Amazon Prime Video’s dramatic pastoral thriller “Clarkson’s Farm” has been greenlit for a third season, with production underway.
The show follows former “Top Gear” host Jeremy Clarkson as he relocates from London to the English countryside and tries to manage a farm (called Diddley Squat), with often disastrous results. Luckily, loyal farmers Caleb, Gerald and Charlie – as well as his wife Lisa – are there to help the man dubbed “Britain’s most unlikely farmer”.
The second season of the show, featuring both familiar and new faces, is set to begin in early 2023, and will see the team try to open a restaurant while dealing with new animals and crops, as well as ongoing conflicts with the local council. The farm.
According to local news reports, West Oxfordshire District Council has twice rejected Clarkson’s attempts to open a diner in Diddley Squat, which has attracted thousands of visitors to the farm shop since the series began. Clarkson went ahead, claiming he had found a loophole in the planning rules despite being denied permission to open the restaurant.
An enforcement notice to close was served on him last week, according to reports.
Prime Video has not said when the third season will be released on the stream.
“I’m excited to be doing the third season of Clarkson’s Farm,” said Clarkson. “I’ve got some great new ideas, all of which Charlie, Lisa and Caleb aren’t too happy about.”
Caleb Cooper, who was famously cast following his appearance on the show’s first season, said: “I’m over the moon to be back. Well, they say third time’s a charm! This could be the series where Jeremy finally starts taking advice from a real farmer!”
“Clarkson Farm” is produced by Expectation and executive produced by Peter Fincham and Andy Willman. Zoe Beer is the production director and Peter Richardson is the series producer.
