The rumour mill has been pretty rife ever since Jeremy Clarkson’s instant hit Clarkson’s Farm premiered on Amazon Prime last month, sending fans into a bit of a frenzy as to whether or not Kaleb and Jeremy would be returning for season 2.
Things got even more speculative when both Clarkson and Kaleb were seen with a film crew on the farm creating scenes, however, Amazon themselves have remained schtum on the situation – neither confirming nor denying a series renewal.
Regardless of the situation, Jeremy has set the record straight himself, telling fans “it hasn’t [been renewed] but we are hopeful”, with the Doncaster-born broadcaster advising viewers to “Write to Amazon” if they’d like to see more from Diddly Squat Farm.
Now, fans are taking matters into their own hands – starting petitions left right and centre, with one, in particular, garnering thousands of signature in support.
Popping up on Change.org by a fan under the name of Alexander Allen, one petition reads: “If you’re a long time Clarkson fan there is no doubt that you have watched ‘Clarkson’s Farm’ on Amazon Prime.
“Well…. many of us would like to see a Series 2 of Clarkson’s Farm commissioned by Amazon Prime. Please support us and Jezza himself by signing this petition”
So far, over 2,800 fans have signed, with support continuing to grow as the days go on.
Another petition, this time started by fan Yasmin Pattle, has also garnered over a thousand signatures, saying: “Clarkson has released a statement to say that should we want a second series we will need to try writing to complain to Amazon. Let’s keeps this active and at the forefront of Amazon Prime videos ‘to do list’.
“Get signing for some more humorous ‘winging it’ style farming tv with the one and only Clarkson.”
Fellow fans have left tons of comments in support, calling fan-favourite Kaleb a “star” and even threatening to cancel their Amazon Prime subscription if the show doesn’t get renewed.
Clarkson’s Farm, which was released in full back in June, follows as Jeremy Clarkson takes the reins at the farm he owns in Chipping Norton following the retirement of a team member. Boasting typical Clarkson humour and his usual, silly shenanigans, fans get to watch as the petrol head struggles to grasp life as a farmer over the course of the year, while growing the harvest and dealing with the uncertainty of the pandemic.
Clarkson’s Farm can be streamed in full on Amazon Prime now.
