The second series of Jeremy Clarkson’s show, Clarkson’s Farm, was a big hit with viewers but what can we expect from the third season?

The Amazon Prime show sees the former Top Gear presenter swap cars for cattle as he tries to run the 1,000-acre farm in the Cotswolds that he brought in 2008.

The third and likely final season of the show is expected to be released in early 2024.

It will cover the 2022/23 farming calendar.

Both Mr Clarkson and Amazon Prime have already given fans a few hints of what will be included in the next series.

Here is everything that we know so far:

New animals?


Mr Clarkson himself has already given a couple of hints that the third season will feature the welcoming of new animals to the farm.

He has previously taken on sheep, cows and chickens.

When one fan complained on Twitter about the length of the Diddly Squat Farm Shop queue, the 62-year-old responded: "I’m sorry it’s so long.

“I’d come over if I wasn’t feeding the pigs.

“And if I didn’t have such a massive hangover."

Earlier this month Mr Clarkson also confessed in his column for the Sunday Times that he has sleepless nights over taking his animals to slaughter.

He was forced to say goodbye to seven of his male pigs.

The former Top Gear presenter wrote: “I can never sleep properly the night before they go, and all the way to the slaughterhouse I have what feels like a hot cricket ball in the pit of my stomach.

“And then when it’s finally time to say goodbye, I always become a little bit unmanly.”

“I know that I’m trying to be a farmer and that this is what farmers do. And I know I will enjoy the bacon and ham and pork chops that result.”

However, Clarkson is yet to confirm directly whether pigs will feature in season three of Clarkson’s Farm.

New faces?


Amazon Prime Video has confirmed that season three will see the return of the show’s favourite characters.

Kaleb Cooper, Mr Clarkson’s wife Lisa and Cheerful Charlie will all be back on our screens.

The streaming service has also teased that we may be seeing some new characters as well.

Ongoing planning battles


Filming for the third and final season is already underway and it is therefore the new series could touch on Mr Clarkson's ongoing battle with West Oxfordshire District Council.

The council has refused a number of Mr Clarkson’s planning applications including those for a car park and a restaurant.

In March, Mr Clarkson launched an appeal against the decision and a hearing was held later in the month.

Although cameras were not seen inside the planning hearing, it is likely that his tribulations with the council will continue to feature in the show.
