Apple TV+ today unveiled a first look at "Long Way Up," an epic new motorcycle series, starring and executive produced by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman, 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.

The journey sees Boorman and McGregor cover 13,000 miles over 100 days, crossing 16 borders and visiting 13 different countries. As per the title, the duo travels up from Ushuaia at the tip of South America through South America, Central America, and into Mexico.

Long Way Down, which first aired in 2007, is a 15,000-mile journey from the northern tip of Scotland to the southernmost tip of South Africa. Long Way Round is a mammoth trip around the globe, starting in London and finishing in New York. In that series, the pair travel across 12 countries and 19 times zones.
