The Grand Tour New Special Revealed

After a couple of years hit by lockdowns and travel restrictions, The Grand Tour is heading back on the road once more for a chilly adventure.

Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond will return in 2022 with A Scandi Flick, an adventure across Scandinavia and the Arctic Circle.

The trio have previously ventured into the snow for a Grand Tour studio episode in Kakslauttanen in Finland and for a famous Top Gear Polar special in 2007, when they raced to the Magnetic North Pole in Canada.

In this new 2022 special, the boys will be spending their time travelling across the beautiful coutry of Norway to a final destination on the Russian border.

It promises to be an eventful special because news has already broken about James May suffering injuries in a dramatic crash while filming a stunt for the series.

The Special will release on prime video September 16th 2022 at Midnight 1:00am Irish Time.

In the first episode of season 5 and their first post-pandemic road trip, Jeremy, Richard and James head for the icy wastes of the Scandinavian Arctic Circle.

At the wheel of their three favourite rally cars the boys embark on a catastrophe-filled adventure that takes in Cold War submarine bases – frozen lake racetracks, crashes and ski resort chaos as they drag their homemade houses from the coast of Norway to the Russian Border. 

Clarkson, Hammond and May have finished shooting the next Grand Tour special in Norway.

Talking to about the next special in 2021, executive producer Andy Wilman said: “We were going to do a big Russian, snowy winter one before Boris Johnson said ‘Everybody go home’.

“That was March 2020, and that film will never come back so we’re talking about going up to Scandinavia, up to the Artic Circle – fingers crossed. We want to do that in the snow so it’s got to be this coming winter.”

Richard Hammond confirmed in an interview with the Radio Times that they had finished shooting in Norway and were already planning another new special.

Jeremy Clarkson has also posted a couple of photos from their Scandanavian adventure on his Instagram page.

A Scandi Flick is the first Grand Tour special in season 5.

After season 3, The Grand Tour closed down its touring tent and the team stopped filming their regular studio series.

Clarkson, Hammond and May decided to change to doing regular road trip specials instead.

The change in format was down to the popularity of their globetrotting specials and it also allowed them to spend more time on their own solo TV projects such as Jeremy’s agricultural adventure Clarkson’s Farm.

All the previous specials released so far have been classified under season 4 on Prime Video.
