BBC has announced the remaining Top Gear episodes will be aired later this year, most likely during the summer.

Great news for Top Gear UK fans as BBC2 boss Kim Shillinglaw has disclosed plans to air the remaining three episodes of series 22. However, there won't be any studio scenes as BBC usually records these parts several days before airing the episodes so obviously they weren't able to make them because of the scandal involving Jeremy Clarkson and Top Gear assistant producer Oisin Tymon.

After Clarkson was suspended, BBC asked James May and Richard Hammond to film the scenes without their colleague, but the two refused so these three episodes won't contain any studio scenes. Kim Shillinglaw says the remaining material will likely be aired in the summer.

Top Gear UK is not dead as BBC is currently looking for someone to replace Jeremy Clarkson, with Shillinglaw not ruling out the possibility of hiring a woman to join May and Hammond. However, they could be dealing with a bigger problem as there are some reports indicating the two will quit the show as well and join Clarkson in a new car-themed show somewhere else.
