Apple has announced a second season of the natural history event series 'Prehistoric Planet', narrated by Sir David Attenborough. The series is produced by BBC Studios Natural History Unit and executive produced by Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton.

"Prehistoric Planet" combines award-winning wildlife filmmaking, the latest paleontology learnings and state-of-the-art technology to unveil the spectacular habitats and inhabitants of ancient Earth for a one-of-a-kind immersive experience. The series is produced by the world-renowned team at BBC Studios Natural History Unit with support from the photorealistic visual effects of MPC ("The Lion King," "The Jungle Book") applied to concept art created by Jellyfish Pictures ("The Book of Boba Fett," "Spirit: Untamed"). "Prehistoric Planet" season two continues to bring Earth's history to life like never before as the series presents new dinosaurs, new habitats and new scientific discoveries while taking viewers around the world in an epic five-night adventure. With new dinosaurs like the Tarchia, one of the largest Ankylosauri, to returning fan-favorites like the Tyrannosaurus rex, and many more, "Prehistoric Planet" returns with an all-new season of prehistoric wonders.

"The award-winning first season of 'Prehistoric Planet' brought dinosaurs back to life in a way global audiences had never seen before," said Jay Hunt, creative director, Europe, Apple TV+. "Collaborating with the brilliant Jon Favreau and our fantastic partners at the BBC, we are thrilled that viewers will once again have the opportunity to be immersed in the wonders of our world as it was 66 million years ago and to experience even more weird and wonderful creatures in season two."
