I don’t think a second series has been as highly anticipated as the much-loved Amazon Prime Video show Clarkson’s Farm’. And, it seems Clarkson’s Farm series two is one step closer to being released as Amazon Studios’ U.K head of originals Dan Grabiner revealed they had just wrapped and are in the edit suite.
The farming series sees Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson embark on a journey of learning to farm on his Cotswold farm which he bought back in 2008.
At the Edinburgh TV Festival on Wednesday morning discussing the series Grabiner said: “Because it’s farming and it’s authentic it’s so linked to the seasons and the farming year and the weather and things like that… Season 2 has just about wrapped filming. It looks amazing, I think that’s fair to say.”
To the delight of fans, the head of originals promised more of the show’s real star Kaleb Cooper, who has taken Clarkson under his wing with his knowledge of farming as much as the Grand Tour presenter has done so to him. A real friendship shines through on-screen between the both of them which makes for great viewing.
Grabiner continued. “More Kaleb Cooper, more Gerald. You can understand a little bit more of Gerald this time. I think maybe every season, you’ll understand a few more words of Gerald.”
“It’s going very, very well. And also it’s just great to see someone like Kaleb, he had never been on television before. He’s an authentic – he was the tractor driver who happened to work nearby the farm.
“And I think it just shows you that new talent, particularly that sort of expert, authentic talent can just explode with the right vehicle and the right approach to the show. So I think observing his rise has been really an exciting part of that show.”
Grabiner notes that the show “was intended as you know, not a small show but a relatively kind of contained show and it just grew and grew and grew. And we’re so thrilled that that’s grown into an absolutely enormous global hit with a really, really passionate fan base around it, which has been great.”
Jeremy bought the land on which the 1,000-acre Diddly Squat Farm back in 2008. They were farmed on a contract basis by a local villager called Howard but he retired in 2019. Clarkson then decided to try farming the land himself
