According to the filmmakers, it will take them around four years to make the documentary sequel, as this is going to be an eight-part series. This will only be exclusively available to Netflix subscribers internationally and will be ready to launch by the year 2019.

Since the filmmakers will display the ocean depths, remote forests, deserts, and the planet's ice caps, they will only be using the latest digital camera technology.

Alastair Fothergill and Keith Scholey, the directors of Silverback Films, whose projects include "African Cats" and "Frozen Planet," will be the ones to lead the production. Last Wednesday, the British producers of the series said that this time, they will focus on the Earth's last wilderness areas and the animals that are living there.

The eight-part series will be produced by the UK-based Silverback Films, and they will be collaborating with an independent conservation group, which is the World Wildlife Fund or WWF.

"Planet Earth" is considered one of the greatest TV series ever made that started in year 2006. It was described that in the sequel episodes, they will be using new storytelling techniques for multimedia platforms, that will capture more viewers.

The documentary series will pick up where it has left off and will showcase never-before-shot wilderness places. It will introduce the most interesting, fragile habitats, and precious species and places that are expected to withstand the impact of humanity through millions of years, so that the next generation, and future generations, will benefit and enjoy all these natural resources provided by the world.

The series directors Fothergill and Scholey, promises to wow the audience, and reveal the most amazing sights on our planet, to be shown in ways that they haven't presented before.

This series, they say, will open the eyes of the people to discover the importance of the wonders of the Earth's natural resources, especially in this time where conservation should be practiced.

This TV series will also strengthen the power of new media outlets like Netflix, over the cable outlets and traditional television broadcasts.
