Reminder For USA Viewers: ‘Planet Earth II’ Premieres On BBC America on January 28th


If the boffo ratings in the U.K. are any indication, chances are “Planet Earth II” will do pretty well in the United States, despite not being on The Discovery Channel.

If you live in the USA and you’re a nature TV buff, “Planet Earth II,” narrated by Sir David Attenborough, will be premiering on BBC America on January 28, 2017, according to CinemaBlend.

The first episode of “Planet Earth II” was the United Kingdom’s most-watched natural history program in more than 15 years, with a 9.2 million viewer audience tuning in to BBC1 in November, according to The Guardian.

To that end, the folks at travel company Cyplon Holidays came up with a really cool infographic that shows all the locations the program filmed at. Check it out below, along with the trailer if you’re looking to program your DVR early.
