Prehistoric Planet season 2 live stream: preview

Prepare to be whisked away to the Cretaceous period. Acclaimed natural history series Prehistoric Planet returns, with its award-winning visual effects team vividly recreating our world as believed to have existed over 66 million years ago.

It’s a series of epic proportions, and season two will introduce viewers to lesser-known dinos as they forage, fend for their young, and battle terrifying predators in spectacular habitats.

Legendary broadcaster David Attenborough narrates new, cutting-edge paleontological research about the lives of dinos, while creatures like Velociraptor and the giant winged Quetzalcoatlus are rendered with photorealistic CGI by the FX team behind producer Jon Favreau’s The Lion King. Prodigious composer Hans Zimmer (Gladiator, The Dark Knight) is also back, delivering yet another sweeping score.

Having already charted arid deserts, frozen ice worlds and verdant forests, season 2 sees new dinosaurs navigating brand new landscapes. Episode 1 Islands focuses on the winged Hatzegopteryx as it attempts to woo a mate, and viewers can marvel at Mosasaurus – the world’s largest predator – as it sluices its way through the ocean depths.

We’ll even discover that a T. rex has something to fear when, in the series finale, it faces a thrilling airborne assault from a giant Quetzalcoatlus.

Awe-inspiring and educational, catch every episode with our guide below, which explains how to watch Prehistoric Planet season 2 for FREE with Apple TV Plus, and from absolutely anywhere with a VPN. Don't forget to catch up on Prehistoric Planet season 1 while you're there.
