Our thanks to young Caldey for sending into Everything Dinosaur a superb tyrannosaur illustration inspired by the theropod dinosaurs featured in the television series Prehistoric Planet II.

Following the pattern of the first season’s ground-breaking series, Prehistoric Planet II will be shown over five consecutive nights starting on May 22nd. It is being broadcast by Apple TV+. Season one covered Coasts, Deserts, Freshwater, Ice Worlds and Forests. The five programmes making up season two will feature Islands, Badlands, Swamps, Oceans and North America. Viewers can expect to see more prehistoric animals including pterosaurs, marine reptiles and of course dinosaurs. Perennial favourites return such as Velociraptor, Triceratops and tyrannosaurs, the subject of Caldey’s beautiful drawing.

Tyrannosaur Illustration

A spokesperson from Everything Dinosaur thanked Caldey for sending in her drawing of a fearsome tyrannosaur and commented;

“Series one was nominated for several awards including the Television Critics Association award for Outstanding Achievement in News and Information. We expect series two to be equally successful, if not more so. Dinosaur fans young and old are looking forward to the start of the new series. Our thanks to Caldey for creating such a terrific tyrannosaur illustration.”

Narrated by Sir David Attenborough

All the programmes will be narrated by Sir David Attenborough. Season two will include a special segment on each programme providing an in-depth analysis of the palaeontology used as the basis for the episode. This new segment, entitled “Prehistoric Planet Uncovered”, will provide viewers with the opportunity to hear from the scientists who advised the production team.

Just like Caldey, we are looking forward to Prehistoric Planet II.
