Fans of the Amazon Prime Video show Clarkson’s Farm has enjoyed the second series and it shows with the show breaking viewership records despite recent controversy.
Prime’s \Clarkson’s Farm season 2 has had a record-breaking viewership since it was released earlier this year. The news is according to Bard, the official audience research group and reported on Deadline.
The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire presenter’s farming show which is filmed in the Cotswolds on his 1,000-acre farm Diddly Squat has gained over 4.3million viewers on TV sets making it the most-watched original show since Barb began collecting data on streaming services.
The farming industry was quick to praise the Prime Video show for highlighting issues faced in farming throughout the series with this series focusing on an alternate way farmers can make money with Clarkson aiming to open a restaurant to serve his meat from livestock reared on the farm.
The show displayed issues Clarkson has had to deal with in regard to the local council and a lot of red tapes in order to get to where he wanted to be.
In doing so he’s highlighted issues local farmers face such as TB and its effect on the area with one farm describing how they’ve lost half their livestock to TB.
But Clarkson is not the main attraction of the show, since the first series Kaleb Cooper has become a fan favourite for putting Clarkson in his place.
Lisa Hogan, Charlie Ireland and Gerald also make for great viewing. When you can understand what Gerald is saying – which it seems that many cannot.
Despite reports earlier in the year that Clarkson’s Farm wouldn’t be renewed, fans of the show can look forward to series three of the show, which we can imagine will show Clarkson again trying to get his restaurant open on Diddly Squat Farm.
