Fans of Jeremy Clarkson might be disappointed because "The Grand Tour" will be aired weekly.
Those who love to binge-watch his previous show are surprised by the fact that Amazon decided the show to be a 12-installment series to be shown once a week. "The Grand Tour" will hit the small screens on Nov. 18
The show is led by former "Top Gear" host Jeremy Clarkson, along with his buddies, Richard Hammond and James May. UPI noted that the new exciting show will all be about cars and everything about it in between.
Jay Marine, the vice president of Amazon Prime Video EU said on Friday that the public has been desperate to find details about the show. Hence, the announcement.
"The guys have been having a blast filming the show around the world and we can't wait for fans to see it weekly beginning Nov. 18, only on Amazon Prime Video," he said.
However, those who would like to witness upcoming car show must have a subscription from Amazon. This might be the reason that the viewers are allegedly disappointed.
According to Daily Record, the show producer Andy Wilman said he lobbied US-based Amazon not to release the programme for binge-watching viewers who got used to tuning into Netflix for a series marathon. For that, the car lovers who want to watch the Amazon show will have to pay a minimum of £5.99 a month.
Clarkson left BBC after having a feud with one of the "Top Gear" producers. Meanwhile, his partners would not want to continue the show without him. Thus far, they transferred to Amazon.
