They’re back.

Former Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will be creating an all-new car show for Amazon Prime, produced by their longtime producer, Andy Wilman.

The program will go into production soon with the first episode planned for 2016.

In a Tweet, Clarkson said: “I’m very excited to announce that Hammond, May and I have signed a deal with @AmazonVideo”

In March, the BBC announced it would not renew the often-controversial Clarkson’s contract to host Top Gear, after an alleged altercation with one of the show’s producers. British radio host Chris Evans has been named as the new host of Top Gear, one of the BBC’s top programs worldwide.

Hammond Tweeted: “I’ve got a job I’ve got a job I’ve got a job. Haircut, clean jeans and practice driving again. Forrrrwaaaaaaaard!!”

The award-winning team have committed to three seasons as part of the global TV deal.

On working with Amazon, Clarkson said: “I feel like I’ve climbed out of a bi-plane and into a spaceship.”

Hammond added: “Amazon? Oh yes. I have already been there. I got bitten by a bullet ant.”

May said: “We have become part of the new age of smart TV. Ironic, isn’t it?”

Amazon Instant Video offers Amazon Prime members access to stream movies and TV episodes, including Amazon Original Series, available at no additional cost.
