Clarkson's Farm is returning for a second series on Amazon Prime despite star Jeremy Clarkson describing his farm as an "expensive failure".

The show was the streaming service's highest rated show ever, but Jeremy explained that the farm is bringing him in no money.

Filming for the second series has already started, and viewers will get a deeper insight into another year on the Diddly Squat Farm.

Jeremy is aiming to diversify and expand his very limited agricultural knowledge while his no-nonsense team watch on.

He'll be joined by tractor driver Kaleb, stone wall expert Gerald, advisor "Cheerful" Charlie, Jeremy's other half and farm shop-keeper Lisa, as well as many others.

There will be more laughs, triumphs and, of course, tribulations, while Jeremy drops more faux pas as he continues down his agricultural adventure.

The former Top Gear host said: "I'm absolutely delighted that, once again you'll be able to spend some time with Cheerful Charlie, Gerald, Lisa and of course, Kaleb.

"We are such a happy team."

Head of UK Originals at Amazon Studios Dan Grabiner said: "Clarkson's Farm is Jeremy's unfiltered love letter to farming.

"It is that authenticity, charm and humour, combined with the farm's fantastic characters, which have made the series such a remarkable hit with audiences.

"We are delighted to be joining the team for another year-in-the-life of Diddly Squat, and wish Kaleb and farmers across the country luck as Mother Nature continues to take revenge on Jeremy."

The series was an instant hit with viewers and critics, with Amazon Prime users giving it a five-star rating.

The first series followed Jeremy's first year in farming, as he and his team dealt with disobedient animals, the worst farming weather in decades, unresponsive crops and – of course – the pandemic.

And while it was a success in terms of television, the farm itself is draining Jezza's bank balance.

He wrote in his column with The Times that he would soon have to charge £500 for a jar of chilli chutney if he had any hope of making a profit.

By the time the poly-tunnels are up, I’ll be about £20,000 down. This means that to turn a profit my chutney will have to be about £500 a jar," he said.

He said how he had invested in "many new and exciting money-spinning projects, and then watched in horror as almost all of them ended in expensive failure".

Clarkson's Farm is available to stream on Amazon Prime
