The Grand Tour, Prime Video’s popular car show featuring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, has been entertaining audiences for several seasons now. Fans of the show are always excited to see what the trio has in store for them next.
However, the show’s been in a bit of a tough place recently, all thanks to Jeremy Clarkson and an article he wrote in The Sun. We’re going to talk about that a little bit later on in this article and find out how it might impact the upcoming episodes and specials of The Grand Tour.
So, in this article, we’ll take a look at what to expect from the next episode of The Grand Tour.
When will The Grand Tour’s next episode be released?
At the time of writing, the release date for the next episode of The Grand Tour has not been announced. However, the show usually releases new episodes on a regular schedule, so fans can expect the next episode to be available soon.
One of the things we do know is that there will be at least one special released later this year. So, we will see The Grand Tour return to Prime Video in 2023. During a recent interview, Jeremy was asked when the next episode of The Grand Tour would be released on Amazon Prime Video.
Jeremy revealed that it would be released in “a very long time”. However, he then said that it would be out on the streaming platform in about six months. Clarkson revealed:
A very long time. Is it six months, perhaps? Six months.
This means that this upcoming The Grand Tour special might be released in December, towards the end of this year. However, it could very easily be pushed into early 2023. However, another thing we now know is that Amazon has opted not to renew Jeremy Clarkson’s contract.
What does this mean? Well, it means that the show is effectively cancelled. What Amazon has done is allowed the production of the specials that were already in the works to continue, but there will be no more The Grand Tour specials greenlit by the company.
So, this means that we’re going to get to see four more specials, and then the show will come to an end. This has been met with anger by many The Grand Tour fans. However, I’m personally of the opinion that Amazon made the right decision, especially given what Jeremy Clarkson wrote in his op-ed in The Sun about Meghan Markle, which was neither clever nor funny. It was just insulting.
Where will they go in the next episode?

The Grand Tour is known for taking viewers to different locations around the world. In the past, the show has visited locations such as South Africa, the United States, and many European countries.
As for where the next episode of the awesome Prime Video series will take place, we have a solid answer for you. It’s been revealed that the following The Grand Tour special will be set in Poland, and Jeremy and Richard will cycle around the area. I’m sure that Jeremy is very happy about that fact. Jeremy and Richard let slip a little bit of what we should expect from the upcoming special.
Clarkson and his The Grand Tour colleague, Richard Hammond, were talking to a Radio 1 Slovenia journalist in a hotel. During the interview, Clarkson and Hammond revealed that they had travelled 2,000km through Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary and were now going through Slovenia. Here’s what Clarkson had to say about the upcoming Grand Tour special:
Well, this is, it is actually the finish point for a long – about a 2,200 kilometre drive from Gdansk at the top of Poland. All the way down to Krakow, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and then here.
Clarkson was then asked what he thought of Slovenia, and he admitted that he thought it was “very pretty”. Here’s what he had to say about travelling through Hungary and Slovenia:
Well, we came in through the mountains from Hungary, so it’s just straight away very pretty. And then it stays very pretty to here. So it’s just very pretty.
What could happen in The Grand Tour’s next episode?
The Grand Tour is known for featuring a variety of cars, challenges, and stunts. The next episode is likely to include more of the same. However, it sounds as though the next special might be a bit different from the ones we’ve seen before.
As far as what The Grand Tour trio is going to be doing in this special, it seems as though Clarkson, Hammond and May will be swapping cars for bikes, which should be a lot of fun to watch. We all know how much Clarkson hates bikes. I’m sure he’ll be very annoyed throughout the whole special.
We’re just going to have to wait and see what ends up happening in this special, and I, for one, cannot wait to see the next special because this show is easily one of my favourite Prime Video series.
Will there be any more episodes of The Grand Tour?

As far as future episodes of the show are concerned, it’s been revealed that there will be four more, and then the show will come to an end. It’s predicted that the final episode of the series will be released in 2025.
So, there will be more episodes after this Poland special. Richard Hammond admitted to This Morning on ITV (via Grand Tour Nation) that these episodes take a lot of planning, and planning has started for the next stint of filming. Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
Yeah, they take a lot of planning, as you can imagine, you know TV. There’s so much planning involved, building one of those shows just… I mean there’s a lot of us in the show.
Then one of This Morning’s presenters, Phillip Scofield, asked Hammond: “Where do you want to go, what do you want to do?” However, Richard didn’t want to give too much away. He said:
I don’t know. We actually have a meeting next week. We’re often asked ‘Do you all see each other between shows?’ Well yes because we finish one of the shows, then it’s got to be edited. And Andy Wilman, that you both know is a genius, puts the thing together, but we’re all involved in seeing that through various stages. Then by the time we finish that, we’re starting to plan the next one.
Has The Grand Tour been cancelled?
So, the answer to this question is a tricky one. The show hasn’t been cancelled. Amazon is just not renewing Jeremy Clarkson’s contract. It’s been suggested that this means that the show will effectively end after the four next specials are released.
This news was confirmed by Variety in an article that was posted after we were informed that Amazon Studios was looking very closely at the situation with Jeremy Clarkson, and they weren’t happy with the presenter and journalist at all.
It was eventually decided that they would not renew his contract, thus ending the rather lucrative relationship between Amazon and Clarkson. Clarkson’s Farm seasons 2 and 3 will be released, but that will be it. It’s the same sort of situation with The Grand Tour.
So, even though The Grand Tour continues to be a popular and entertaining car show, there will only be four more specials to come for fans to enjoy. Fans can look forward to the next episode, which will likely include more exciting cars, challenges, and locations.
Keep an eye on the show’s official website and social media accounts for updates on the release date and details of the next episode.
