The information was announced by Jeremy Clarkson in his column in the Sunday Times.
There will be big changes in The Grand Tour. During the last episode of season 3 in April this year it was announced that the show will return in a completely new format. In the new episode we won’t be able to see the tent, the public, the racetrack and the car tests anymore. Now every episode will be a big adventure, the so-called Special.
It turns out that only a month after the official start of work on new episodes, the first problems with recording appeared. The film crew was supposed to appear soon in Saudi Arabia to record the material in which they go on a trip to Cairo, the capital of Egypt.
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May were supposed to travel more than 2000 kilometers through the desert. The route led through Sinai and along the Red Sea.
All plans were cancelled due to a possible terrorist attack by ISIS. “This would be an epic journey, except it would mean crossing the Sinai peninsula and, thanks to ISIS, the chances of us all arriving on the other side with heads were slim,” wrote Jeremy Clarkson.
The Grand Tour returns with the 4th season in a few months. Initially it is said that the premiere will take place at the beginning of 2020, but Amazon has not revealed any details about it.
