When does The Grand Tour Season 4 start on Amazon Prime? Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are returning on December 13. Expect new cars, exotic adventures and a lot of laughs, but don’t expect one of their trademarks. We have all the info on the new season here.
The Grand Tour Is Back For Season 4
This year Friday the 13th is a lucky day for fans of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. The trio are the crazy hosts of Amazon’s The Grand Tour. They are taken to exotic locations, given a vehicle and a challenge to complete. But, this is not going to be a normal season. All three will be driving boats throughout the episode. What do we know?
The first episode for Season 4 is entitled “Seamen.” Their crazy assignment is to cross the Mekong Delta. This will take them through Vietnam and Cambodia. Sounds easy? Not so fast! Wait until you see their vehicles! Jeremy Clarkson will be comodeering a Vietnam-era Patrol Boat River. Richard Hammond will be rolling up his sleeves and taking a “Miami Vice-style” speed boat. Lastly, Captain Slow himself, James May, will be at the helm of a 1939 wooden river cruiser.
According to the preview, they get lost, crash into other smaller boats and have some mechanical problems. They face sinking, sleepless nights and perhaps even some career reflection.
What Is Missing In New Season, The Excitement Replaces It
There are a couple of major changes for Season 4. Gone are the studio segments, where the trio interview celebrities, who test out an economical vehicle on the race track, and post their time. At the end of Season 3, a teary-eyed Clarkson shared that they would no longer have studio segments. There was never a real explanation as to why they gave up their tent, but the good news is the show continues. And it is more exciting than ever!
According to Deadline, The Grand Tour Season 4 is now all about specials. Georgia Brown, Amazon’s director of European originals, shared some insights into the first special, “Seamen.” She explained that the thrills and spills are so incredible that fans are going to really enjoy this first special of the fourth season.
“We know fans love to see the guys take on these incredible adventures across exotic locations and The Grand Tour presents: “Seamen” does just that – this feature-length special promises to be a thrilling off-road escapade, full of challenges and jeopardy, climaxing in one of the most dangerous and exciting challenges Jeremy, Richard and James may have ever endured.”
The other big change is the amount of episodes. The next episode is currently being filmed in Madagascar and will be out sometime in 2020. Because all three presenters will have their own shows on Amazon, there is only expected to be two new episodes each year. It is not clear whether or not there will be another episode after the Madagascar episode in 2020.
