Life on Our Planet is a ground-breaking new 8-part series created by Silverback Films in association with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television – premiering on Netflix 25 October. Narrated by Academy Award®-winner Morgan Freeman, it’s the story of life’s epic battle to conquer and survive on planet Earth.

Life on Our Planet is a ground-breaking new 8-part series
Audiences will see the story of life unfold through its most pivotal moments: from the first single-celled life form, to the first animals to move out from the sea and onto land, to the first creatures to take flight. Revisiting one of Earth’s longest-lived dynasties, the dinosaurs, viewers will bear witness to the cataclysmic downfall that led to the age of the mammals and the rise of the most dangerous animal the earth has ever seen: us.
As it traces our lineage across this epic journey, Life on Our Planet underscores our unique status as the only species in the four billion-year story of life to understand what is happening to our world and what is needed to put it right. But whatever future awaits, the past reminds us that life has always found a way.
