The Grand Tour is now in its fourth season – but things are a little different this year. If you’d like to know more about this series – including the upcoming Madagascar special episode – then keep on reading.
This is an Amazon Prime Video exclusive – if you’re looking for more things to check out on this streaming platform then check out our lists of the
best films and
best TV shows on Prime right now.
When is the Madagascar Special episode airing?
Whilst we don’t have a firm date on when the second episode in season 4 will be airing, the producer Andy Wilman stated that they’ve given the edited footage to Amazon, so it all depends on how quickly the product can be finished and distributed
according to Digital Spy.
No doubt that the pandemic will be slowing things down, but we wouldn’t be surprised if the Madagascar Special will air sometime in the next few months. Once we have more information, we’ll update this article.
If you’re looking for a taster on what to expect, co-host Jeremy Clarkson
told Globalnews that the episode “begins in La Réunion and then ends largely in Madagascar”. The trio also made headlines when they were marooned on Madagascar for a short while, so we imagine this will be a part of the show.
When is the rest of season 4?
Unlike previous seasons of The Grand Tour, season 4 will only consist of a select few ‘specials’ that take place in various international locations, released sporadically across various months. Episodes will not be released on a weekly basis.
Once this one is released,
Clarkson confirmed on Twitter that the team will head off to film two more episodes once the pandemic passes – but don’t expect much more (if any more) beyond that for the rest of the season.
If you’ve not watched it yet, the premiere episode of season 4 ‘Seamen’ aired in December, and was the South East Asia Special. It was filmed in Vietnam and Cambodia, and filming for the end of the episode was actually disrupted by a monsoon.
The Grand Tour trailers
At the moment there’s no trailer for the Madagascar special episode – however you can see a trailer for the first episode in season 4 if you haven’t watched it.
