Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May won't let the pandemic stop them from travelling the world on The Grand Tour.
Production on new specials with the trio for Amazon Prime Video was understandably halted due to travel restrictions earlier this year, with May later admitting his team would put future planning on hold so as not to "compromise" the health of their co-workers.
Georgia Brown, Amazon Prime Video's director of European Originals, had a very positive update during an appearance at the Edinburgh TV Festival on Thursday (via The Radio Times).
"Of all of our talent, these guys are fearless," she said of Jeremy, James and Richard. "They will go anywhere, they will do anything. So no, it continues. We have more Grand Tour coming, we have more of their individual projects coming.
"Every single show has been impacted, but it's not stopping our ambition to go around the world and film in these incredible places."
Brown was also quick to assure fans that while strict safety precautions would be followed, new specials would be just as "grand" as those from past series.
"We're not downsizing, put it that way," she insisted.
While fans wait for more Grand Tour, James May has landed his own spin-off called Oh Cook, where he attempts to learn 60 recipes for his upcoming cookbook.
According to Amazon, James May: Oh Cook will be a culinary instructional show told "from the perspective of someone who can't really cook", in order to prove anyone can learn to make some signature dishes!
The Grand Tour airs on Amazon Prime Video. James May: Oh Cook will arrive on Amazon Prime Video later this year.
