Top Gear Trio Sign With Amazon (Not Netflix) For Brand New Show

Amazon Announces New Car Show Featuring the Old Top Gear Presenters

Amazon has announced that Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will be reuniting to create "an all-new car show" that will be exclusively on Amazon Prime.

The new show will be produced by the old-time Top Gear executive producer Andy Wilman and is scheduled to go into production "shortly." It will apparently appear on screens in 2016. For what it's worth, Jeremy Clarkson has said that the move makes him "feel like I've climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship."

It's interesting to be an Australian observer to this news, especially given that Amazon's Instant Video product doesn't see the light of day down under. We'll keep our ear to the ground to see if a local partner is announced for the new-look Top Gear.

If not, time to fire up those VPNs again, readers.
