Series Returns to BBC AMERICA and AMC+ on April 25
The first two episodes of the upcoming season of Top Gear, premiering Sunday, April 25 at 8pm ET/7c on BBC AMERICA and AMC+, are now available to view on Screeners.com, with additional episodes becoming available on a weekly basis. In addition, the press kit for the new season is accessible here.
In their fourth season at the wheel, hosts Freddie Flintoff, Chris Harris and Paddy McGuinness hit the road again in a series of challenges designed to push them and their cars to the limit. This season sees the trio tackling the thorny issue of ‘mid-life crisis’ cars, heading to the Scottish Highlands on a punishing off-road adventure, celebrating and driving some of the most iconic cars from the James Bond films, and taking a nostalgic trip down memory lane as they drive their dads old cars. Additionally, these four, all-new episodes feature reviews of the new Lamborghini Sian, the Toyota GR Yaris and the Ferrari Roma.
