Amazon Clarifies Future Of Clarkson's Farm As Fans Worry Show Will Be Cancelled

Amazon has provided clarification about the future of Clarkson's Farm.

Concerns have been raised about the future of the reality series, in light of Jeremy Clarkson's statements regarding Meghan Markle.

Jeremy Clarkson, the former host of Top Gear, was compelled to apologize for comments he made in a column for The Sun newspaper regarding the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

In a now-deleted article, the 62-year-old Clarkson made reference to the controversial "shame" scene from the TV show Game of Thrones.

In reference to Prince Harry, Clarkson stated: "I actually feel rather sorry for him because today he's just a glove puppet with no more control over what he says or does than Basil Brush.

"Meghan, though, is a different story. I hate her.

"Not like I hate Nicola Sturgeon or Rose West. I hate her on a cellular level."

He added: "At night, I'm unable to sleep as I lie there, grinding my teeth and dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while the crowds chant, 'Shame!' and throw lumps of excrement at her."

Clarkson's comments were met with significant criticism, with many expressing disgust at his apparent intense disdain for Meghan Markle.

Multiple MPs even called for an apology for the overt display of misogyny in his remarks.

Some also urged Amazon to stop working with him.

However, fans of the series will be relieved to know that this is not the outcome.

The streaming platform confirmed that the second season of Clarkson's Farm will be released on February 10th.

Not only that, but a third season will also proceed as previously scheduled.

Clarkson announced this week that he had personally apologized to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for his offensive remarks.

In a statement shared on Instagram today, he wrote:

"One of the strange things I've noticed in recent times is that whenever an MP or a well-known person is asked to apologise for something, no matter how heartfelt or profound that apology may be, it's never enough for the people who called for it in the first place.

"So I'm going to try and buck the trend this morning with an apology for the things I said in a Sun column recently about Meghan Markle. I really am sorry.

"All the way from the balls of my feet to the follicles on my head. This is me putting my hands up. It's a mea culpa with bells on."

He added that although he usually reviews what he sends out, as any writer should, he was in a rush that day and unfortunately hit the "send" button without review.

"It was a slow rumble to start with, and I ignored it. But then the rumble got louder. So I picked up a copy of The Sun to see what all the fuss was about," he said.

"We've all been there, I guess. In that precise moment when we suddenly realise we've completely messed up. You are sweaty and cold at the same time. And your head pounds. And you feel sick.

"I couldn't believe what I was reading. Had I really said that? It was horrible."
