Our Planet Season 2 Netflix Renewal Status

Official Netflix Renewal Status: Pending (Last updated: 04/06/2019)

We don’t expect to hear news on the renewal of Our Planet for of least a couple of months. Netflix will have to wait a month or two to gather all the data on the number of subscribers that have streamed the docuseries.

As Silverback Films also produce docuseries for the BBC, Netflix may have to compete with the British broadcaster to license the show and thus funding the production. Alongside the budget needed to produce a show that takes years of production, it’s a massive commitment for Netflix to produce another season of Our Planet.

One more thing to consider is Silverback Films may want to create a new docuseries and return to Our Planet years later.

Netflix Release Date Our Planet Season 2

If renewal were to happen then we wouldn’t expect to see the second season until of least 2023. When the announcement was made that Our Planet had been ordered by Netflix, this was in 2015. With the number of locations used and the time spent documenting the animals, it takes a significant amount of time to produce.

Expected Release Date: 2023
