The Orangutan, Hamster and Captain Slow are back, but on the web only. After Jeremy Clarkson’s contract was not renewed — he allegedly punch a producer while on a shoot — and his co-presenters James May and Richard Hammond decided not to renew theirs, a bidding war begun among ITV, Netflix, Amazon, and a few others. Ultimately, Amazon won, announcing it on Twitter. The show won’t be called Top Gear, but it will be led by former Top Gear executive producer Andy Wilman.
Wilman told the Radio Times the team would start working on the new show as soon as they’re back from their summer holiday. The show is scheduled to debut online next year.
