On 10 March 2015, the programme was pulled from network schedules mid-series after an off-camera incident in which Clarkson made an unprovoked attack on a producer and was subsequently suspended pending an investigation. On 25 March, following an inquiry [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/statements/jeremy-clarkson-dg-statement the BBC decided it would not renew its contract with Clarkson]] and both Hammond and May subsequently announced that they were leaving the BBC because they don't want to carry on with the show without Clarkson. The last episode featuring Clarkson, Hammond, and May aired on 28 June 2015 in the form of a 75-minute special, with the former only appearing via films recorded before his suspension that would have been used in the abandoned episodes.
