The boys are back for more adventures

You might have forgotten about it because of how good The Grand Tour has been in its second season, but Top Gear is actually still around. The hit British motoring show has been off the air for a year, but it’s ready to return with a vengeance. The show will have the same hosting crew from the last time we saw it. That means we can expect a lot of fun and good times from Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris, and Rory Reid.

For the new season, the presenting duties will once again be done by Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris, and Rory Reid

For the new season, the presenting duties will once again be done by Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris, and Rory Reid. The three hosts are returning for a second season, signaling a return to normalcy that has been absent from the show over the last few seasons. Judging by the new trailer, it looks like the BBC can breathe a sigh of relief now.

LeBlanc, Harris, and Reid have chemistry. It’s not exactly on the level of Clarkson, Hammond, and May, but it has the potential to get there with more time together. If anything, we already saw hints of that chemistry last season, and it looks like it’s carried over to the new season.

The 60-second spot also reveals some of today’s hottest cars. There’s a lot of them, too. We see a BMW M5, Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 LE, McLaren 720S, Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Ford Mustang, Kia Stinger, and an assortment of old-school Rolls-Royce and Bentley models. We also get decent helpings of unusual machinery, including a tractor that’s being trashed and another with enormous wheels on it. I’ve no idea what the latter is, but it looks fun to drive.

There’s no premiere date yet for Top Gear’s 25th season

But the best parts of the trailer are the hosts, specifically how they look to be having a legitimately good time around each other. We haven’t seen that many smiles and giggles on Top Gear since the days of the old hosts, so it’s a welcome sight seeing LeBlanc, Harris, and Reid on the same page. Oh, and let’s not forget about The Stig. He also makes an appearance in the trailer, as does his Japanese cousin, Kung Fu Stig.

There’s no premiere date yet for Top Gear’s 25th season. Expect an announcement to be made soon.
