Clarkson’s Farm viewers might be disappointed to learn they have a bit longer to wait for series three than expected.
The Prime Video docuseries follows former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarskon as he attempts to make his farm in the Cotswolds profitable.
Clarkson is currently filming the third season of the show, with production set to wrap in October.
Those who were expecting a release date announcement of 2023, though, have now been left disappointed by a Deadline report claiming that series three is being lined up for a release in 2024.
While a specific month was not suggested by the outlet, it could be that Prime Video will release new episodes in February, which is when the second series was released earlier this year.
The outlet also claimed that “those familiar with the matter said that discussions” for a fourth series “have been positive and there is ambition on both sides to bring the show back”. However, it was noted that “a deal has not been finalised”. The Independent has contacted Amazon for comment.
Clarkson’s Farm was recently defended at the Edinburgh TV Festival by Amazon representative Fozia Khan.
The defence was issued following reports that Amazon had “cut ties” with Clarkson due to the row over his widely criticised Meghan Markle column last December.
Clarkson published a column in The Sun in which he wrote that he despised Meghan on “a cellular level” and dreamt of the duchess being paraded naked through Britain while a crowd threw “excrement” at her.
He issued a lengthy public apology on his Instagram account at the time saying he “felt sick” when he realised he had “completely messed up” in writing the column, which had become UK press watchdog IPSO’s most-complained about article ever.
Clarkson also revealed he sent an email to Meghan and Prince Harry on Christmas Day, admitting his language was “disgraceful” and that he was “profoundly sorry”.
At the Edinburgh TV Festival, Fozia Khan, who is unscripted lead for UK Originals at Amazon Studios, said Clarkson’s Farm was “so much bigger than Clarkson”, calling it “a really good show”.
Dan Grabiner, head of originals for UK and Northern Europe, Amazon Studios, then said: “I can’t tell you what a phenomenon the show itself is and the impact it has had on the agricultural community and farming.
“We get messages from farmers around the world who just love the show and love Kaleb (Cooper) and Gerald (Cooper) and they relate to those characters, saying they have never really seen their world properly reflected on-screen before, which is amazing.
“And, as Fozia said, it’s a hell of a lot bigger than Jeremy Clarkson.”
