Amazon Prime has just released season 2 of Jeremy Clarkson’s hit series Clarkson’s Farm.
The show has done very well on the streaming site, much to the surprise of Clarkson who was skeptical that people would enjoy it.
He revealed to LADbible: “I thought Clarkson’s Farm would serve up gentle disappointment to fans of The Grand Tour.”
“They’d watch the first one, maybe the first three, and that would dwindle to nobody watching.
“And then obviously the first inkling that all was well was there was a Guardian review the day after it aired, which said it was appalling and dreadful and an insult to farmers, and I thought, ‘The Guardian hate it – I think we’re on to something here.’”
And it seems he puts the success of the show down to his co-star “Kaleb,” sharing that he thinks “he’s an absolute star.”
“And what I love about Kaleb is he just has no airs and graces around me at all, it’s just, ‘You f***ing useless w***er.’
“That happens on a daily basis, and I live in constant fear of upsetting him – which I know I’ve done. I did something yesterday so bad, and I know he’s going to find out, and I couldn’t sleep last night thinking, ‘He is going to be livid with me.’”
The news comes after the sixty-two-year-old’s controversial comments regarding Meghan Markle led to Amazon Prime announcing they would cease working with him.
In case you missed it, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex finally released the full 6 episodes of their bombshell docuseries Harry & Meghan on Netflix.
However, Clarkson didn’t seem to like it at all.
The former Top Gear host spoke out in an op-ed for The Sun. In the piece, Clarkson had some pretty damning things to say about the documentary, and, in particular, Markle.
“I hate her. Not like I hate Nicola Sturgeon or Rose West. I hate her on a cellular level,” he said of Markle.
“At night, I’m unable to sleep as I lie there, grinding my teeth and dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while the crowds chant ‘Shame!’ and thrown lumps of excrement at her.
“Everyone who’s my age thinks the same way,” he added.
Further commentary from the presenter included comments that “younger people, especially girls, think [Markle’s] pretty cool,” which makes him feel even “angrier”.
However now, a few months after Clarkson’s column was published, it was then revealed that the star is set to part ways with Amazon Prime.
The news prompted questions from fans as to whether his hit show Clarkson’s Farm will return to screens.
However, they announced they were still going ahead with the second and third series. The release date of the second series of Clarkson’s Farm was announced by the streaming site as February 10, and they also confirmed a third season will be happening.
And now, season 2 has officially dropped. The synopsis for this season reads: “Jeremy Clarkson, Britain’s best-known but least-qualified amateur farmer is back!
“Another year in the life of Diddly Squat farm begins, and all the regular characters are still here, helping Jeremy as much as they can: Kaleb’s on hand to show him How to Actually Run a Farm, Lisa’s running the shop, Charlie’s always ready to deliver more brutal home truths, and Gerald’s still Head of Security, with his own unique way of expressing himself.
“With farmers across the country facing the impact of Brexit and the impending loss of subsidies, all are forced to diversify and Jeremy’s got big plans: he wants a herd of cows, he wants a load more chickens, and he wants his own restaurant where he can serve up a menu entirely made up of Diddly Squat produce, with the ambition of increasing his annual profit from last year (£144). All farms are busy, but this one is about to get a whole lot busier…”
