Jeremy Clarkson has been fired by Amazon after what has been described as a “fracas” with his producer. While many fans had been very excited to see Amazon Prime's spiritual successor to Top Gear it seems that Clarkson has been removed from the project due to a falling out with the series producer. James May and Richard Hammond have also agreed to leave in order to show solidarity with Clarkson.
What Actually Happened?
The exact details of Clarkson's falling out with his producer are unknown, but before it had been revealed that his contract had been terminated as a result, Clarkson dismissed it as a “fracas”. An attempt has been made to contact the show's producer, but he has been unable to comment due to medical reasons. It is known that he was recently admitted to hospital and is now in a coma – the cause of this coma is currently unknown. Rumours indicate that his producer may have had the staff at Clarkson's hotel serve him some wine at room temperature, rather than the recommended chilled serving.
Fans should not despair, however, as Amazon Prime have revealed that they will continue with the project even without Clarkson, May and Hammond and the first season has been completed and will be released as planned. Rumour has it that Mathew Perry may be on board to host the second season, but as of yet nothing is confirmed. Some reports also indicate that Clarkson may have been approached by Netflix, who have plans to create some kind of spiritual successor.
Ha! I didn't have you going for even a second did I?
This article is just a joke and you've been Voucher Monkeyed! Jeremy Clarkson's unnamed Amazon show will go ahead and he's also actually apologised to his old BBC producer and given him £100,000 so that's a nice sign of good faith. Everyone has the capacity to learn from their mistakes and he has done so. Let's not hold this one thing against him.
It's quite interesting to think about all the television shows which have been given an extended life thanks to Internet streaming systems. Beyond this Top Gear successor, we've also gotten more of Arrested Development, Community, Ripper Street and lots of other excellent shows thanks to the dedication of fans and these online streaming sites. It's wonderful that these shows can continue after what, ten years ago, would have been there end. We live in an age where nothing truly comes to an end, as it seems like it's always only a matter of time before things make their exciting returns. If were to ask me, that's a wonderful thing.

Sorry my article is a bit late this week. The staff lost the key to my cage on Friday, so I couldn't get out to write anything yesterday. Luckily, one of the cleaners found it after everyone went home and then let me out. Now that I'm out and I've got the rest of the weekend ahead of me, what shall I do? I guess I'll just smash up the office. Oh, and be sure to use our Amazon voucher codes so that you can save money on Amazon Prime and enjoy Jeremy Clarkson's new show!
