Last week, we speculated Jeremy Clarkson would land at Netflix—and now we have new info suggesting that's exactly what's going to happen.
The Mirror is reporting that he and co conspirators Richard Hammond and James May—along with former Top Gear producer Andy Wilman—are close to a deal with the streaming service to host their next endeavor. The name is said to be House of Cars, a play on the company's smash hit House of Cards.
Obviously, landing the trio would be a huge win for Netflix.
And while there's no indication of what would be different about the new show, since Netflix isn't bound by broadcast standard, viewers might get to hear their frequent profanity in all its glorious detail, as opposed to the bleeps which punctuated their exchanges on the BBC.
Another potential upshot for fans if the deal goes through? If Netflix follows the formula it has with its other series—and there's no reason to expect it won't—the entire season will be available at once. Who wouldn't want to spend an entire weekend binge watching the three musketeers play with the planet's most desirable vehicles?
For now, Clarkson, Hammond, and May are busying themselves preparing to host their upcoming series of live dates, creatively titled Clarkson, Hammond and May Live!
With the BBC set to begin a new era of Top Gear with a fresh cast, and the knowledge that the old crew isn't quite done yet, it's a good time to be a fan of automotive enthusiast programming. Stay tuned for more info.
