Top Gear fans rejoice! James May and Richard Hammond have both rejected offers by the BBC to return to Top Gear, following the offer of a £4 million deal to return to the show.
The Mirror and Gizmodo are reporting that the pair will instead join axed Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson to develop a new car show for Netflix. The Netflix produced program will apparently be revealed within the coming weeks, with the possibility of involvement from former Top Gear producer Andy Wilman.
May and Hammond have previously stated that they would not return to the show without Clarkson, so now they have made good on their word we can all look forward to some more car based antics from the trio.
In March Jeremy Clarkson was fired from Top Gear after internal BBC investigations found that he had punched one of the producers of the show during an unprovoked fight.
It was recently revealed that BBC Radio 1 host Chris Evans will be taking Clarkson’s position on Top Gear, but the BBC have yet to reveal who else will be starring in the new series, which will air in March 2016.
