“Clarkson’s Farm” is a British TV documentary series that follows “Top Gear” host Jeremy Clarkson as he tries to run a 1,000-acre farm in the Cotswolds.
Consider this as a fish-out-of-water premise: A celebrity who has built his reputation as a wise, knowledgeable father figure discovers that he has no idea what he’s doing in a new situation. The first season surprised many viewers, with The Guardian describing it as “very enjoyable to watch.”
Clarkson explains in the first episode that he purchased the farm in 2008, and it was previously run by “a chap in the village” who retired in 2019. As a result, he opts to grow it himself.
Cue the accidents, which have included the celebrity electrocuting himself, purchasing a tractor that is too sophisticated for anybody to operate, and generally mucking up things.
However, with the assistance of some professionals, he survives — even though, as he points out early on, farming provides hundreds of ways to die.
If you appreciate the series and believe it accurately portrays agricultural life, you may wonder when more “Clarkson’s Farm” will air. Fortunately, Amazon did approve fresh episodes in July. Here is what we currently know.
Clarksons Farm Season 2 Release Date
Although certain media sites disseminated cancellation rumors, prompting the establishment of a petition for renewal, Jeremy Clarkson confirmed the renewal of “Clarkson’s Farm” on Instagram on July 21.
The next day, Deadline announced that the program had resumed shooting.
However, since the program previously covered a whole agricultural cycle, industry insiders expect viewers will have to wait a little bit longer for Season 2 to premiere on Amazon Prime.
Clarkson said in response to an advertisement posted by the “According to “The Grand Tour’s” Twitter account, it will arrive “Not anytime soon. It will take a year to shoot.
That is how agriculture operates.” And according to the BBC, the first season took two years to finish, including occasional pauses. It fits with Clarkson’s statement that he began his farming endeavor in 2019, as well as the fact that the show’s first season of eight episodes premiered on Amazon Prime on June 11, 2021.
A new season may not take as long since Clarkson has said that COVID-19 was one of the obstacles he and his team experienced throughout the filming process (along with weather and sheep), and perhaps it will be less of an issue in the future. Nonetheless, don’t look for “Clarkson’s Farm” episodes until 2022.
Clarksons Farm Season 2 Plot
According to Deadline, Clarkson aims to broaden his portfolio this season while strengthening his agricultural skills. Meanwhile, cast members have already divulged some season spoilers.
When Clarkson shared photographs of the two cows, he demonstrated that he had expanded the farm’s animal population.
Additionally, Cooper uploaded a photo of a shattered fence on his Instagram with the message, “It was all going so great until someone decided they didn’t like the gate anymore, wonder who that was.”
Clarkson responded, “So frustrating,” while the official Amazon Prime U.K. account tweeted, “Spoiler warning,” accompanied by a sweaty face emoji.
Additionally, viewers can anticipate more of the hijinks that have transformed “Clarkson’s Farm” into what Dan Grabiner, Amazon Studios’ head of U.K. originals, refers to as “Jeremy’s uncensored love letter to farming.”
“It is that realism, charm, and comedy, mixed with the farm’s great personalities, that have contributed to the series’ incredible success with fans,” he said.
None of those things will change, and fans can anticipate more of what they love in Season 2, from the breathtaking views of the English countryside to the humor of Kaleb’s warnings about how tricky sheep can be and how Clarkson bumbled it this time.
