Back in March of this year, James May left the UK to head over to Japan for a number of months to film a new documentary for Amazon Prime. In fact considering that The Grand Tour has a smaller series now, with the last three being around 13 episodes long and the new fourth series is only two, Clarkson, Hammond and May have all embarked on their own TV shows.

James May got back from Japan in June, having spent a while out there recording a new series called ‘James May Our Man in Japan.’ Today, via his Twitter account James May released the official trailer for the show which will be coming in the new year, on January 3rd.

On a related note, The Grand Tour series 4 is kicking off next Friday on December 13th.
