On the upside, more Chris Harris on YouTube?
 
I know I haven't watched much of the current iteration for various reasons, but it's still sad to think it might end like this. Feels like the end of an era.
 
Unlike ninjacoco, I’ve not watched, because TG simply disappeared from Australian TV years ago. Last I heard Channel 9 here had the rights to broadcast the show but they only played the first couple of seasons, post the departure of Clarkson et al.
Had heard talk of yet another reboot of an Australian version, but that’s been tried 3-4 times and each only lasted a short time due mainly to quite weak hosts.

I think its just suspended, until Freddie heals and the dust settles on the accident paperwork.

Harris is doing the rounds flogging a book and the TG YT site still has the three of them on the masthead.

"Given the exceptional circumstances, the BBC has decided to rest the UK show for the foreseeable future. The BBC remains committed to Freddie, Chris and Paddy who have been at the heart of the show's renaissance since 2019, and we're excited about new projects being developed with each of them. We will have more to say in the near future on this. We know resting the show will be disappointing news for fans, but it is the right thing to do."
"All other Top Gear activity remains unaffected by this hiatus including international formats, digital, magazines and licensing."

BBC flagship show will not return for 'foreseeable future'​

 
Chris is kinda the odd one out. Freddie and Paddy have other shows.

Not heard of Chris doing another show?
