Sir David Attenborough's Dynasties Is Returning To BBC For Second Series

Sir David Attenborough's Dynasties Is Returning To BBC For Second Series

Nature documentary series Dynasties is returning to the BBC for a second season.

The show - presented by 94-year-old Sir David Attenborough - will tell the stories of elephants, cheetahs, pumas and hyenas, spanning a diverse range of habitats across the globe.

Like the first series, each episode of Dynasties II will delve deep into the lives of specific groups, filming in a single location and following an individual leader on their daunting quest to keep their family safe and preserve their genetic line, or dynasty.

Audiences can expect to be transported into the 'dangerous, surprising and breath-taking worlds these animals inhabit'.

A synopsis reads: "Each a leader in their own right; Angelina the matriarch elephant, she-cheetah Kali, Rupestre the puma and hyena clan-leader Suma, are confronted by a rapidly changing world with relentless competition for dwindling resources that stacks perilous odds against them.

"These pioneers must adapt quickly, or face losing their dynasty forever."

The series will take us from the southern tip of the snow-capped Andes, to dusty plains in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro, to vast wetlands fed by the flooding of the Zambezi River - which all sounds very exciting.

Unfortunately though, it won't take us there until 2022, with an exact release date yet to be confirmed.

Jack Bootle - head of commissioning, science and natural history at the BBC - reckons it will be well worth the wait.

He 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.

"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."

Executive producer, Mike Gunton, added: "Being able to tell these stories is a wildlife film-makers dream - and just like in series one, they are going to be a gripping rollercoaster ride."

More than eight million people watched the first series in 2018, which showcased the daily struggles of courageous creatures such as Charm the lioness, Blacktip the painted wolf and David the chimpanzee.

The latter was beaten to death by rival chimps just months after cameras stopped following him; so hopefully a happier ending awaits Angelina, Kali, Rupestre and Suma.

The second series will be comprised of four one-hour episodes and will air on BBC One.
