The next episode of Grand Tour Season 4 arrives in 2021 and will take the hosts to Scotland. Following the release of The Grand Tour Presents: A Massive Hunt in December 2020, the next auto show episode hosted by Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond has been confirmed this year by Amazon Prime Video, but an exact release date is still out. elusive.
The next special of The Grand Tour season 4 was planned to be filmed in Russia, but obviously the pandemic ruled it out. It’s been confirmed that you’ll be seeing episodes filmed a bit closer to the UK’s hosts’ homes for now – but fans of the automotive series surely won’t mind a change of location if that means the special news is coming soon. little faster. .
Here’s everything we know about The Grand Tour season 4, including the release date and theme for the next episode, and what we can expect to see in the future.
The Grand Tour season 4: release date of the next episode
Let’s play the game yes, no yes, the next special will be released later this year no we don’t know when yes we went to scotland no there is no more info at the moment yes we will put you up to date when we know more. # TheGrandTourFebruary 15, 2021
In February 2021, Amazon Prime Video confirmed that a new special of The Grand Tour season 4 in Scotland will have its release date in 2021. No more specific date has been revealed, but you can read the tweet above. for everything Amazon has said on the matter so far.
Previous plans to record an episode in Russia have been put on hold due to the pandemic (see below) – so another special was filmed in Scotland nine days earlier in 2020.
“We did it in an area of Scotland with few people,” co-host James May told BT. “We didn’t really interact with the premises. There were complicated systems in place to clean everything and it was a bit tiring to go through a lot of procedures and being tested every day, but it didn’t bother not filming. honest. “
The hosts couldn’t go to the pub after filming the episode, which must have been a challenge.
While it can be a long wait before the trio and their team can travel to more exotic places, the intention is to continue doing episodes in places where it is easier to be successful. “In the short term, we may have to reduce our travel ambitions and we have a better chance of doing so,” says May. “Better to shoot in the UK and deliver regularly than to promise the land and not deliver anything. The Grand Tour could get a little more national. But it’s still going to be the three of us that’s the important thing. And the cars.”
That bodes well for the future – and who knows, maybe we’ll start seeing episodes of Grand Tour Season 4 land more than once a year.
Episode of the Grand Tour season 4 in Scotland: what we know
To film the next stage in Scotland during the pandemic, the crew formed a bubble and no one caught Covid-19 during filming. It was reported that the hosts had been seen driving classic American cars from Edinburgh to the Hebrides – suggesting some sort of Route 66 type road travel element.
Clarkson was seen driving a blue Lincoln, May was seen driving a red Cadillac, and Hammond was seen in a green Buick. The trio also took part in a drag race on a track somewhere in the south of Scotland, for which the cars mentioned were apparently modified and were also seen towing caravans at one point.
May says it doesn’t matter that much being a little closer to home for the hosts – after all, Amazon Prime Video viewers could watch it from anywhere. “If you watch The Grand Tour of Sri Lanka, Scotland is as exotic and beautiful as Sri Lanka comes from Scotland, so there will always be a large portion of the audience who all over the world will find fascinating.”
And hey, anything that allows hosts to film new episodes faster seems like a good thing.
