UPDATE: Two additional trailers have been released, but they don't offer any more details unfortunately.

Whether you love or hate it, Top Gear is near-essential viewing for gearheads. It's not always easy to enjoy cars these days, but the trio of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond show that entertainment is still out there if you're willing to find it.

So, to coin Mr May himself: "Good news. Top Gear is coming back to our TVs, and the BBC has released a trailer for the new series."

We'll be honest--there's not a lot to see in the video above. Whether it's the driving conditions, the monotonous traffic or the Volkswagen Up he's driving, Clarkson seems distinctly unimpressed by something in the ten seconds or so he's on the screen.

Other cars expected to appear in the series--and if you don't want any spoilers, look away now--are the McLaren P1 hypercar, the 2015 Volkswagen GTI, and the usual budget road trip, this time across Burma and Thailand. There's also a feature on the V8 Supercars racing at Bathurst in Australia, and a trip to a microcar rally in the U.K.

The new season is expected to begin on February 2--rather than the late-January slot Clarkson originally revealed on Twitter, before deleting the tweet--and is likely to air in its usual slot on BBC2, on Sunday nights.
