidarity. It’s been long-since rumored that the trio would return with a new show – first on Netflix, then later on ITV. Neither of those deals came to fruition, and it turns out that the gang was working on a contract with Amazon instead.

The Jessa, the Hamster and Captain Slow will be returning to our TVs, tablets,¬†and other devices sometime in 2016. Also joining the trio is executive producer Andy Wilman. You’ll need an Amazon Prime membership to watch the as yet unnamed series.

This is a major score for Amazon, who has some great original programming, but has yet to have a big breakthrough show like Netflix has. Given the fact that Top Gear was recently recognized as the most watched non-fiction TV show on the planet, it’s a pretty big deal. You can sign up for breaking news on the new series here.
