In what it says is a continuation of its standing as the “definitive home of the most iconic natural history programming” on US TV, AMC Networks is to maintain its run of Planet Earth and Frozen Planets.

The series will air on BBC America — the BBC, AMC joint venture —  which asserts that collectively, Planet Earth III, Frozen Planet II and the upcoming One Planet: Seven Worlds (working title) — all David Attenborough-narrated — will ensure that it remains the definitive home of natural history programming in the US over the next five years.

Planet Earth III is described as the ‘most ambitious’ natural history landmark ever undertaken by the BBC, 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. It will air in 2022.

Frozen Planet II will take audiences back to the wildernesses of the Arctic and Antarctica. Ten years on from the original Frozen Planet, this series tells the complete story of the entire frozen quarter of our planet that’s locked in ice and blanketed in snow. It will air in 2021.

One Planet: Seven Worlds is said to be a brand new ambitious seven-part landmark nature docu-series. Each one-hour episode will transport viewers to a single continent and tell the story of its spectacular wildlife and iconic landscapes. Previously announced, it will air on BBCA in 2020.

“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 AMC Networks president, entertainment networks Sarah Barnett. “We are delighted to renew our successful partnership with BBC Studios, and to continue to co-produce these ground-breaking 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.”
