‘Top Gear’ Gets Green Light for Season 2

American version of popular car-enthusiast show kicks into second gear

"Top Gear" fans, start your engines: The stylish (and popular) British import is getting a second season on History Channel.

The U.S. car series, which was adapted from the BBC show, will retain its co-hosts, comedian Adam Ferrara, champion rally/drift racer Tanner Foust and racing analyst Rutledge Wood.

The renewal isn't terribly surprising. The series debut of "Top Gear" last November pulled in nearly 2 million viewers.

The second season of "Top Gear" will begin production this spirng, as a co-production between History and BBC Worldwide, History said.
