While it may be very frustrating to viewers, shows changing networks are more common than you may think. This is especially true for shows that have roots outside of the United States. “History treated Top Gear USA with great care, and the show had a solid five-season contractual run with the network. We are fully committed to the hugely successful Top Gear brand – known all over the world – and have begun exploring new opportunities for the series in the U.S.,” according to the BBC.

Top Gear USA is hosted by professional racing driver Tanner Foust, actor and comedian Adam Ferrara, and racing analyst Rutledge Wood. The show sticks with the formula that made its companion show so popular by featuring racing experts and celebrity guests each week. The American version of the show explores new territory by featuring stunts involving car customization, studio-based segments, and car reviews. Those looking for hope that the series will find a new home should keep in mind that episodes of Top Gear have previously aired on three networks so far to include NBC, Discovery, and the History channel.
