Good news! Sir David Attenborough’s Dynasties series that aired in 2018 will be making a comeback!
Yep, the second part of the show will be airing in 2022 and it will follow animals from the Andes to the plains in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, and the wetlands fed by the flooded Zambezi River.
For this part, Angelina the elephant, Kali the cheetah, Rupestre the puma, and Suma the hyena will feature, and each episode will focus on a different animal family.
Jack Bootle, head of commissioning for science and natural history at BBC, said, ‘Dynasties II will be a gripping look at the lives of four remarkable wild animals as they struggle to build a family against the odds.’
He continued, ‘With characters, you fall in love with, and genuine life-and-death stakes, this will be a series every bit as thrilling as the greatest drama.’
The executive producer, Mike Gunton, also commented, ‘Being able to tell these stories is a wildlife film-maker’s dream…And just like in series one, they are going to be a gripping rollercoaster ride.’
Needless to say, we cannot wait to laugh and cry as we did in the first series, which eight million people across the globe watched… And I mean, who could forget that heart-wrenching moment when a group of emperor penguins and their babies were trapped in an ice gully?
But fear not, the Dynasties team made the rare decision to intervene, digging a shallow ramp to help them climb out… we can’t wait to see what the second installment has in store for us!
