Matt LeBlanc Signs $2 Million Deal To Host 'Top Gear' For Two Years

Matt LeBlanc has signed a new lucrative deal to host 'Top Gear' for another two seasons.

LeBlanc's one season contract expired in June. His new deal is said to be worth £1.5 million, or roughly $2 million.

BBC says LeBlanc will lead the program when it returns for a 24th series in 2017. He will be joined by Eddie Jordan, Sabine Schmitz, and motoring journalists Chris Harris and Rory Reid.

This despite the former 'Friends' star admitting in a recent interview that cars weren't his favorite thing about filming 'Top Gear'.

The show's previous lead host, Chris Evans, quit in July following criticism from fans and lackluster ratings.

"I am thrilled that Matt is returning to Top Gear," says BBC's Patrick Holland. "He's a huge talent whose love of cars is infectious. I can't wait for the series to return to BBC2 next year."
