We’re happy to report that Richard Hammond’s Crash Course will be back for Season Two:
Top Gear’s Richard Hammond is returning for the second season of Crash Course, which begins filming this week in Texas. The new eight-episode, 60-minute season, produced by BBC Worldwide Productions for BBC America, will land Hammond in some tight situations.
“This season, we’re pulling Richard out of his comfort zone and putting him through the ultimate crash course,” reports BBC America. “Hammond will immerse himself in uniquely American – often terrifying – vocations.”
In each episode of Season Two, Hammond has less than five days to master his assigned job ranging from conquering his fear of heights and jumping from the top of a bridge as a Hollywood stuntman to mastering his mad skills in a Harlem, NY barber shop. No word on a premiere date for this upcoming season.

A legitimately excellent interview with Richard including this gem:
Cars used to be a pretty popular lovemaking destination. Were you one of those people who happened to lose their virginity in a car?
[Laughs] You know I have never been asked that in 17 years! To be honest, my cherry wasn’t popped in one, but a fair amount of practice went in there after. It’s one of the ways cars are wrapped up in the mythology and our past. When you’re a kid, it’s the one place you can go to get away from the adult world.
Go read the rest. For real.
And yes, we’re counting down every hour.
Richard spoke with Kevin Pereira about Crash Course, driving a tank, and his thoughts on hybrids. Oh yeah, and he rides in on a jeep. Click through to watch the video.
