‘Planet Earth II’ was undoubtedly one of the television highlights of last year and although we were all sad to see it go, there was some respite in the fact that David Attenborough was going to be returning for ‘Blue Planet II’ this year.

In case you missed the first series of ‘Blue Planet’, it’s pretty much like ‘Planet Earth’ except it focusses on the weird marine life all over the world rather than animals in general. Like ‘Planet Earth II’, it looks like it’s destined to raise the bar yet again.
Here’s the official synopsis:
BBC’s Natural History Unit has spent four years recording footage of unbelievable new places, extraordinary new behaviours and remarkable new creatures. Showing a contemporary portrait of marine life, it will provide a timely reminder that this is a critical moment for the health of the world’s oceans.
It’s also been announced that legendary composer Hans Zimmer will be returning to the show to provide the score, which again should make you even more excited about its return later in the year. There are also a couple of trailers out which will whet your appetite even more:
Yeah, they’re not really giving much away there are they? But I suppose you know it’s going to be good anyway so they don’t really need to. A release date might have been appreciated though.
