“Matt LeBlanc is making for the exit after BBC Studios confirmed that the ‘Top Gear’ host will leave after the next season of the motoring format,” Deadline reports. “LeBlanc, who joined the series in 2016, will leave the BBC Two show after his fourth journey later this year.”

The report adds: “Presenting alongside Chris Harris and Rory Reid, the ‘Friends’ star helped steady the ‘Top Gear’ brand after the departure of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May as well as the short-lived appointment of Chris Evans.”

Deadline notes that LeBlanc’s contributions to “Top Gear” have included “building the world’s fastest tractor and helping NASA land a priceless research plane.”
