Clarkson, May, and Hammond are back for another season of their hit motoring show

The first trailer of The Grand Tour’s second season has officially arrived, and as expected, Jeremy Clarkson, James May, and Richard Hammond are up to their old shenanigans. As promised, we also see a what’s what of cars being driven around, including a Bugatti Chiron, a Mercedes-AMG GT R, a Lancia rally car, and since this is The Grand Tour, a military tank of some sorts.

There’s enough good material in this 35-second clip to really get excited about what’s to come. Of particular note though are the clips of Hammond in his Rimac Concept One, the same car he crashed in Switzerland that led to him fracturing his knee. We didn’t get to see clips of the actual accident, but we do get the sight of seeing Hammond start his run up the Hemberg Bergrennen hill climb event back on June 14, 2017. We all know what’s going to happen next, but it would be really interesting to see how the whole accident was captured from the eyes of the show’s production team. Oh, and in case you didn’t notice it, there’s also a monkey in the video. Kind of made we wish they’d use an orangutan instead since Hammond does affectionally refer to Clarkson as one. The second season of The Grand Tour debuts later in the year on Amazon Prime.

Is The Grand Tour’s release schedule still on track after Hammond’s accident?

It does seem like the Hamster is on his way to a full recovery

It’s still hard to say at this point because neither the trio nor Amazon has given any indication on possible delays of the show’s release as a result of Hammond’s accident. We do know that both Clarkson and May have hinted that delays could happen as Jezza writes a revised script for the show and May goes on production stops to fill in for what Hammond was supposed to.

It does seem like the Hamster is on his way to a full recovery so at least we can look forward to seeing him in the second season with his faculties still largely intact.

Hopefully, Amazon drops more trailers of the second season of the show before launching the season entirely. Given the potential delays that have been hinted at, we’re going to need more content to fill the gaps between the intended release date and the actual launch of the show now. The first trailer covered a lot of ground in previewing some of the things we can expect from the show in its second year. Now how about giving us a few more bites of that apple, Amazon?
