If you have missed Sir David Attenborough since Planet Earth II concluded earlier last year then you may be interested to hear that the BBC and Attenborough are coming back for the launch of the new Blue Planet series.

As the name suggests, Blue Planet will have a focus on the wildlife that can be found in the Earth’s seas and oceans, with narration by Sir David Attenborough himself.

The new series, Blue Planet II will be aired in the UK later this year and will then be aired to other regions that BBC provides shows to some time after.

James Honeyborne, the executive producer for the series said the following about it to BBC News:

“The oceans are the most exciting place to be right now, because new scientific discoveries have given us a new perspective of life beneath the waves.

“Blue Planet II is taking its cue from these breakthroughs, unveiling 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 certainly something that we are looking forward to the release of Blue Planet II, personally, I thoroughly enjoyed watching it back in 2001, along with the more than 12 million other people who watched the original series.
