'Clarkson's Farm' confirmed for second series on Amazon Prime
Jeremy Clarkson's show Clarkson's Farm will return for a second series, Amazon Prime Video has confirmed.
The first series of the UK originally launched on the platform in June and there has since been speculation on the future of the programme.
The show follows the 61-year-old presenter as he attempts to run his own farm - Diddly Squat - with help from an expert team comprised of tractor driver Kaleb, farmer Gerald and advisor ‘Cheerful’ Charlie, as well as his wife Lisa who runs the farm shop.

“I’m absolutely delighted that, once again you’ll be able to spend some time with Cheerful Charlie, Gerald, Lisa and of course, Kaleb,” Clarkson said. “We are such a happy team.”

Dan Grabiner, Head of UK Originals, Amazon Studios added: “Clarkson’s Farm is Jeremy’s unfiltered love letter to farming. It is that authenticity, charm and humour, combined with the farm’s fantastic characters, which have made the series such a remarkable hit with audiences.
“We are delighted to be joining the team for another year-in-the-life of Diddly Squat, and wish Kaleb and farmers across the country luck as Mother Nature continues to take revenge on Jeremy.”
A video from Amazon Prime saw Clarkson announce the news while Kaleb jested the show should be renamed "Kaleb's Farm".
Prior to the announcement, Clarkson had been addressing the programme's future on social media and shutting down rumours it had been cancelled but also hinting a second season wasn't a definite either.

Filming has begun on the next series, although a launch date is yet to be confirmed.
