Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman are getting back on their bikes for another gruelling adventure with Long Way Up. Apple TV+ today unveiled a first look at the upcoming epic new motorcycle series, check out the new images below
Which reunites best friends after more than a decade since their last motorbike adventure around the world. The first three episodes of Long Way Up will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, September 18, and new episodes will roll out weekly.
I’ll have to admit I am a big fan of Ewan and Charley’s previous shows Long Way Round (London to New York via Europe, Russia) and Long Way Down (John O’Groats to Cape Town South Africa). I always wondered what route could the guys cover especially in today’s political climate? South America upwards!
The reason was Charley had a serious accident a few years ago which nearly killed him. I’m amazed to see him back on the saddle as he was in a wheelchair for a while, so I’m really excited to see these guys on this adventure.
Covering 13,000 miles over 100 days through 16 border crossings and 13 countries, starting from the city of Ushuaia at the tip of South America, Ewan and Charley journey through the glorious and underexposed landscapes of South and Central America in their most challenging expedition to date, using cutting edge technology on the backs of their electric Harley-Davidson LiveWire® motorcycles in order to contribute to the sustainability of the planet.
The new series will follow Ewan and Charley as they journey through Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and up through Colombia, Central America and Mexico. Also joining them are their longtime collaborators, directors David Alexanian and Russ Malkin following them in their electric Rivians.
“Long Way Up” is a new original series that follows Ewan and Charley’s previous adventures in “Long Way Round” and “Long Way Down.”
