The Grand Tour will be releasing yet another special, but I know that many of you will be desperate to know when it’ll be released on Prime Video. This series is easily one of the most successful shows ever on Amazon’s streaming platform, and for good reason. It’s the show that brought back everybody’s favourite car enthusiast trio: Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond.
The trio originally presented the BBC’s hit car show, Top Gear, together until Clarkson was fired for punching a colleague in the face. That was a pretty big deal, and it came after a string of controversies involving Clarkson. However, ever since Amazon agreed to give the trio a new show, there haven’t been as many issues, and we’ve seen them do some of their best and craziest stuff.
Amazon just let the trio and their producer, Mr. Wilman, do whatever they wanted to do, no matter how irresponsible and stupid. It’s resulted in some great TV and also some pretty terrifying crashes – mostly involving Richard Hammond. However, the latest special, A Skandi Flick, saw James May end up in a terrible car crash, affecting everyone working on the show. Thankfully, May was fine and took part in the rest of the special after the accident.

So, what’s happening with the next The Grand Tour special? That’s why you’ve clicked on this article. Is there another episode coming, and if so, where is the trio going, and when will it be released? These are questions I’m going to try and answer for you. Well, thankfully, we have quite a bit of information to share with you about the upcoming special.
As far as whether another special is coming, the answer is yes – it is. However, we don’t know precisely when the upcoming special will be released. That said, we might have some information to share with you on that front. 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. This would be a lot sooner than I would have expected given the fact that we’ve just seen The Grand Tour Presents – A Scandi Flick.
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.
When will The Grand Tour’s next special be released?
But, what about other episodes of The Grand Tour? Will there be any more after this upcoming Poland special? The answer is yes. 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.

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.
