Apple TV+ Teases ‘Prehistoric Planet’ Season 2

Show’s sophomore outing continues to bring Earth’s history to life with new dinosaurs, new habitats and scientific discoveries while taking viewers around the world on an epic adventure, debuting with a global five-day, week-long event in May.

Apple TV+ has shared the first-look image and teaser for Prehistoric Planet Season 2, from executive producers Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton and BBC Studios Natural History Unit (Planet Earth). Sir David Attenborough narrates the award-winning natural history series with an original score by Hans Zimmer, Anže Rozman, and Kara Talve for Bleeding Fingers Music. The new season will debut globally in a five-day, week-long event on the streamer starting on May 22, 2023.

The new episodes transport viewers millions of years in the past to discover our world — and the dinosaurs that roamed it — all in extraordinary detail. This teaser traverses the globe to a land before our time, using the latest scientific research and visual effects to bring audiences never-before-seen species on-screen, including notable dinosaurs new this season:

  • Isisaurus - An Indian sauropod (long-necked, plant-eating dinosaur) that made its home in an extreme volcanic region known as the Deccan Traps, laying eggs in volcanic heated terrain. 
  • Pectinodon – A fierce hunter and fond parent, this bird-like North American feathered dinosaur was part of the troodontid family. A sharp-clawed, long-legged predator, it was an adaptable hunter, its teeth and jaws suggesting that many small animals would have been on the menu.
  • Quetzalcoatlus and Hatzegopteryx – The biggest creatures ever to soar the skies, these gargantuan pterosaurs (prehistoric flying reptiles) were the size of a giraffe or small aircraft and are some of “Prehistoric Planet’s” most charismatic characters.

Prehistoric Planet combines award-winning wildlife filmmaking, the latest paleontology learnings, and state-of-the-art technology to unveil the habitats and inhabitants of ancient Earth for a one-of-a-kind immersive experience. The series is produced by the BBC Studios Natural History Unit team 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).
