Sir David Attenborough will return for a second series of 'Dynasties' in 2022.
The 94-year-old broadcaster and natural historian will voice four hour-long episodes of the BBC Earth show as it follows a number of different animals – Angelina the elephant, Kali the cheetah, Rupestre the puma and hyena leader Suma, and their families.
Jack Bootle, head of commissioning for science and natural history at the BBC, 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."
The first series aired in 2018 and, according to the BBC, allowed viewers to "follow true stories of five of the world's most celebrated, yet endangered animals; penguins, chimpanzees, lions, painted wolves and tigers. Each in a heroic struggle against rivals and against the forces of nature, these families fight for their own survival and for the future of their dynasties."
Meanwhile, David recently worked on a one-off 'Dynasties' festive special, focusing on young meerkat queen, Maghogho, for the BBC Studios Natural History Unit.
'Meerkat: A Dynasties Special' follows Maghogho as she raises her pups in the hot and dry Makadikadi salt pans in Botswana, where almost nothing can survive.
Mike Gunton – Creative Director and Executive Producer, BBC Studios Natural History Unit – said: “Dynasties is back this festive season with a story like no other. Follow the twisting and turning tale of Maghogho and her clan and find yourself on the edge of your seat as they strive to battle both the elements and their enemies. This special shows viewers a whole new side to meerkats, and demonstrates the power of family unity through hardship."
