The second season of The Grand Tour will be available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video this October. The announcement was made by presenter James May during his interview on BBC’s The One Show, according to the Grand Tour Nation group on Drivetribe.

“October is when you’ll first be able to see it, but after that, you’ll be able to see it whenever you want, of course. I’m told to say that!” said May, adding that the edits are being finalised. While he wouldn’t divulge the budget of the upcoming season when asked, he said, “As little as possible. No, it’s about the same, I would think. It is quite an expensive show to make.

“There’s a lot of travel involved. There’s a lot of crew involved. There’s a lot of tech involved, filming in 4K. But that’s boring stuff. It’s going to look largely the same, but we’ve moved it on a bit in a way that I can’t really tell you about yet because you’re the enemy and it’s secret!”

Speaking of which, it would be quite interesting to see where Amazon will take The Grand Tour in its sophomore season, especially after the show May, Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond vacated, Top Gear, has seen a major revamp of its own.

The world’s most popular motoring programme made Chris Harris and Rory Reid main hosts on season 24, joining Matt LeBlanc – with Eddie Jordan and Sabine Schmitz continuing in supporting roles – after the departure of lead presenter Chris Evans last year.
