What Does IMDb Say About ‘The Grand Tour Presents: The Massive Hunt’?
Since IMDb has been wrong twice already, perhaps it is a good sign that the Amazon-owned movie and television database does not have a listing yet. They were just one more red herring.
Why Did It Take So Long For ‘The Massive Hunt’?
So, exactly why did it take so long for a new episode of The Grand Tour? Basically, it is due to Covid-19. The trio did go to Madagascar about a year ago. They were safely home before Covid hit. But, their longtime producer, Andy Wilman got the coronavirus.
When he did get better, he sifted through the over 1,000 hours of footage to come up with the best hour and a half of crazy shenanigans. So, mark your calendar.
Get ready. The Grand Tour is finally back on Friday, December 18, 2020. Watch “The Massive Hunt” on Amazon Prime.
