“Prime Gear” followers, mark your calendars for Feb. 17. The 26th season of the motoring present returns to BBC Two this Sunday.
The present’s present spherical of hosts—Matt LeBlanc, Rory Reid, and Chris Harris—return for 5 one-hour episodes, and “Prime Gear” mentioned we are able to anticipate the standard slew of checks and adventures. The 5 episodes will deal with such questions as the perfect supercar options to an property automobile and which is the perfect used luxurious automobile for the worth of a brand new Dacia Sandero. The hosts will even race to the highest of a mountain within the UK’s most cost-effective 4×4 autos, drive throughout Sri Lanka in Tuk-tuks, and watch Harris drift a Porsche 911 GT2 RS. Feels like “Prime Gear” to us.
Season 26 would be the remaining season with the present hosts. LeBlanc shared final yr this might be his remaining season with the present and cited the in depth journey as a significant factor for his leaving. LeBlanc got here aboard the sequence in 2016. Reid will step again as a essential presenter as effectively, and concentrate on the “Further Gear” companion present.
Harris will take over essential presenting duties alongside two new faces to “Prime Gear”: Paddy McGuinness and Freddie Flintoff. McGuinness is an English comic, whereas Flintoff is a former English cricket champion and self-described lover of vehicles. It is going to be fascinating how the brand new hosts develop chemistry. The rapport LeBlanc, Reid, and Harris constructed has confirmed to be a key aspect of the present.
Season 27 will more than likely debut later this yr. Followers may also binge-watch the unique “Prime Gear” trio of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James Might on their new present, “The Grand Tour,” on Amazon Prime. Their third season kicked off final month.
