There are changes afoot over at Prime Video as the streamer announces ‘Clarkson’s Farm‘ will return for a 4th Season, ahead of the Season 3 premiere next year, but also that Clarkson, Hammond and May have filmed their last episode of ‘The Grand Tour‘.
‘Clarkson’s Farm‘ follows Britain’s best-known but least-qualified amateur farmer, Jeremy Clarkson, for a year in the life of Diddly Squat Farm. Jeremy has owned the thousand-acre farm in Oxfordshire since 2008, but when his former farm manager decided to retire in 2019, he made the decision to take on the job himself. We follow Jeremy and his rag-tag band of agricultural associates facing unhelpful weather, disobedient animals, unresponsive crops… and Jeremy’s “unique” ideas to improve profits…
The upcoming 3rd Season, due to air next year, sees Jeremy and the team tackle the unfarmed part of the farm, which makes up almost half of the entire 1,000-acre site.

Prime Video made the Season 4 announcement on social media as Clarkson, Kaleb, and Lisa attempted to get the sheep to cooperate in the big reveal… Which, of course, does not go well…
News also dropped today for Clarkson’s other show, ‘The Grand Tour’. Fozia Khan, Amazon Studios’ head of unscripted in the UK commented that Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May have filmed their final instalment of the series, saying “It’s come to its natural end.” The final episode featuring the trio involves a trip to Zimbabwe. According to various reports, this appears to be a decision by the three presenters who want to move on to a multitude of other projects.
Interestingly, Clarkson, Hammond, and May are said to have given their approval for Amazon to explore the possibility of keeping ‘The Grand Tour’ brand going with a new line-up of hosts. Given this comes at a time when the BBC has recently revealed ‘Top Gear’ has been shelved for the “foreseeable future”, it does make us wonder (and we’re very much speculating here…) if they have their eye on Chris Harris and/or Paddy McGuinness as some of the possible replacements.
‘Clarkson’s Farm‘ Season 3, and the final Clarkson, Hammond, and May special for ‘The Grand Tour‘ are expected to land on Prime Video in 2024. If you want to keep track of this or any of the shows, you can add them via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when the next season gets a UK premiere date.
