While the Dodo bird itself couldn’t survive, it’s champion TV show has avoided extinction for at least one more year!
Animal Planet announced the renewal of Dodo Heroes for a second season. The show which “features inspiring stories of animals from around the world and those who go to unimaginable lengths to help and protect them” will premiere later this year.
“We’re so thrilled with the success of season one and looking forward to continuing our partnership with Animal Planet,” said Izzie Lerer, founder and chief creative officer of The Dodo. “We have a group of incredible people and animals to highlight throughout season two and are so grateful for the opportunity to be able to share their inspirational stories.”
“We are delighted to partner with The Dodo for a new season of this wonderful series. Viewers from all around the world responded so well to the inspiring stories which showed just how powerful and heartwarming the relationship between animals and the people who dedicate their lives to their care can be. This season’s stories promise to be just as compelling,” said Susanna Dinnage, global president of Animal Planet.
The series was quite successful in bringing new viewers to Animal Planet, which I’m sure didn’t hurt its renewal chances. Stay tuned to RCTV to see how Dodo Heroes fairs beyond its second season!
