BBC Officially Confirms LeBlanc, Harris & Reid As Top Gear Hosts For 2017

We all knew it deep down but now BBC confirmed that the 2017 season of Top Gear will be hosted by Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid.

They will be joined from Eddie Jordan and Sabine Shmitz in select episodes, as well as one of the biggest stars of the show: The Stig.

American actor LeBlanc has agreed to host the show for the next two seasons. Patrick Holland, Channel Editor, BBC Two says: “I am thrilled that Matt LeBlanc is returning to Top Gear. He’s a huge talent whose love of cars is infectious. I can’t wait for the series to return to BBC Two next year.”

Last year Chris Evans quit the show after failing to persuade audiences in the role of Top Gear’s main host, leaving the rest of the team behind. Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid received positive reviews as hosts of the revamped show.

“Matt was hugely popular with Top Gear viewers last series with his humour, warmth and obvious passion for cars and for the show, so I couldn’t be more delighted that he’s agreed to come back and do more for us”, said Mark Linsey, Director, BBC Studios.

The 24th season of Top Gear will return to BBC Two next year. It’s safe to expect some changes in the format of the show which is going to be rivaled by The Grand Tour of Clarkson, Hammond and May, set to debut on November 18th on Amazon Prime.
