Our Planet is one of the best Netflix original series to watch if you love to be well-informed about the cycles of nature while also being mesmerized by the lives of the beautiful animals we have with us today.

The highly anticipated sophomore season of the title has finally been released on Netflix, and it’s everything we imagined it to be and so much more! From learning about how important it is for animals to have the freedom to move about (be it for migration or to find their mates) to being educated on what we can do to aid in preserving the ecological richness of our planet, this 2023 release receives passing marks on all fronts. So much so that audiences are begging for another season, but will we ever receive one?

Here’s everything we know so far about Our Planet III.

Is Our Planet renewed for season 3?

At the time of writing, there is little to no information regarding whether Our Planet will return for a third season. We suspect this is because the sophomore season was only recently released, and Netflix needs more time to see how the original series performs. But then again, a lack of renewal updates could be due to hundreds of reasons.

We hope to see the return of Our Planet very soon, as there are an infinite number of animals/themes the show could cover. Be sure to check back in frequently for everything to know!

As you wait for some season 3 news, here are a few recommendations that we think will help pass the time.

Netflix shows like Our Planet

Night on Earth is a limited series that kept us company while we waited for season 2 of Our Planet.

The 2020 series explored what animals do in the nighttime while we’re asleep, providing us with stunning visuals to aid in Samira Wiley’s phenomenal narration.

In addition to Night on Earth, we recommend the following Netflix nature documentaries:

  • Life in Color with David Attenborough (2021)
  • Our Great National Parks (2022)
  • Our Universe (2022)

Don’t forget to head to Netflix to catch Our Planet season 2 and many more nature documentaries just like it!
