Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May are taking another lap: The Top Gear hosts are reuniting for an all-new car show on Amazon Prime, produced by the group’s long-time executive producer Andy Wilman. The as-yet-untitled series will begin filming shortly and debut exclusively on Prime in 2016.
“I feel like I’ve climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship,” says Clarkson.
Clarkson was let go from his Top Gear contract following a “fracas” with producer Oisin Tymon. In response to the host’s ousting, Hammond and May turned down the offer to return as presenters for the BBC series.
Clarkson tweeted his excitement about the new series:
I’m very excited to announce that Hammond, May and I have signed a deal with .@AmazonVideo
