The new David Attenborough show looks super intense and we’re so here for it

It's good to have you back, Sir David.

Happy World Animal Day, everyone! We’re kicking it off with some exciting animal-related news as Sir David Attenborough is back with yet another nature documentary series, which will fill the void that Planet Earth and Blue Planet left when they ended. He’ll be bringing a new show to the BBC called Dynasties and the exciting trailer dropped earlier today, proving that it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before.

The nature documentary is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before, as it’s going to hone in on just five species of animal: emperor penguins, tigers, lions and more. According to the BBC,every episode will focus on an individual endangered animal and follow their struggle for survival in the wild. The series, which took four years to film and create, looks wasymore like a tense reality TV drama centred around an animal rather than a nature documentary. We’re here for it.

If you’re a diehard Planet Earth II fan, the team behind it are the same one responsible for Dynasties — so you know it’s going to be good.

And of course, Sir David Attenborough will be lending his iconic voice to the show and seems to have travelled the world for the show, which isn’t bad going for a man who’s in his nineties now.

There’s no word yet on when the new show is set to drop, however the trailer definitely has us hungry for more.

TBH if the entire show was just an hour of that baby penguin shuffling through the snow, we’d probably be on board.
