The creators of The Grand Tour have fulfilled their three-season commitment, so what can we expect from The Grand Tour season 4? The Amazon Prime motor series uses an evolving form of segments to inform and entertainment viewers about car culture, with celebrities and big budgets being integral to the format.
The Grand Tour was created by former Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, in addition to former Top Gear producer Andy Wilman is one of The Grand Tour. Premiering in 2017, the show had an original three-season order, with the latest of these premiering in January 2019.
Based on new series information, The Grand Tour season 4 will have significant changes with a major production format alteration. Here’s every we know and expect for The Grand Tour season 4.
The Grand Tour Has Been Renewed For Season 4
Last December, The Grand Tour season 4 was confirmed by Amazon. As of now, a specific release date hasn’t been revealed, primarily because of a major production change (more on that next).
The current 13-episode season 3 will conclude on April 5, 2019. Soon thereafter, we’ll likely have more details about The Grand Tour season 4’s release date.
The Grand Tour Season 4 Changes The Format
Amazon will present a new production style for The Grand Tour season 4. When the motor series was renewed, it was revealed that the existing format would be scrapped. Moving forward, the presenters will embark on road trip specials.
This means that The Grand Tour season 4 will have a familiar feel yet entirely new structure. Given that The Grand Tour presenters seem mostly interested in laughs and car talk rather than cultural breakdowns, expect something along the lines of their Top Gear specials rather than anything like a documentary approach.
Amazon Wants To Continue The Grand Tour For Years
Now that The Grand Tour season 4 is committed to a fresh approach, Amazon seems willing to extend the series for multiple seasons. The main group will return for The Grand Tour season 4, and Clarkson has said that "Marvel will be jealous of our budgets.” For audiences, it will be interesting to see whether the presenters fall back on the same humor, or whether these new road trips will inspire new ideas. For now, Amazon has promised that The Grand Tour will continue for “years to come.”
