May, Clarkson and Hammond's new motoring show on Amazon

The trio and executive producer Andy Wilman signed a three-year deal and there are going to be 30-plus long episodes with Amazon worth a reputed £160m, with Clarkson on £10m a series, Hammond and May on £7m each.

May confirms it will begin in the autumn, with each run likely to be 11 episodes, possibly more. It will be scheduled – albeit not in the traditional sense – so won’t be immediately available to binge-watch.

It will also leave the TV studio behind, disappointing devotees of the “cool wall” but an exciting prospect for fans of Top Gear’s sumptuously filmed location shoots.

May says they are making more episodes than they did in the latter days of Top Gear and it is “logistically more complicated ... We are making a series of TV films and we don’t have a base”.
