Apple TV+ has released the trailer for the second season of its award-winning natural history series, “Prehistoric Planet.” The series, from executive producers Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton, and BBC Studios Natural History Unit, is set to debut globally on May 22, 2023, on Apple TV+.

Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, the series takes viewers on a journey through time, back millions of years, to discover our world and the dinosaurs that roamed it. This season will explore five new habitats, including the active volcanoes of India, the marshlands of Madagascar, and the deep oceans near North America.

“Prehistoric Planet” is a groundbreaking natural history series that explores the wonders of the ancient world. The series combines award-winning wildlife filmmaking, the latest paleontology learnings, and state-of-the-art technology to unveil the spectacular habitats and inhabitants of ancient Earth for a one-of-a-kind immersive experience.

Season 2 of “Prehistoric Planet” promises to be even more thrilling than the first. The series brings exciting scientific discoveries that unearth new dinosaur behavior and introduce never-before-seen apex predators. New studies show that giant herbivore dinosaurs, like Tarchia, were formidable fighters – their armored skin defended against predators, as well as among themselves for mating rights.

While the T. Rex was known to be the mightiest predator on land, a lesser-known rival for the title of “Prehistoric Planet’s Deadliest” ruled the seas. The giant Mosasaurus was a 55-foot aquatic lizard capable of accelerating through the water at incredible speeds and launching attacks that its prey would never see coming. Isisaurus is one of many dinosaurs making their screen debut in season two. Fossil records show that they may have nested in huge lava-covered areas, deliberately laying their eggs where volcanic heat warmed the ground. Predators were also found in the air; Quetzalcoatlus was a giraffe-sized flying reptile and the biggest animal ever to fly. These incredible pterosaurs could attack and fly with prey up to 100 lbs, armed with a six-foot, fast-stabbing beak.

Aside from the fascinating scientific discoveries, what makes the series truly captivating is the way it takes viewers up close into dinosaurs’ habitats to experience the dangers, the adventures, and even the camaraderie between species unlike we’ve seen before.

“Prehistoric Planet” season two introduces many dinosaur species new to science, named in recent years from the Cretaceous world, while also hinting at other animals that lived alongside dinosaurs, including early members of most groups of animals alive today. Check out the trailer here:

Along with the new season of the series, Apple TV+ will premiere a new companion podcast called “Prehistoric Planet: The Official Podcast.” The podcast will feature weekly interviews with expert paleontologists, animators, and more, as they reveal the science and technology used to bring the magnificent habitats—and the creatures who roamed them—to life.

The complete first season is available to stream now on Apple TV+.

Don’t miss the five-day, week-long epic event starting May 22, 2023, on Apple TV+. Join Sir David Attenborough on a journey of new dinosaur discoveries and ancient habitats, exploring the wonders of the ancient world in extraordinary detail.
