<span style=”font-weight: 400;”>A few years ago, Jeremy Clarkson’s name was synonymous with fast cars and Top Gear – but nowadays, he’s more often associated with farming. That’s all thanks to Clarkson’s Farm, a Prime Video series which documents his journey to taking over – and running – a 1,000 acre farm in the Cotswolds, which he nicknamed Diddly Squat. The first two seasons have been hugely popular, with the second becoming the most-watched original series on Amazon in the UK in 2023. And now we have a release date for the much-anticipated season 3: here are all the details.
Clarkson’s Farm Season 3: Everything We Know So Far
What Will Season 3 Of Clarkson’s Farm Be About?
For those not familiar with the premise of the show, Clarkson’s Farm follows the presenter-turned-farmer as he learns the ins and outs of farming. He runs the farm alongside his girlfriend Lisa Hogan, plus farmer Kaleb Cooper, the standout character from the series – and along the way, they have had to grapple with a number of issues, from unresponsive crops to bad weather and a global pandemic. One of the biggest issues played out in the show has been a long-standing dispute with the council over the introduction of a restaurant at the farm, which was forced to close down soon after opening.
In season 3, the team will face a new set of challenges, including a rise in prices for farm supplies, failing crops due to the hot weather, and dreams for the beloved restaurant being dashed. Prime Video has said the new series will: ‘follow Clarkson as he taps into 513 acres of land on Diddly Squat, including woodlands and lakes, which have yet to be touched.’ Could this mean new animals for the farm? Or perhaps a brand-new venture now the restaurant is no more?
Which Characters Are Returning?
Prime Video has also confirmed that all the favourites will be returning. Alongside Clarkson himself, Cooper and Hogan will feature, alongside Gerald Cooper, the farm’s head of security, and ‘Cheerful Charlie’, Clarkson’s adviser and land agent. We’ve also been told new characters may be joining the show, but these are yet to be announced.
‘I’m genuinely thrilled that we are doing a third season of Clarkson’s Farm,’ said Clarkson, joking: ‘I’ve had some great new ideas, all of which have made Charlie, Lisa and Kaleb deeply unhappy.’
Cooper has also spoken about his excitement for the new season, saying: ‘I’m over the moon to be taking part again. Well, they do say third time’s a charm! Maybe this will be the series that Jeremy finally starts taking advice from a real farmer!’
He also told The Times him and Clarkson have their biggest ever bust-up, saying: ‘No spoilers, but series three shows our biggest ever falling-out, because that man has just got to learn to listen to me. One of my favourite things is watching Jeremy get electrocuted on one of his own fences and last time it happened, I was thinking, “That’s my role really — I need to be his electric fence, stopping him doing silly things.”’
And, on an appearance on Good Morning Britain, Kaleb admitted Clarkson is actually a good farmer, saying: ‘I can’t say too much because I’ll be told off, but the farm’s still going. Jeremy’s bought some pigs this year. He has also got goats. They’re basically like sheep, aren’t they? And I hate sheep. But the pigs are really good. And annoyingly, he’s a really good pig farmer.’
When Is Season 3 Of Clarkson’s Farm Coming Out?
It has just been confirmed that Clarkson’s Farm season 3 will arrive on Prime Video on 3 May 2024.
Will There Be A Season’s 4 Of Clarkson’s Farm?
Yes, Clarkson has now confirmed Amazon has given the green light for a fourth season of Clarkson’s Farm. This follows months of speculation over whether Prime Video would renew the series, following the backlash against Clarkson’s controversial column about Meghan Markle. Published in The Sun, it became ISPO’s most complained article of all time – prompting many to wonder whether the streaming platform would cut ties with Clarkson. However, in a recent Instagram post, Clarkson announced the series will be returning for a fourth season. In the video, we see the presenter attempting to herd sheep at the farm into the shape of a four, which doesn’t quite work, but the message got through nonetheless.
Seasons 1 and 2 of Clarkson’s Farm are available to watch on Prime Video
