Diddly Squat Farm has given Clarkson's Farm fans a new update about when they can expect the upcoming new season.

Jeremy Clarkson and his co-stars including Kaleb Cooper are set to return for series three of the record-breaking Amazon Prime farm show this year.

It is nearly exactly a year since the second series of the show was released and fans have been waiting eagerly for brand new episodes.

However, the gap between seasons one and two was more than 18 months, meaning some fans are hesitant to get too excited.

As fans wait for an update, Mr Clarkson's partner Lisa Hogan took to social to share a video of her two Labradors playing on one of the farm's tractors.

"Team Diddly dogs at the ready," Hogan posted followed by the hashtags: "#diddlysquatfarmshop #tractorpulling #tractortrailer #cotswolds #clarksonsfarm #farminglife #dogsofinstagram."

Fans responded to the post with comments about how cute the pets looked, but others wanted an answer to the very important question.

“When does season 3 start Jeremy?", one Clarkson's Farm fan asked.

The official Diddly Squat Farm Instagram account responded by saying “not long now”.

The teaser response was spotted by dozens of fans who ‘liked’ the comment.

One wrote: “Season 2 was released on my birthday last year. Hoping for the same this year, Fenueray 11!”

While the response didn’t provide a specific release date, fans will certainly be lifted by the fact it sounds like the wait is almost over.

Season three won't be the last either after it was confirmed in November that the show will return with season four being given the green light by Amazon.

Fozia Khan, Amazon Studios’ head of unscripted in the UK, said producer Expectation was about to begin shooting season four “very soon”.
