While reporting about Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May hasn't seemed to quit over the last 12 months, the fact that the Top Gear trio were not together and filming episodes of the world's most popular automotive television show made 2012 a dull year for fans. The good news now is that, as promised, the gang is back together for 2013 and box-fresh episodes of the BBC series are coming soon. Very soon.

According to ApplauseStore.com, the website that Top Gear uses to sell tickets to the live filmings of the show, the next new episode is set to be shot on January 23. Typically Top Gear has been filmed live one week before the air date, meaning the next new episode should probably hit the airwaves on January 27.

We can't say exactly which cars or what sort of hair-brained hilarity will crop up in the newest episodes. It does seem like Jezza, The Hampster and Captain Slow will be doing a feature about driving supercars in the USA at some point this season – but we can say that we'll be planted in front of the flat-screen, tuned in and ready for the fun to begin anew.

      I think for the amount of money the BBC pays these guys, who happen to have the best job in the world they could do more than 6 shows. Love the show just want more of it screw the X factor

      FINALLY!! I have been deprived of my Top Gear for nearly a year now. It'll be good to have them in my routine again :)

      Should be fun, wish the American Cable and Dish networks would finally start airing the new ones already.

        BBC America has been running ads saying that the new season is coming soon.

      I wonder if their audience rules still include the boy/girl regulation. Two males could not buy tickets to see their show in person together. The show is a ridiculous POS anyway.
