Just yesterday we brought you word that Top Gear would be returning to the airwaves on Sunday, January 27, at least for viewers in the United Kingdom. In case you can't wait that long, this teaser clip (available outside of the U.K.) gives you a flashback to clips from last season.

As for Season 19, all we know for sure is that Clarkson, Hammond and May take an epic road trip in North America and film a Christmas (or more accurately, holiday) episode that will air in February. Aside from that, you can expect plenty of snark from Clarkson, as well as a plethora of hamster jokes directed at Hammond.

We're sure The Stig will be back in all of his silent-but-fast glory, and its a safe bet that the "Star in a reasonably priced car" segment will return, too. We're not sure that Season 19 will feature anything as epic as the showdown between the BMW-engined Brutus and a Spitfire-engined Bentley that never was, but somehow the show never manages to disappoint.

Unlike Top Gear USA, which seems to change formats (and lose viewers) with each passing season, the original Top Gear knows what its fans expect, and Season 19 will surely deliver the goods once again. Frankly, we can’t wait.
