Sir David Attenborough, nature’s beloved grandfather, has a brand new BBC telly series in the works.
The naturalist previously brought us the beauties including The Blue Planet and The Blue Planet II. Now, he’ll be fronting a seven-part series with the working title One Planet, Seven Worlds.
Per Deadline, the series will take viewers to the world’s different continents, revealing how their differences have “shaped the unique animal life found there.”
Viewers will discover why Australasia is full of peculiar and venomous wildlife; why North America is a land of opportunity where pioneers succeed; and what the consequences are for life racing to compete on the richest of all continents, South America.
The series will also feature new animal behaviour from all the continents including the “baking plains of Africa and the frozen waters of Antarctica.”
In Asia, the biggest of all continents, we will showcase life at the extremes, whilst in Europe we will reveal surprising wildlife dramas hidden right alongside us.
This exciting new announcement comes as Attenborough’s latest BBC Earth series Dynasties premiered late last year. The series follows five of the world’s most celebrated animals; penguins, chimpanzees, lions, painted wolves, and tigers.
If that’s not enough to quench your nature thirst, you can also catch Attenborough in the forthcoming Netflix original documentary series Our Planet. From the creators of Planet Earth, the series takes viewers to some of the world’s most precious natural habitats.
Narrated by the one and only Sir David Attenborough, Our Planet will hit the streaming giant April 5, 2019.
