Amazon Releases ‘Grand Tour’ Season 2 Teaser for Prime Day Shopping Extravaganza

Amazon is pouring gasoline on the hype bonfire for its Prime Day shopping event by releasing a first-look teaser for “The Grand Tour” season two — available only to Prime members.

The 35-second teaser shows Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May motoring through locales in Mozambique, Switzerland and the U.K. Amazon Prime members can view the exclusive footage at primevideo.com/GTPrimeDay.

Amazon hasn’t announced a premiere date for season two of “The Grand Tour” starring the trio — former hosts of the BBC’s long-running “Top Gear” series — but says it will hit later this year. Amazon Studios has a three-season deal with Clarkson, Hammond and May for the show.

While filming the second season in Switzerland last month, Hammond was involved in a major accident in which the electric vehicle he was driving burst into flames. Clarkson called it the “biggest crash I’ve ever seen and the most frightening,” but Hammond sustained no life-threatening injuries.

Like Netflix, the e-commerce giant does not divulge viewing metrics for its streaming-video service. For what it’s worth, Amazon says “The Grand Tour” season one broke records when it debuted in November 2016, becoming the biggest show premiere ever on Amazon Prime Video.

Amazon’s third annual Prime Day kicks off Monday at 9 p.m. ET, offering hundreds of thousands of product deals exclusively for Prime members worldwide, in categories including electronics, clothing, DVDs, beauty, books and furniture. The Prime Day event — which actually spans 30 hours — has expanded to 13 countries this year: the U.S., U.K., China, Japan, India, Spain, Mexico, Italy, Germany, France, Canada, Belgium and Austria.

In the U.S. alone, Amazon has close to 79 million Prime members, up from about 66 million at the end of 2016, according to investment research firm Morningstar. Amazon Prime costs $99 annually in the U.S. The company also separately sells Prime Video subscriptions for $8.99 monthly in the U.S. and $5.99 per month elsewhere.
