Report: BBC2’s Top Gear to return to the screen on May 8 in the UK

The Guardian recently received confirmation from the BBC that the world-famous Top Gear television show will be showing its first episode with its new host, Chris Evans, in May of 2016–May 8 to be exact.

The BBC’s most popular show and the most widely watched factual television program in the world has been in a hiatus ever since the show’s main host, Jeremy Clarkson, was kicked off due to a snafu with a producer. As a part of Clarkson’s departure, his running mates, James May and Richard Hammond followed, on the basis of team loyalty.

Following the whole debacle of Clarkson vs. Producer, the BBC then held a series of contests and auditions for the host of the new Top Gear and taking the cake was the UK’s very on, Chris Evans.

Evans will be hosting the show by his lonesome, with the only other regular on-screen character being the original Stig.

The new season of Top Gear is scheduled to have a total of 16 episodes while being aired on the BBC2 once a week.
