LeBlanc, returning for his third series of 'Top Gear' in 2018, spoke a little about what fans could expect next time around.
Having successfully helmed the latest series of ‘Top Gear’ after the departure of Chris Evans last year, Matt LeBlanc has offered a little taster of what to expect from the next series of the BBC motoring show, saying that they will attempt to “expand the comedy”.
The 25th season of the show – and third since the exodus of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May – is due to air on BBC Two in the spring of 2018. It will see LeBlanc return as the main host, bolstered by supporting hosts Rory Reid and Chris Harris.
“I think we've tried to broaden the demographic of the show,” the American presenter said in a new interview. “Try to make it not lose the petrolhead nature of it but maybe open it up to people who aren't so petrolheady. Expand the comedy, try to have bigger, broader films, but it will be more of the same in the sense it starts with the car.”

The recent return of ‘Top Gear’ to the BBC might have ended in something of a debacle, but surviving co-presenter Matt LeBlanc has said he’d be keen on a second series of the motoring show.
