When will the new season of Clarkson’s Farm get a release date? According to the man himself, it shouldn’t be too long…
Clarkson’s Farm was one of the biggest streaming successes of the pandemic. Amazon apparently wasn’t keen on the concept at first, but after it got the green light and aired on Amazon Prime Video, it quickly went on to become one of the most popular shows on the platform.
Unlike Clarkson’s previous stuff, Top Gear and The Grand Tour, Clarkson’s Farm was very different. We watch Jeremy become a farmer, open a farm shop, and attempt to make his business profitable. It was a stiff learning curve, chock full of gaffs, but by the end of season one, Jezza was apparently finding his feet from him – just not much profit, sadly.
The show was beautifully shot, as you’d expect from a big-budget Amazon/Clarkson productionbut the most surprising thing about Clarkson’s Farm was that it was loved by a lot of people who usually hate everything about Jeremy Clarkson – even the Guardian liked it!
With its smattering of lovable characters and plenty of ups and downs, both fiscally and emotionally, Clarkson’s Farm stuck a nerve with plenty of people. It showed a softer side to Clarkson, a side we seldom get to see, and, more importantly, it shone a light on the many problems modern UK farmers face today, palpably demonstrating just how difficult it is to make a living as a farmer.
With positive reviews all around, praise for Clarkson’s vision, and billions of streams, everyone assumed there would be a second season of Clarkson’s Farm. But shortly after the first season aired, Clarkson said that there wouldn’t be a second season because Amazon had chosen not to renew the show which lead to a huge backlash from fans and a confirmation from Amazon that there would, indeed, be another season of Clarkson’s Farm after all.
Clarkson’s Farm Season 2 Release Date
But when will Clarkson’s Farm season 2 come out? Fans took matters into their own hands after Amazon decided to remain silent on the issue. Asking on Instagram, one fan posted the question: what’s happening with Clarkson’s Farm season 2? Clarkson informed the fan that shooting on season 2 concludes in “mid-July”, followed by editing, so it’ll probably get a release sometime in 2023.
Clarkson did not give an exact date; he probably doesn’t know himself. The shooting schedule for Clarkson’s Farm 2 will have taken the best part of a year, compiling thousands of hours worth of footage, and once that’s done they have to edit it all down into an actual show. If you’ve worked in editing before, you’ll know that condensing down footage into an actual film or TV show is not easy – it’s an art form.
How To Watch Clarkson’s Farm Season 2
If you want to watch Clarkson’s Farm, or the incoming sequel in 2023, the ONLY place to do it is on Amazon Prime Video. Clarkson’s Farm is an Amazon Original, so the only place you will be able to watch it is on Amazon.
Amazon, like Netflix and Disney, and Apple, use its original content to increase subscribers to its service. IP like Clarkson’s Farm, for instance, and The Grand Tour helped Amazon acquire millions of new users in the past several years. For this reason, Amazon isn’t likely to license Clarkson’s Farm to any of its competitors.
You can subscribe to Amazon’s video content in two ways:
- Get Amazon Prime – with Amazon Prime, you get free next-day delivery and access to all of Amazon’s media outlets like Prime Video and Amazon Music, as well as early access to Amazon’s Black Friday and Prime Day sales. Prime membership costs either £7.99 a month or £79.99 a year.
- Get Amazon Prime Video – if you don’t want to sign up for an Amazon Prime membership, you can simply just go for an Amazon Prime Video subscription. Amazon’s Prime Video is cheaper than Netflix, has just about the same amount of content, and will only cost you $8.99/£5.99 per month.
Who’s In Clarkson’s Farm Season 2?
As you’d expect, Jeremy Clarkson will have the starring role in the show. But he will be joined once again by his girlfriend, Lisa Hogan, as well as fan favorite Kaleb Cooper, Charlie Ireland, and the always-awesome Gerald Cooper.
There will almost certainly be new faces and names in Clarkson’s Farm Season 2 but it is nice to see all the cast and crew from the first season of Clarkson’s Farm Season 2 back in the thick of it for season two.
