Because every iconic collaboration needs a follow up – side note: still waiting for Watch The Throne II – Apple TV+ had to greenlight Prehistoric Planet season 2, which is now streaming in its entirety on its platform.

Reuniting the award-winning wildlife filmmaking of the GOAT himself, Sir David Attenborough, with the equally celebrated music of the one and only Hans Zimmer, anyone who witnessed the first instalment needn’t be sold on this.

But for those of you who haven’t had the distinct privilege of digesting the above yet, or in the incredibly unlikely scenario the promise of Attenborough + Zimmer alone hasn’t already sold the entire concept, perhaps the promise of the latest palaeontology learnings delivered by state-of-the-art tech will push it over the line for you.

The Prehistoric Planet season 3 episodes are as follows:

  • Episode 1 – Islands
    “Islands create unusual environments for any animal; surrounded by water and with little opportunity for new arrivals or existing residents to relocate, evolution takes unusual turns. Animals shrink in stature; duck-billed hadrosaurs (which usually rival Tyrannosaurus rex for size) have evolved to the size of a pony, mammals have filled some biological niches and live side by side with giant snakes, and the major predators arrive not by foot, but from the air.”
  • Episode 2 – Badlands
    “Badlands are the harshest places on the Prehistoric Planet, where temperatures scorch the land, toxic gasses fill the air and erupting volcanoes spew plumes of lava; yet even in these most extreme environments, dinosaurs thrive. Long-necked titanosaurs take perilous journeys, armoured ankylosaurs master survival in the desert and velociraptors show cunning in their hunting.”
  • Episode 3 – Swamps
    “The waterlogged worlds of our Prehistoric Planet were home to some of the most spectacular animals on earth. Young pterosaurs hatch from their underground nests on tiny inland islands, surrounded by murky swamp waters. Austroraptors, giant, 20ft long cousins of velociraptor, gather along creeks in summer to fight for the best fishing spot. In the seasonal wetlands of Madagascar, a monstrous toad races against time and a herd of giant sauropods to find a mate. Bizarre dome-headed pachycephalosaurs cling on to survival after a decade-long drought transformed their wetland home. And under the cover of darkness, a pair of Tyrannosaurus rex stalk the fringes of a forested wetland hoping to find their next meal.”

Prehistoric Planet Season 2 Is Now Streaming On Apple TV+
  • Episode 4 – Oceans
    “The oceans make up the largest habitat on our prehistoric planet. From pole to pole, it covers approximately 70% of its surface. Home to the planet’s biggest predators, every animal needs an edge to stay alive, from the mighty marine lizards, the mosasaurs, to the tiniest shelled ammonites that spend months at sea in a bid for global dominance in sheer numbers. Surprisingly there’s a fully marine dinosaur among them that outmanoeuvres one of the largest and fastest predatory bony fishes that has ever lived. The most resourceful animals will always find opportunities in the vast oceans.”
  • Episode 5 – North America
    “North America was home to probably the most famous dinosaur of all time, Tyrannosaurus rex, but it didn’t always have the upper hand as an encounter with a pair of giant flying pterosaurs reveals. Forests echo to the annual triceratops rut, a family of Pectinodons make the most of an unusual seasonal insect bonanza, whilst towards the arctic a Nanuqsaurus hunts Ornithomimus on the tundra.”

Once again, this CGI-heavy affair has been produced by the world-renowned team at BBC Studios Natural History Unit with Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton serving as executive producers. The photorealistic visual effects have been accomplished in great part thanks to MPC, which was behind what we saw in Favreau’s The Jungle Book and The Lion King remakes.

Every episode of Sir David Attenborough’s Prehistoric Planet season 2 is now streaming on Apple TV+ – check out the trailer above.
