Amazon Prime announces that 'Clarkson’s Farm' will return for third series
Jeremy Clarkson’s farming show has got the green light for a third series before the second series has even aired.
The show – which follows the former Top Gear star as he gets to grips with running his Diddly Squat Farm – started in 2021 and was a big hit.
It has already been announced that a second series will follow, and Amazon Prime Video has now said production has commenced on a third series.

The series will see the return of farmers Kaleb and Gerald, advisor ‘Cheerful’ Charlie and Clarkson’s partner Lisa, as well as some new characters.
Clarkson, 62, said he was “genuinely thrilled” to be doing another series of the programme.
“I’ve had some great new ideas, all of which have made Charlie, Lisa and Kaleb deeply unhappy,” he teased.
Kaleb said he was “over the moon”, and quipped: “Well, they do say third time’s a charm!
"Maybe this will be the series that Jeremy finally starts taking advice from a real farmer!”
The second series is due in early 2023 and will see the introduction of new animals and crops to the farm, as well as the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? host’s dealings with the local council as he attempts to diversify his operation with a restaurant.
Series three will see the team coming up with new and creative ways to use the part of the Chipping Norton property that isn’t used.
Dan Grabiner, head of UK Originals at Amazon Studios, said: “Thank you Kaleb, Lisa, Gerald, and Charlie for making sure Jeremy doesn’t completely muck it up.

“Watching Clarkson’s Farm grow from an intimate glimpse into British farming to a global sensation has been a delight. We’re thrilled to be continuing the story year after year as the plot thickens for our favourite farmers.”
