Journey back to the vast plains of Tanzania in the second season of the landmark series SERENGETI this summer on Discovery.

New stories will unfold for the world's most captivating animals as they stop at nothing to survive and protect their families in the beautiful but demanding lands of Eastern Africa.

Serengeti II premieres Sunday, July 18, at 8P ET on Discovery. All six episodes will also be available on discovery+ starting July 18.

The ground-breaking series created and produced by Emmy®-winner Simon Fuller (“American Idol,” “So You Think You Can Dance”) Simon Fuller and directed and produced by Emmy®-winning wildlife filmmaker John Downer, will revisit our favorite families as well as meet new ones along the way in season two of SERENGETI.

The next installment of the six-part series gives unrivaled access to one of the most pristine and unspoiled corners of Africa. Academy Award®-winning and Emmy® nominated actress Lupita Nyong’o also returns to narrate the series.

Season two picks up one year after where season one ended, and many familiar faces are back - Kali, Sefu, Nalla, Tembo, Bakari and Shani - are growing and facing new challenges. We are also introduced to Aiysha the cheetah, daughter of season one's KiKay and her cubs, along with Shani’s stallion Punda, the leader and protector of the family and father to all of the babies.
