Grand Tour and former Top Gear presenter James May continues his journey across the globe to learn about the culture, architecture, and traditions of various countries. The first season took James to the Land of the Rising Sun, Japan. This time, he’s going to be exploring the birthplace of the racecar, Italy!
The second season was originally planned to be set in the United States of America but the Corona Virus brought a ton of issues with traveling and the logistics of the show and so plans had to be changed.
James May explaining why the Our Man series can’t be done in America for now and as well as dropping a few ‘subtle’ hints for the show’s new location
We’ve suspected that the second location was going to be Italy for quite some time now. But only yesterday did Amazon Prime Video UK and The Grand Tour YouTube channels release a trailer and a release date for the second season, confirming our suspicions.
