‘Clarkson’s Farm’ Renewed For Season 2 By Amazon
After a bit of back and forth, Amazon has finally renewed Jeremy Clarkson’s series ‘Clarkson’s Farm‘ for a 2nd Season the streaming service has announced.
For those of you who have not caught the series, it follows an intense, arduous and frequently hilarious year in the life of Britain’s most unlikely farmer, Jeremy Clarkson… Jeremy has owned the thousand-acre farm in Oxfordshire since 2008, but when his former farm manager decided to retire in 2019, he makes the decision to take on the job himself. We follow Jeremy and his rag-tag band of agricultural associates as they face-up to a backdrop of unhelpful weather, disobedient animals, unresponsive crops and an unexpected pandemic. This is Jeremy Clarkson as you’ve never seen him before.
The series has been a huge hit for Amazon and getting great reviews, which made it somewhat surprising when Jeremy tweeted a few weeks ago that they had not been renewed for a second season. This resulted in Amazon being bombarded with pleas from fans to get it renewed. Thankfully, Amazon has now come through.
Like many other people, I wasn’t sure I’d be into a farming show, but the series is hilariously entertaining, as you follow Clarkson and his usual “bull in a china shop” approach to getting things done. What makes it work so well is the rather more experienced team of agricultural people surrounding him. There is Kaleb, the young farmworker who has rarely left the village of Chadlington, but has way more knowledge when it comes to managing the farm; Professional agronomist and land agent Charlie, dubbed “Cheerful Charlie” by Clarkson, due to the fact he tends to turn up to give him bad news or tell him he’s doing something wrong; Gerald, the local specialist in the construction and maintenance of dry stone walls, who has a local accent so thick Jeremy can’t understand him; And Lisa, Clarkson’s (somewhat long-suffering) girlfriend who manages their farm shop.
‘Clarkson’s Farm’ is produced by Expectation and Clarkson’s Con Dao Productions. Peter Fincham and Andy Wilman exec produce, with Will Yapp as series director.
