The discovery of the Nile river’s source by James May not only signaled the end of episode 7, but unfortunately the end of Series 19 as well.
But fear not! It has been confirmed that Top Gear will return on June 30th 2013 for at least a 6 episode run. For further confirmation, view the list of filming dates on ApplauseStore.com.
Top Gear studio segments are filmed on a Wednesday, to then air the following Sunday. This means the initial film date of June 26th will result in Episode 1 airing on June 30th.
