Jeremy Clarkson has revealed his new Amazon Original TV show – an eight-part solo series, I Bought A Farm.

A self-confessed "inept townie", the Grand Tour presenter will run his own 1000-acre working farm in the heart of the British countryside.

"Good news! I can finally confirm that I’m going to be spending the next year, in the rain, making a show about farming for Amazon Prime," said Clarkson.

"Of course to be a farmer you have to be an agronomist, a businessman, a politician, an accountant, a vet, and a mechanic. And I'm… none of those things. I don’t even know what agronomist means."

What is I Bought A Farm?

Filmed over the course of the farming year, the series will show Clarkson like you've never seen him before.

Beginning in Autumn 2019, the series will observe the highs and lows of what Jeremy hopes will be a rural idyll but could just as easily become a rustic nightmare.

“Jeremy is one of Britain's finest exports and I think I speak for the entire nation when I say I can’t wait to see what will happen when he turns his usually petrol-covered hands to life on a working farm,” said Georgia Brown, Director of European Amazon Original Series.

“We’re excited to bring this latest UK produced Amazon Original series to Prime Video viewers around the world next year. Wishing you lots of luck Jeremy... what could possibly go wrong?”

While Jeremy has been busy filming his upcoming Amazon Prime Video series about life on the farm, he’s also been stocking the shelves with fresh fruit and veg, flour, eggs, sourdough bread, honey and much more.

In the video, Jeremy has roped in the assistance of girlfriend Lisa Hogan as she sorts through fresh vegetables picked on the farm as Jeremy says they are in the middle of harvesting.

When is Jeremy Clarkson's farm show released on Amazon?

The series is coming to Amazon Prime Video in 2021.

Has The Grand Tour been cancelled?

No. Don’t worry, Clarkson, Hammond and May fans. The trio will be returning later this year with a Madagascar special.

The latest special has finished shooting, but it has been delayed in the edit due to show boss Andy Wilman falling sick with Coronavirus.

Uncharacteristically, James May was first off the mark with his own spinoff series on Prime Video – Our Man in Japan.

Fifteen years after James May first visited Japan as a baffled tourist, he embarks on a quest to understand the unique, extraordinary  and complex country.

He's also working on a second solo series, a cookery show, James May: Oh Cook.

Richard Hammond was the second presenter to confirm their own spinoff series, which will see him teaming up with Mythbusters star Tory Belleci.

The epic six-part series will feature Hammond and Belleci shipwrecked in mysterious circumstances, stranded on a remote yet beautiful desert island.

Rather than sitting around waiting to be rescued, the pair decide to take matters into their own hands as they use all of their engineering and expert scientific prowess not only to survive, but to construct an out-of-this-world, paradise island playground.

The series follows Richard and Tory as they masterfully construct their exotic wonderland using what they have from the shipwreck and what they can find on the island. Each episode will see them take on huge feats of engineering to achieve epic builds in what will be a once in a lifetime operation for the two lovers of science, engineering and making the impossible, possible. The duo’s hare-brained builds will range from island hopping vehicles to a supersized hydro-power waterwheel.

Richard and Tory will be teaming-up for the first time, bringing their daredevil antics and engineering A-games to this pop-science series.
