Last year, the BBC announced they had recommissioned a second series of Clive’s RoadTrip adventures following a successful first season, where he visited one of his favourite countries, Italy.

The upcoming Clive Myrie’s Caribbean Adventure will be a personal adventure for the Mastermind star as he jets off across four islands, unravelling his family roots and developing connections with each location.

In the 15-episode series, viewers follow the BBC star as he takes a profound journey to the energetic streets of Cuba, the nightlife of Jamaica, the stunning scenery of the Dominican Republic, and the beach utopias of Barbados

In Cuba, Clive will indulge in his love of vintage cars while exploring his connection to the island after discovering that one of his granddads spent time there. 

While he is there, the quiz show host will also learn about the indigenous Taino people, some of the first inhabitants of much of the Caribbean.

Meanwhile, in Jamaica, where both of Clive’s parents originate from, the TV personality will investigate how the island’s music has changed the world, track down family members he’s never met, and spend time with his sister Judith, who recently relocated back to Jamaica from the UK.

The BBC news correspondent will also dive into the history of Carnival in the Dominican Republic, where the Afro-Caribbean story began.

He will be educated in one of the oldest cities in the Americas, plunge into Dominican Santeria—a heady blend of African and European religious belief—and get busy on a banana farm.

Clive will also be visiting Barbados, an island that recently decided to drift away from British influence and the Commonwealth.

During his stay, he will be experiencing the future of rum-making while delving into the vivid signs of British culture displayed everywhere.

The BBC star will be attending a cliff-top retreat with second-generation Brits who’ve reversed their parents’ journey and returned to live in the Caribbean, as well as swimming with racehorses.

Speaking on the upcoming series Clive said: “I can’t wait to share my journey and the beauty of the Caribbean – a place I’m proud to call my ancestral home. 

“It’s been such an amazing experience exploring this lush part of the world, and I’ve loved discovering more about the communities and traditions behind each place. 

“I hope viewers enjoy the incredible landscapes and people who make-up this slice of paradise.”

BBC Commissioning Editor Muslim Alim added: “Clive’s first travelogue was a BBC Daytime smash hit, so I am very excited about this second season. 

“It is a personal adventure for Clive, too, diving into his links with the Islands and their historical significance.

“I know that Clive will once again bring his amazing personality, endless curiosity about the world and talent for connecting with people, and I hope that audiences will enjoy the second series as much as his Italian trip.”

The BBC has yet to release more details about when Clive Myrie’s Caribbean Adventure will be hitting screens.
