Epic Natural History Documentary Event “Prehistoric Planet” Roars Back for Season Two on Apple TV+
Apple TV+ announced a second season of the award-winning natural history event series “Prehistoric Planet,” from executive producers Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton, and BBC Studios Natural History Unit (“Planet Earth”), narrated by Sir David Attenborough. Set to debut globally in a five-day week-long event on Apple TV+ May 22, 2023, the five-episode second season transports viewers millions of years in the past to discover our world – and the dinosaurs that roamed it – all in extraordinary detail, set to an original score by multiple Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer.
“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 our world as it was 66 million years ago and to experience even more weird and wonderful creatures.”
