Animal Planet continues Steve Irwin’s legacy with the premiere of “Crikey! It’s the Irwins!” The Irwin family is brining khaki back to the network when the all-new series debuts globally on October 28th.
“Terri, Bindi and Robert – return to Animal Planet in a new series that gives audiences an all-access, front row seat to experience the sights and sounds of their thrilling wildlife adventures around the globe and the amazing animals that continue to inspire their conservation efforts. From running Australia’s largest family-owned zoo, Australia Zoo in Queensland, to crisscrossing the world protecting and celebrating the most wondrous animals on the planet, The Irwins work thoughtfully and tirelessly to carry on Steve’s mission to bring people closer to animals and ignite the connection that will ensure an abundance of wildlife for generations to come,” from the Animal Planet press release.
Steve Irwin is an icon as the “Crocodile Hunter” and it’s exciting to see his family return and bring that back to television. In the series premiere, Robert Irwin takes the final steps in his croc wrangling training to feed the zoo’s largest croc, Graham, originally rescued by his late father.
