British media is reporting BBC2's Top Gear show will solider on for at least another three years.

Top Gear producer Andy Wilman recently described 2014 as being a "horrible year" for the show mostly due to Jeremy Clarkson's media faux pas such as the racist remark (using an n-word) during the filming of an episode as well as the controversial Patagonia Special in which one of the featured cars had a "H982 FKL" license plate believed by locals to be a reference to the 1982 Falklands War.

Despite the increasing controversy, Mirror says Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are about to sign a three-year contract extension. The current deal will expire in April but a renewal until 2018 is in the works and a source close to BBC said "all indications are that the contract with BBC Worldwide will be renewed shortly and is likely to run for three years."

As a reminder, series 22 kicked off last Sunday and will contain a total of ten episodes.
