A Planet Earth follow-up series is coming to Netflix titled Our Earth. Unfortunately it won’t premiere until 2019, but that gives us plenty of time to re-watch and re-watch the entired boxed set of DVDs.
The project will take four years to complete using the latest camera technology. We’ll get a look into never-before-filmed areas. We’re talking ice caps, the deep ocean, etc.
