When is Planet Earth 3’s release date? Everything to know about the BBC documentary
FROM the hottest deserts to the iciest grounds, Planet Earth has always made it its mission to take viewers on a breathtaking journey.
But, when can we expect Planet Earth III? Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming show.
When is Planet Earth 3's release date?
The BBC has revealed that a third series of the widely beloved programme Planet Earth is in the making.
The release date hasn't been revealed yet, but we can expect for it to come out sometime in 2022.
As the filming and editing of the show IS very laborious and includes stories captured all over the world, it is no surprise that we will have to wait for a while.
It will consist of eight hour-long episodes.
We will keep you updated as more information regarding its release is announced.
What will it be about?
Producers are saying it will be the most ambitious natural history landmark BBC has ever put out.
The series will look at nature at a truly global scale and bring in the wonderful storytelling we have come to love in BBC documentaries.
Crews will be out on the field shooting longer than ever before.
They will use the latest technology including robotic cameras and deep submersibles to take the audience on a mesmerising visual journey.
It is said to reveal the new challenges animal and plants are facing in the 21st century as our planet becomes more fragile.
What other BBC nature documentaries will air before Planet Earth III?
Planet Earth III is a long way away, but don't worry, BBC will make sure you get your nature fix up until then.
Here are the other beautiful documentaries scheduled to air between now and 2022.
- One Planet: Seven Worlds (2019) - The show will explore the traits of each continent and how these characteristics influence the animals living there.
- Perfect Planet (2020) - It will show how the raw forces of nature shape and support our planet's diversity of life. From the weather and ocean currents to solar energy and volcanoes, the viewers will see it all.
- Primates (2020) - The show will focus on our closest cousins in the animal kingdom including mighty gorillas and fluffy lemurs.
- Frozen Planet II (2021) -This will bring us face to face with the melting icy corners of our planet and how the animals are suffering.
- Green Planet (2021) - The series will observe plants in an entirely new light.
- The Mating Game (2021) - As the name suggests, the documentary will be about the mating behaviour of all sorts of animals.
- Earth's Paradise Islands - From Hawaii to Madagascar, the series will explore Earth's isolated habitats with cutting-edge technology.
Can I still watch Planet Earth II?
Yes, both Planet Earth and Planet Earth II are available to watch on Netflix.
You can also catch them on YouTube and Google Play.
Planet Earth first aired on BBC in 2006 and its follow-up went out in 2016.
Sound the good news klaxon; the BBC have confirmed that there'll be a Planet Earth III coming to our screens. The slight catch is that the 8-part natural world documentary is not lined up until 2022, so we must patiently wait for a good three years until the David Attenborough favourite returns.
But it sounds like we've got a lot to be excited about. In a statement, the BBC said:
"Combining the awe and wonder of the original Planet Earth, the new science and discoveries of Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II, and the immersive character-led storytelling of Dynasties, the series will take the ‘Planet Earth’ experience to new heights."

The national treasure that is David Attenborough hasn't yet officially been confirmed for the series. At 92 years old, we wouldn't blame him for retiring. (But the same time, he better not because it just won't be the same without him.)
Also announced was the second series of Frozen Planet, which is due to be aired in 2021, 10 years on from the original season. This one will take us back to the Arctic and Antarctica, delving into a very icy natural world.
Thankfully, for the less patient among us, a David Attenborough documentary is coming to Netflix much sooner: Our Planet arrives on 5th April 2019. We, for one, can't wait.

Planet Earth III Updates: Will The Stunning Documentary Series Return?
Will there be a Planet Earth III? The first season of the BBC’s groundbreaking nature documentary Planet Earth aired way back in 2006. Combining cutting-edge technology and the dulcet tones of narrator David Attenborough, Planet Earth gave nature lovers a breathtaking global overview of the planet with each of its 11 episodes focusing on a different environmental habitat – from mountains and seas to jungles and deserts.
Planet Earth was then the most expensive wildlife documentary ever filmed and took a jaw-dropping five years to make. The effort was well worth it when the show was showered with praise and took home a handful of Emmys and a Peabody Award. Soon enough, Planet Earth grew into a franchise that spawned a number of companion series – including the conservation-themed documentaries Planet Earth: The Future and Saving Planet Earth – and a feature film co-produced by Disney and the BBC titled Earth.

