The Grand Tour is officially done with Mike Skinner The American, but it needed a new hot shoe for track tests, and the awesome news is that the role’s gone to a woman for season two. She’s racing driver Abbie Eaton, but you wouldn’t know that from actually watching the show.
At last, the first episode of the second season of Amazon’s The Grand Tour aired last night. Armed with the knowledge that it would be the episode in which we see Richard Hammond’s Rimac Concept One crash, it cast a darkly anticipatory atmosphere over the viewing. But, despite a few snags, the episode generally…
Over the summer, we learned of some very scary news that Richard Hammond had crashed while driving the all-electric Rimac Concept One supercar during the filming of the second season of The Grand Tour. In addition to putting him in the hospital, the crash also threw a lot of The Grand Tour’s filming schedule out of…
Welcome to Jalopnik’s The Grand Tour Season 2 live blog, which no longer has a touring tent, leaving us only to judge whether or not it’s any grander than last season.
It’s been a little over a year since Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond returned to us with their new show on Amazon Prime, The Grand Tour. And this Friday, Dec. 8, the show will return for its second season. What are you hoping to see?
The best teaser to get us all excited for the second season of The Grand Tour was always going to be having the hosts talk about all of the ways they nearly met their fate while filming the show.
The whole point of Amazon’s The Grand Tour was to have a big traveling tent as the show’s studio, was it not? That’s what was supposed to make it different from The Show That Must Not Be Named, right? Well, for The Grand Tour’s upcoming second season, it seems that the tent will not be, er, touring.
The Grand Tour host Richard Hammond is in the hospital after a big, fiery wreck. Jeremy Clarkson is holed up rewriting scripts for a quickly approaching second season. James May is in a “hell hole” of an airport traveling to a shoot that Hammond was supposed to do. You could say things are a bit chaotic over there.
If the re-rebooted Top Gear still wasn’t your thing and you’re still hungry for more of Clarkson, Hammond and May, the second season of The Grand Tour will hit Amazon Prime this October.
You may not have forgotten that tonight is the 13th and final episode of the premiere season of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May’s Amazon Prime show, The Grand Tour. I almost did forget. And I haven’t yet seen the 12th episode. Nor the last 20 minutes of the 11th.
James May is one of few people in this world who can simply stand behind a workbench, put a bunch of parts together for a half an hour, and be genuinely entertaining all the while. Here he is assembling a Honda Mini Bike in a way that only the lovable James May could.
In a short time, The Grand Tour has set a record or two. Its $3.2 million opening is likely the most expensive television scene ever, and it had the most watched Amazon Prime premiere. But it also might have set a less flattering record: the most illegally watched show ever, beating Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead…
Never would I have thought that watching James May reassemble everyday objects bring me to a place of peace and zen, but here we are. And there are more episodes on the way.
