Breaking news: Fifth Gear is coming back

Fifth Gear comeback

That’s the word on the tweet according to Jonny Smith. You’ll remember Jonny has already given us this potential scoop late year. This news follows reports from October last year confirming the show had been axed. Now, it looks as though Fifth Gear is about to take a leading role in Lazarus: The Auto Show. More news as it comes to hand…

UPDATE: Since this article was first posted Jonny Smith has tweeted, “we all know there’s room for 2 car TV shows. FG will simply be a reviews based visual car magazine.”

Tiff Needell has also confirmed via Twitter that Fifth Gear will be returning: “Home to the news that, after much negotiatiing Fifth Gear looks like it will after all be returning to your screens sometime in the Spring!”
