Chris Evans Confirms New Top Gear Season For May 8

The former Top Gear trio may no longer be with BBC, but the world’s most famous car show, at least until Clarkson, May and Hammond return with a new show on Amazon, will live on with its new presenter, Chris Evans.

The 49-year old radio and television producer will start his new role with BBC on May 8, 2016, a few days after filming finishes, as he recently confirmed during an interview with James Martin, on BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen.

We’re going to America to make our first inter-continental in January“, said Chris Evans who didn’t mention anything about his co-presenters. However, a previous report indicates that he might be the only presenter on Top Gear.

The Guardian reports that the new Top Gear season will have 16 episodes and will be broadcasted on BBC2 next year.

In the meantime, BBC will not ignore the Top Gear audience this Christmas as the TV network will air a special episode with Clarkson, Hammond and May, using footage already filmed from the past 13 years, voiced by John Bishop and presented by guest stars.

Jezza, Captain Slow and the Hamster have signed a deal with a new show for Amazon, after Jeremy’s “fracas” incident. Filming has apparently begun as the three of them are believed to use the LaFerrari, 918 Spyder and P1 in a comparison for the show’s first episode.
