After much positive feedback and reviews, the brand new hit show Clarkson’s Farm has been renewed for a second season, with Jeremy Clarkson confirming the programme will return on his social media pages.
Clarkson’s Farm follows the beloved Grand Tour host as he swaps four wheels and an engine for the much quieter rural countryside to run his own brand new farm in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, England.
However, Clarkson has little to no experience with running a farm or doing farmwork, and as such enlists the help of fellow farmers such as Kaleb Cooper and Gerald, to aid Clarkson in his farming efforts. As expected, sometimes Clarkson’s attempts to run the farm don’t exactly go to plan – which ensues into the chaos and comedy that comes with Clarkson’s household name.
Season 1 of Clarkson’s Farm was certainly a challenge, with one of the worst farming weather periods seen in decades as well as the unprecedented arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic. The farming industry has been one of the worst-hit over the last 18 months, with strong demand for British produce due to supply issues abroad, as well as panic buying occurring at the start of the pandemic. Clarkson certainly has been thrown into the deep end with his farming venture.
Season 1 consists of eight episodes, with each episode dedicated to a farming activity that Clarkson attempts to carry out. With Clarkson’s lack of farming experience, many mishaps follow which makes for great comedy and entertainment. He quickly realises that he will need to rely on his farming experts helping him, as well as his finance manager which he dubs ‘Cheerful Charlie’.
In one of the episodes, Clarkson builds a new farm shop, named ‘Diddly Squat Farm Shop’, which is open to the public in Chipping Norton. The shop sells produce made from the farm, including potatoes, honey and vegetables, and visitors may sometimes catch a glimpse of Kaleb, Gerald or even Clarkson himself. The programme shows how the shop was built, the challenges they had to face, and overall how difficult it is to make a living out of farming. The show is excellent at keeping viewers entertained, and it is a must-watch for those who are fans of Clarkson and his other shows.
Expect more shenanigans and hilarious failures from Clarkson in Season 2. A release date has not yet been given, with Clarkson himself stating on Twitter that since the programme takes around a year to film (due to the farming cycle), viewers have to wait just a while longer for the second season to arrive.
You can watch Season 1 of Clarkson’s Farm exclusively on Amazon Prime Video with an Amazon Prime subscription.
