Well it is according to Clarkson anyway, if not the BBC!

The announcer after the last episode of the current series said it would back in the Summer, but Clarkson’s newspaper column in The Sun said: “Can I just say, here and now, it won’t be.”

A BBC Spokesman responded by saying “Top Gear will be back. A summer special is planned.” A new series would reach screens in the autumn, he added.

“We’re expecting all three boys to present the programmes.”

But he refused to give any further details or explain the confusion.
