Now, Jeremy has revealed editing is currently taking place, after filming wrapped on Monday this week.
He told fans he was forced to stop harvesting at his Cotswolds-based farm due to the extreme heat on Thursday, while also sharing an update on the show’s status. ‘F**ketty f**k. Had to stop harvesting because of, and I’m not making this up, the fire risk,’ he penned on Twitter However, when a fan asked him how things were going he had some good news to share. Finished filming on Monday. Now the long process of editing begins,’ the TV star responded. Another intrigued viewer replied: ‘So they haven’t been editing anything throughout this whole time?’ To which Jeremy confirmed: ‘Yup. We have done four shows.’ While it’s not yet clear when these will come to the streaming service, it seems we’ll soon get to see more of the goings on from Jeremy’s ongoing project.
Kaleb confirmed that filming for new episodes of the hit show was ‘well underway’ at the end of last year after its renewal was announced in July. Jeremy bought the land on which the 1,000 acre Diddly Squat Farm resides in 2008 and has chronicled his agricultural adventures on the show. Elsewhere, Jeremy was urged in the same Twitter thread to ‘stay safe’ amid the soaring temperatures, to which Jeremy responded: ‘Safe? B*****ks to that. I’m trying to harvest next year’s Hawkstone.’ The last heatwave in July – where temperatures reached melting heights of 40.3 degrees – also saw Jeremy lose one of his pigs due to the extreme heat. He told fans at the time that the ‘global warming is now over,’ adding: ‘Tragically, its brief visit took the life of my big pig. RIP pig.’
