Their new quest will see them embark on a 13,000-mile journey across 16 border crossings in 13 countries.

Their journey will commence in the Argentine resort town of Ushuaia and the pair will continue to travel north

This will take them through South, Central and North America, home to some of the most breathtaking and picturesque landscapes in the world.

Apple TV+ will be dropping the first three episodes of Long Way Up next month of Friday, September 18 worldwide, then will proceed to release more episodes each week.

Ewan's latest project joins a growing number of shows to appear on the streaming platform.

It will follow the launches of Primetime Emmy Award-nominated drama series The Morning Show, Jason Momoa's science fiction thriller See and crime drama Defending Jacob with Chris Evans.


The Star Wars actor previously admitted he will enjoy the Obi-Wan Kenobi series "much more" than the prequels.

Thanks to technological upgrades, Ewan said he is looking forward to this go as Obi-Wan much more than the first time.

He told ACE Universe: "I'm just going to enjoy it all much more. [The prequels were] quite technically complicated, I remember. It was all blue screen and green screen.

"It was hard to imagine it. But nowadays, things have moved on so much and I think a lot of what you see is going to be what we see on the set… I think it's going to feel realer for us, the actors."
