The last few episodes of Top Gear season 22 were put on hold after Jeremy Clarkson was fired for his altercation with producer Oisin Tymon, with the BBC previously telling us that the episodes would likely air in the summer. Now those final episodes have been filmed and hopefully we’ll get to see them soon. Clarkson’s former co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond were recently spotted in the U.K. filming the remaining segments required for the final episodes.
According to the Telegraph, Hammond and May have been offered deals to continue with the show but many believe they’ll stick with Clarkson and turn them down. If they don’t sign new contracts with the BBC then these will be the last of the episodes with any part of the well-known trio. All three of the hosts are out of contract at this time and Clarkson was not offered a renewal due to his now-famous fracas.
Rumors are abound that the trio may be moving to Netflix together to start a new show called "House of Cars", but no confirmation has been received from any of the parties. Adding to the rumors is the fact that long-time producer of Top Gear Andy Wilman has also left the show and may be pursuing other opportunities alongside Clarkson. We do know the famous trio will work together on scheduled Top Gear Live shows, now referred to as "Clarkson, Hammond, and May Live".
The question now is, will May and Hammond continue on Top Gear without Clarkson? Of course, the BBC may—and most likely will—simply go with three new hosts.
