The Grand Tour’s fourth season is set to return with another 60-minute special set around the Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
The show’s three hosts spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk during promotion for the second episode of season four, A Massive Hunt.
Clarkson, Hammond and May’s search for pirate treasure was essential viewing for petrolheads over the Christmas season, but left many fans wanting more.
The series’ current season had already been delayed earlier in the year when producer Andy Wilman fell ill with COVID-19.

Thankfully, it appears the wait between new episodes won’t be nearly as long as the gap of over a year since the previous special, Seamen, was released by Amazon.
When asked about the future of the series amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Clarkson confirmed The Grand Tour will be remaining in the UK for the time being.
He said: “Well, we have just done a big show here in the UK, so that answers that one.”
Although details about the new special are scarce, the former Top Gear trio will once again take on a challenging trek in three classic cars.
“I would love to be in Zimbabwe right now, or Iran, or any other handful of countries I haven’t been to and ticking them all off. But, I’m not.”
The team were spotted in the Outer Hebrides area back in October, and were accused of breaching COVID guidelines with an alleged ‘after party’ after filming.
However, the hotel they were staying at, Dark Island Hotel, promptly took to Twitter to reject these claims.
They said: “We would like to make it clear that there is no ‘after party’ being held at the hotel and that all members of the Grand Tour team are following the same rules and guidelines put in place for everyone, including the curfew of 10pm for hospitality and licensed premises.”
“The Grand Tour have been exemplary in their approach to COVID-19 and have communicated with the relevant local authorities for this event to happen.”
The hosts and crew were also reportedly tested throughout the filming procedure, ensuring the shoot took place within the bounds of health and safety guidelines in place at the time.
Producer Wilman has since recovered from his period of illness, so it’s hoped the new episode will hit screens at some point in the first half of 2021.
