Good News! Delayed 'Top Gear' Episodes Will Reportedly Air

If you haven't been paying attention, the BBC's Top Gear has been all over the news... and not for all the good reasons. Leading man and co-presenter Jeremy Clarkson was suspended following 'a fracas' with a producer, casting doubt on whether the remaining episodes of season 22 would be broadcast. The latest news direct from Top Gear noted that filming for the upcoming episodes is being delayed, pending the outcome of the BBC's investigation into the incident, however The Sunday Times Driving is reporting that motoring fans will indeed eventually see these 'lost episodes.'

The insider confirmed that senior producers of the motoring program have continued to edit pre-shot footage of the remaining episodes, which will air regardless of the investigation's findings. The show's return date to TV screens is however unknown. The remaining episodes were pegged to feature a budget classic convertible film as well as a cheap SUV challenge, along with Stars in the Reasonably Priced Car: Gary Lineker and Henry Cavill. If you were holding out for the much speculated Ferrari LaFerrari vs. McLaren P1 vs. Porsche 918 Spyder track test... your patience might be rewarded. The unnamed BBC source noted that Top Gear staff are continuing to push toward green-lighting the hypercar test and may release that feature as a bonus episode.
