Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have lived up to expectations.
Amazon has announced The Grand Tour has become the biggest show premiere ever on Amazon Prime Video, dethroning the previous No. 1 show, The Man in The High Castle. Although Amazon won’t disclose just how many viewers The Grand Tour had, it did say “millions of Prime members” streamed the first episode in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Austria, and Japan over the opening weekend. In addition, on the day the show debuted, total new Prime membership signups exceeded all previous days, with the exception of Amazon’s Prime Day.
The show has been well received by viewers, earning high ratings on websites like IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes. A new episode of The Grand Tour will air weekly over the next 11 weeks in the U.S., U.K., Germany, Austria, and Japan. The show will premiere worldwide for Amazon customers in over 200 countries and territories in December.
“The guys are back, doing what they do best – the chemistry between Jeremy, Richard and James is what makes The Grand Tour so entertaining,” said Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon. “Their creativity, along with the amazing production quality and 4K HDR streaming, has Prime members responding in a big way. Kudos and congrats to the whole team.”
