Discovery has ordered a second series from Chimp Television and Krempelwood of Richard Hammond’s Workshop, which will air on discovery+ this summer.

The first series, which launched in October 2021, was the top performing new factual series for discovery+ since launching in 2020.

Series two will welcome viewers back into the workshop, as Hammond continues to build his prestige classic car restoration business alongside the hardworking family team, Neil, Anthony and Andrew Greenhouse.

The 10×60 original docuseries will follow Hammond’s team of expert mechanics, as they struggle to make the business break even and eventually turn a profit.

Simon Downing, SVP Marketing, Head of Factual & Docs UK at Discovery, said: “Richard Hammond’s Workshop has been a standout series on discovery+ and we are delighted to again partner with Chimp Television and Krempelwood to bring viewers series two.

“The show reaches far beyond the motoring fan base and has proved to be one of our most popular commissions through its deep-dive into not only Richard Hammond’s new business but his life. We are thrilled to bring even more access and insight into the trials and tribulations of a car restoration start-up and the colourful characters who make the show so uniquely entertaining yet real.”

Richard Hammond’s Workshop was ordered by Simon Downing, commissioned by Victoria Noble and executive produced by Oliver Wilson.
