The Grand Tour is undergoing big format changes with the tent and studio segments being completely replaced by larger scale special episodes. The news segment many fans loved also seem to be a thing of the past.
There is a reason why they only do one or two special episodes a year, and that’s because it takes so much work and time to not only write and film them, but to edit and produce them. This unfortunately means that, according to Executive Producer Andy Wilman, there will only be two episodes a year for the time being.
The first episode, which is currently being edited by Wilman and his team, will be coming out for Christmas this year. While he admits Amazon ultimately has the final say as to when the episodes go up, he expects the second episode to be published Spring time.
“First one’s Christmas,” Wilman says. “Then the next one will be Spring”.
