Amazon is set to launch Jeremy Clarkson's show, "The Grand Tour," this November.

Starring Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, the show will be released on November 18 and will see a new episode released every Friday for a period of 12 weeks.

"The Grand Tour" will be made available only to Amazon Prime Video subscribers. This restricts its UK audience to just a portion of those who tuned in to Top Gear when Clarkson, May and Hammond presented the show on BBC2. Despite the restriction, Amazon still hopes that the show will be able to attract new subscribers globally.

According to reports, the premiere episode will feature studio scenes that will be shot in a tent in California later this September. Top Gear executive producer Andy Wilman revealed at the Edinburgh International Television Festival last August that about 90% of the location filming had already been completed. He left with the trio last month to grace the festival and showed an extended montage featuring Clarkson driving through a "Game of Thrones" shooting location, May shooting an assault rifle out of the rear window of Clark's car, and Hammond waking up and finding himself inside a dune transporter flown under a helicopter.

"Customers have been desperate to find out when they can watch their favorite team back on screen, so we are very excited to announce the launch date of one of the most globally anticipated shows of 2016," said Amazon Prime Video EU vice president Jay Marine at the festival.

He also revealed that the trio have been having a blast filming the series around the world, so they cannot wait for fans to see the show on a weekly basis from its premiere date.
