Amazon Prime bosses are reportedly ‘planning to renew Jeremy Clarkson’s hit series Clarkson’s Farm for a fourth season’ despite calls for the show to be cancelled.
Since launching in 2021, the show has had huge ratings. Amazon Prime Video viewers see Jeremy as he attempts to transform his huge 1,000-acre Diddly Squat Farm into a working business complete with a farm shop and organic beer brand alongside Cotswold farmer Kaleb Cooper and his team.
Despite high ratings, the show’s future is hanging in the balance after Jeremy sparked a backlash with his column about the Duchess of Sussex in which he said he ‘hated’ the royal.
Following Jeremy’s comments, It was thought that his Amazon show Clarkson’s Farm would end with Season 3, expected in 2024. However, according to the Daily Mail, Deadline reports that the streamer is now ‘preparing to renew the show’, and although ‘a deal is not finalised’ the discussions around a comeback ‘have been positive’.
At the time Clarkson apologised for the article, calling his language ‘disgraceful’. Jeremy said that he emailed the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Christmas Day to apologise over his column in The Sun newspaper.
In a lengthy statement on his verified Instagram account, The Grand Tour presenter earlier said he emailed the couple on Christmas Day to say his language in the column had been ‘disgraceful’ and he was ‘profoundly sorry’.
He said: “One of the strange things I’ve noticed in recent times is that whenever an MP or a well-known person is asked to apologise for something, no matter how heartfelt or profound that apology may be, it’s never enough for the people who called for it in the first place.
“So I’m going to try and buck the trend this morning with an apology for the things I said in a Sun column recently about Meghan Markle. I really am sorry. All the way from the balls of my feet to the follicles on my head. This is me putting my hands up. It’s a mea culpa with bells on.
“Usually, I read what I’ve written to someone else before filing, but I was home alone on that fateful day, and in a hurry. So when I’d finished, I just pressed send. And then, when the column appeared the next day, the landmine exploded.”
