The real reason behind Amazon’s Jeremy Clarkson ‘cancellation’

18 January, 2023

Amazon is reportedly ending its contract with Jeremy Clarkson, in what appears to be another intervention in the culture wars.

While the presenter admitted that Amazon were “incandescent” over his controversial column in The Sun, there are other reasons for the deal to end. It’s true that the streaming service won’t be working with Clarkson beyond seasons of The Grand Tour and Clarkson’s Farm that have already been commissioned. This does mean, however, that he’ll be on screen in one form or another until 2025. One senior figure connected to Amazon told the Telegraph that “any speculation that this has anything to do with anything like that [Harry and Meghan] is nonsense.” (Amazon is yet to confirm or deny the reports.)
