Jeremy Clarkson is reportedly set to sign a lucrative new deal with Amazon for three additional series of Clarkson’s Farm. Although nothing has been officially signed yet, it is expected that the deal, likely to exceed $250 million, will be announced around the release of the third series in March or April next year, according to reports from the Daily Mail.
Clarkson’s Farm, showcasing the presenter’s efforts to manage Diddly Squat Farm near Chadlington, garnered immediate success upon its debut in 2021. The second series, which became Prime Video’s most-watched original show in the UK when it started streaming in February, has further solidified the program’s popularity.
Friends of the presenter have suggested to the newspaper that Clarkson might consider focusing exclusively on Clarkson’s Farm rather than continuing his other shows, The Grand Tour and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
Filming for the third season officially concluded in October, with Amazon Prime yet to confirm the exact release date, stating only that it will be sometime in 2024. Clarkson previously estimated in February that the show would likely return 18 months from then.
Clarkson’s partner, Lisa Hogan, has also hinted at the possibility of a fourth season, responding with a thumbs-up emoji to a fan’s inquiry on her Instagram.
Despite contemplating selling Diddly Squat Farm due to various challenges, including failed crops and adverse weather conditions, Clarkson decided to keep it. His latest book, “Diddly Squat: Pigs Might Fly,” released last month, quickly became a bestseller. Additionally, he filmed a final special of The Grand Tour in Botswana this summer, set to be aired next year.