It would be a decade, however, until nature lovers got to see an official second season. The long-awaited Planet Earth II finally aired in 2016 and took viewers on another remarkable journey across the globe that dipped into the everyday lives of everything from marine iguanas on the Galapagos Islands to urban peregrine falcons in New York. Luckily, fans of Planet Earth won’t have to wait another decade for a third season. Here’s everything we know about Planet Earth III.
Planet Earth III Is Already Underway
The BBC announced in February 2019 that Planet Earth III was definitely happening. Described by the network as “the most ambitious natural history landmark” it’s ever undertaken, Planet Earth III promises to use the latest technology and newly discovered flora and fauna behaviors to explore both the wonders of the world and the challenges currently facing the planet. The third season will feature eight brand-new one-hour episodes and is set to air on the BBC and BBC America in 2022.
Planet Earth III Is Part Of A Series Of Natural History Programming
Alongside stating Planet Earth III was going into production, the BBC also announced it had several other nature documentaries in the works. Seven Worlds, One Planet was broadcast in 2019 and tells the story of the wildlife on each of the planet’s seven continents. Perfect Planet explores how forces of nature like weather and ocean currents shape the world while Green Planet is described as “Planet Earth from the perspective of plants.” Both Perfect Planet and Green Planet will air in 2020.
Finally, the BBC will also release Frozen Planet II – a follow-up to its 2011 series – sometime in 2021. So, while there’s still a couple of years to wait before Planet Earth III hits the small screen, there are plenty of other stunning documentaries to keep nature lovers entertained in the meantime.

‘Planet Earth III,’ ‘Frozen Planet II’ Coming to BBC America
BBC America will continue bringing viewers closer to nature with new installments of the Planet Earth and Frozen Planet series.
Frozen Planet II, a follow-up to the 2011-12 series, is set to premiere in 2021. Planet Earth III will follow in 2022. The two shows join the previously announced One Planet: Seven Worlds, which is set to air in 2020. BBC America is extending its relationship with the BBC Studios Natural History Unit for five years.
“One of the things we’re most proud of at BBC America is that we’ve established the network as the U.S. destination for the very best nature programming on the planet, from the BBC’s award-winning natural history unit,” said Sarah Barnett, president, entertainment networks at AMC Networks. “We are delighted to renew our successful partnership with BBC Studios, and to continue to co-produce these groundbreaking series. To bring together audiences for this kind of transcendent event television is a true privilege. We couldn’t be happier to continue to do this for the next five years.”
The extension of the partnership and new shows comes as Netflix prepares to launch its own nature documentary series, Our Planet, due April 5. That series is narrated by David Attenborough — the voice of Planet Earth and its sister series Blue Planet — and produced by Alistair Fothergill, who also produced the first installments of Planet Earth and Frozen Planet.
Attenborough will also narrate One Planet: Seven Worlds. The voice of Frozen Planet II and Planet Earth III hasn’t been announced yet.
Planet Earth II won two Emmy Awards in 2017, for outstanding documentary series and for cinematography. Frozen Planet won those same honors in 2012, along with honors for sound editing and picture editing.
The new editions of Frozen Planet and Planet Earth are produced by BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit, co-produced by BBC America and The Open University.

Planet Earth is a television and film documentary franchise produced and broadcast by the BBC. The franchise began in 2001 with the success of The Blue Planet. As of 2017, The Blue Planet has spawned 5 series and one feature film.
In 2001 the BBC broadcast The Blue Planet, a landmark series on the natural history of the world's oceans. It received critical acclaim, high viewing figures, audience appreciation ratings, and many awards. It also became a hugely profitable global brand, eventually being sold to 150 countries worldwide. Feedback showed that audiences particularly liked the epic scale, the scenes of new and unusual species and the cinematic quality of the series. Programme commissioners were keen for a follow-up, so Alastair Fothergill decided that the Natural History Unit should repeat the formula with a series looking at the whole planet. The idea for Planet Earth was born, and the series was commissioned by Lorraine Heggessey, then Controller of BBC One, in January 2002.
A feature film version of Planet Earth was commissioned alongside the television series, repeating the successful model established with The Blue Planet and its companion film, Deep Blue. Earth was released around the world from 2007 to 2009.

From the frozen ocean of the Arctic, to the snowy forests and great plains of the far north, from the high-altitude peaks of our mountains to the ice-locked south of Antarctica. These are the last true wildernesses- so challenging for survival, that only a heroic cast of animals can live here. From polar bears to Siberian tigers, snow monkeys and penguins, each frozen world raises different challenges for the animals that brave the extreme conditions here.
Today they are united by a new threat. As temperatures rise at an unprecedented rate, our frozen planet is literally vanishing before our eyes. What will be the true impact on humans and wildlife? In this series we will follow the heroic scientists, braving some of the most dangerous places on earth, in a bid to find the answers.
