World War Three, a catastrophic earthquake and a third 'anti-Christ' may all be in store for Earth, if we're to believe 16th-century French astrologer and oracle Nostradamus - whose predictions have previously been credited with foreseeing the likes of the 9/11 attacks and the rise of Adolf Hitler.
Michel de Nostredame, whose name was often Latinised as Nostradamus, was known for his 1555 book Les Prophéties, in which he shared a total of 942 short poems predicting future events leading up to the year 3797.
A new eight-part documentary series on Discovery+ explores some of his prophecies, with experts sharing their groundbreaking interpretations to uncover the 'destruction soon to be inflicted upon us by earthquakes, floods, fire, nuclear war, disease, asteroid strikes and more'.
In Nostradamus: End of Days, we learn about 'exactly how the world will end, and what will be behind it', with episodes including 'Seismic Destiny', 'Waters Rising', 'Volcanic Ruin', 'Nuclear Apocalypse' and 'Death From Space'.
Nostradamus, who died in 1566, is believed by many to have predicted the 9/11 attacks in New York, the Great Fire of London and even the rise of Hitler, among other disasters.
But with a total of 942 prophecies in his book, some say there are many more to come - including a catastrophic earthquake that will hit California and the Mississippi River splitting in half, according to the new doc.
British Nostradamus expert Bobby Shailer, who appears in the series, has detailed the most devastating volcanic eruption ever in Yellowstone National Park and a massive solar flare that could disrupt electronics.
Speaking to The Sun, he said: "Nostradamus does talk about something he calls the final conflagration, fire from the heavens, extinction level events, two or three, which would probably happen close to 3797, but he does mention several conflagrations before that.
"There will be others."
Shailer, who has been studying the French soothsayer for over a decade, also believes that a third 'antichrist' is already on Earth.
He explained: "An anti-Christ by Nostradamus's definition are war mongers who are responsible for the death of innocent people, such as Hitler or Napoleon.
"I think the third anti-Christ is coming up soon, possibly in the next ten to 20 years. I would think he's probably alive today."
However, if Nostradamus is right, Earth isn't actually doomed for another 1,776 years, so we've got a while yet.
The first two episodes of Nostradamus: End of Days are available to watch now, with new episodes weekly on Tuesdays.
