When is the next episode of The Grand Tour season 4 on Amazon Prime Video?

0

The Grand Tour season 4 – The Grand Tour Presents, in other words – started in late 2019 with an episode called, err, ‘Seamen’. That episode hosted Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond as they travelled Cambodia and Vietnam by boat, an exotic romp which amounted to a fun departure from the trio’s other journeys.

Since then, fans have been twiddling their thumbs in wait for the next episode of The Grand Tour, which we know is on its way on an unspecified date this year. While it hasn’t been included in the list of new shows coming to Amazon Prime Video in November – meaning we will likely have to wait until December – James May has recently spoken out to stress that the upcoming Russia episode is far from cancelled.

Two more specials have been pushed back by the health crisis, since international travel isn’t isn’t as simple as it once was. Below, we’ll explain what we know about The Grand Tour season 4 episode 2’s release date, as well as its next, Russia-based episode.

The Grand Tour season 4 episode 2 release date is later this year

The release date of The Grand Tour’s next episode is likely to be revealed on November 18, 2020, based on the teaser image from Amazon above. A trailer is coming – we expect to find out that the episode will be released in December. It’s previously been confirmed for a 2020 release date by Amazon.

The Grand Tour season 4 is delayed by coronavirus

Two more episodes, likely from the same series of specials, are delayed because of coronavirus and the current concern around international travel. Responding to another complaint about the wait for new episodes of The Grand Tour on Twitter, Clarkson said, “Maybe you haven’t heard. There’s a virus you see and it’s making international travel tricky.”

Coronavirus is still spreading in some parts of the world, obviously, so while we know episode 2 of The Grand Tour season 4 in 2020, you will have a longer wait for more episodes.

The plan is that the next episode of The Grand Tour Presents will be filmed in Russia, but the team has to “wait for the snow again and we’ll go next year,” according to executive producer Andy Wilman. After this Madagascar episode, then, you will likely be waiting until 2021 for the next episode of The Grand Tour season 4.

The exact theme of this episode is unclear, but as of late 2019 when promoting the Seamen special, Clarkson told Globalnews that the next episode “starts in La Réunion and then ends largely in Madagascar. We started on the very same beach that a Scotsman was eaten the other day.” 

The shallow lagoons around there are snorkeling hotspots – but it doesn’t give us many clues of what to expect from this next episode. We do know that the hosts were “marooned” on a tropical island in November during filming for this special miles away from their crew, but they eventually made it out of Madagascar alive and well.

Presumably the trio will be wreaking as much havoc as ever. A now-removed job vacancy for a team member you can handle “grumpy officials” has now been pulled. With the capers the three have got up to in the past, lord help whomever gets that gig.

As per the post above, we know that the next episode of The Grand Tour will drop in 2020, but it looks like that’ll be in November at the earliest. That’s because it doesn’t appear in the list of new shows coming to Amazon Prime in October (courtesy of Mashable), so we may have to wait a little longer. 

When asked by a fan on Twitter for release details in September 2020, Clarkson simply replied “ask Amazon”. The company confirmed a 2020 launch for the Madagascar special earlier this year, but we still don’t have to a more specific date than that. Clarkson said it was “pretty much read to go” via Twitter a while ago, so the ball is seemingly in Amazon’s court. When asked again in October 2020, Clarkson said “I have no idea.”

However, the following episode, filmed in Russia, is up in the air over the current health crisis. James May explained this in a chat with The Sun. “The effects of lockdown on making TV shows is that we have to retract our ambitions for travel,” he said. He also stressed that he and the team “would rather wait a bit longer rather than rushing it for the sake of it and coming out with something half-arsed.”

To reassure eager fans, James May spoke to the Radio Times to emphasize that the Russia episode isn’t going anywhere, despite it being “on hold for all the obvious reasons.” May said “It’s all been planned and we can definitely do it when the restrictions lift so nothing is cancelled, it’s postponed.” In better news, production has recently wrapped on an upcoming episode in Scotland.
