In a statement Thursday, LeBlanc said the program was "great fun," but the time and travel commitment "takes me away from my family and friends more than I'm comfortable with."

LeBlanc's fourth and final season as host is due for broadcast later this year.

They left in 2015 after Clarkson was fired for punching a producer and now host Amazon's rival show, "The Grand Tour."
