Ewan and Charley’s ‘Long Way Up’ Launch Date & Schedule Revealed

Ewan McGregor & Charley Boorman's new moto adventure premiering soon.

Published on 08.03.2020

As we reported last month, Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman’s ‘Long Way Up’ found a home at Apple TV+, who commissioned streaming rights to the new motorcycle series. Now, the streaming platform has revealed the remaining details of when the world will watch the famous duo’s new adventure, along with a preview of official photos from the project.

The official word is that the new series, starring and executive produced by Ewan and Charley, will begin rolling out as soon as next month. The first three episodes will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, September 18, and new episodes will air weekly.

The new series will follow Ewan and Charley as they ride Harley-Davidson LiveWire electric motorcycles through Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Central America, and Mexico up to Los Angeles. Also joining them are their longtime collaborators, directors David Alexanian and Russ Malkin, following them in their electric Rivian trucks. The whole journey covers 13,000 miles over 100 days through 16 border crossings and 13 countries.

So far, details about their trip have been scarce but McGregor revealed, in an interview with Jimmy Fallon, some of the challenges they faced riding electric bikes.

“It proved to be amazing, and quite tricky at the same time,” he said of charging the e-bikes along the way. And while they could sometimes charge the bikes at hotels, and restaurants during lunch stops, many times they had to rely on the generosity of locals, knocking on doors and asking to use an outlet.

Apple TV+ is available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, select Samsung and LG smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices, as well as at tv.apple.com, for $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial. 

We’ll bring you more details as they become available. Stay tuned!

Looking forward to this one.. Motorcycle travel brings you closer to the people and places you travel through….Hustling for electricity wherever they can get it adds another level of interaction with the people in the places they visit.

I don’t care what powers the bike. I care what powers the adventure. It’s cheesy, but Long Way Round is still an inspiration for me.
