Here's some good news for Top Gear fans in desperate need of new Clarkson/Hammond/May shenanigans: Jeremy Clarkson says filming on the trio's new show is set to start soon.

Sorry about the lengthy absence from Twitter. These are very very very busy times. Fun though.

To be clear, May is busy with other stuff but Hammond, Wilman and I are extremely busy putting our new show together.
Much is already sorted

To be even more clear, filming starts in a couple of weeks. And yes, all of us will be involved.

It's still unclear what the new show, which is headed directly to Amazon Prime, will be called. an obvious pun directed at the Kevin Spacey Netflix original series, while more recent reports posit the title "Gear Knobs." 

With a reported budget of $250 million—or nearly $7 million per episode—it's obvious that the lads are getting a big raise compared to their BBC contracts. Just don't plan on binge-watching the show: producer Andy Wilman says new episodes will come out one at a time, rather than a whole season at once.
