CHENNAI: Sony BBC Earth is all set to premiere the second season of their marquee property ‘Frozen Planet’ in India. Produced by BBC Studios’ world-renowned Natural History Unit, co-produced by BBC America, the Open University, Migu Video, ZDF, and France Televisions, Frozen Planet II is narrated by Sir David Attenborough. The much-awaited six-part series returns to television screens after a long gap of 11 years.
Premiering on October 17, 2022, ‘Frozen Planet II’ will take people on an expedition to the world’s coldest areas – the high mountains, frozen desserts, snowbound forests, and ice-cold oceans, to explore the wildlife in these regions. Filmed in the ultra-high definition using the very latest camera technology, and featuring dramatic new behaviours, intimate stories, and sensational natural spectacles captured on camera for the very first time, this six-part series is a chance to experience the wonder of our planet’s frozen realms as never before.
Having won a total of 10 awards and 9 nominations, including 4 Primetime Emmys across categories, the first series – ‘Frozen Planet’ – took viewers on an extraordinary journey across the polar regions of our planet. With the premiere of its sequel, Frozen Planet II, the channel aims to heighten the visual delight of the viewers with another enthralling experience of the frozen worlds, this time exploring the planet on the brink of a major change.
As part of the series’ premiere, Sony BBC Earth has also launched an on-air contest where the winners will get exclusive invites to the special celebrity screening across major cities. Lucky winners will also stand a chance to win food and beverage coupons that can be redeemed at partner outlets.
Tune in and take a closer look at species such as polar bears to penguins, from snow monkeys to Siberian tigers overcoming unique sets of challenges to endure the extremities of the frozen world with Frozen Planet II. The show releases on 17th October 2022, only on Sony BBC Earth.
