Amazon’s Top Gear Show Coming in Fall 2016, Episodes Won’t Be Released All at Once

You Probably Won't Be Able to Binge Watch Amazon's New Top Gear

-There is still a lot to process about the ​Top Gear​ team re-emerging on Amazon instant video. Questions like when will we see the show? Will it all be released at once? Why did they decide to go with Amazon?

We’re now starting to get the answers that we crave, as former ​Top Gear​ producer and new Amazon employee Andy Wilman has started to talk about the new project.

First, we’ll see the show in fall 2016, where it’ll start streaming on the online service. Amazon purchased three seasons of the show, 12 episodes per season, 60 minutes per show, just like old ​Top Gear.

But it doesn’t sound like an entire season will be released all at once. Wilman said “​We’re a one trick pony, I wouldn’t watch 12 episodes in a row​.” And unlike other shows on streaming services, a ​Top Gear-​ style show lends itself to a weekly release rather than an entire season at once. Studio segments, news, and other bits are better to have up to date than all at once.

As for chatting with ITV, Wilman says they had talks, but they are prevented from broadcasting the show on a terrestrial station in the UK for two years.

And on that bombshell…
