The grand tour Russia special will be replaced by a massive Scandinavian flick!
Mr wilman has some Arctic camo plans.
The filming of the grand tour russian special was postponed due to covid in the past, as we know - instead we got the wonderful Scotland special and the upcoming "carnage a trois" . But now due to the same reason its cancelled again and is been replaced by a tough trip across the Arctic circle.
Producer Mister Wilman said while talking to metro.co.UK "It would be back to being a proper road trip, but it will be across the Arctic Circle and it will be tough – at least I hope we will be tough because we’ll be going in the depths of winter."
Addressing the Russia trip, he added: "We’re not going to try that one again. Because for the next foreign special we want to go into the snow"
"So we want to go up into Scandinavia to do that"
"There’d be no room for the Russian one as well, because that was all about snow and being in that environment.
We have to plan five or six months ahead. And right now with Norway, Sweden and Finland, we can plan what the entry requirements are.""We know what they want Covid wise.
"But we want to shoot one in the Autumn and one in February because if we don’t we’re not producing any content."
Although a Russian special could've been a fantastic one..... the cold Scandinavian one won't be less fun either! With all the beauty of the Arctic circle making the special one of the most gorgeous of them all ,the trio tackling the extreme weather will be a thing to see. Clarkson becoming a santa, Hammond riding a reindeer, northern lights! ,Tent stories about James may being a 6 ft sinus may return ,We could get to see some specially modified snow vehicles too!
should it be named the Scandinavian flick?
