The Aquarium on Animal Planet was a great show to watch with the family as we love the Georgia Aquarium and enjoyed seeing the behind the scenes with the staff and the animals. It has just been announced that we will be getting Season Two of The Aquarium as Animal Planet has announced the next season has been greenlit. We should get to see some of our favorite animals again from the first season of The Aquarium and hopefully get introduced to some new ones as well. The amount of work that it takes to keep all the animals safe and healthy is amazing and we like learning about the staff as well.
The Aquarium has had great ratings for Animal Planet and hit a great demographic of adults, but it is also a great family show as well, especially for children interested in sea life. If you can make it over to the Georgia Aquarium you will not be disappointed and you may even get to meet some animals and the staff from The Aquarium as well.
Animal Planet announced today it has greenlit THE AQUARIUM Season Two. The series, which documents the daily behind the scenes at Georgia Aquarium in addition to the vital role it plays in aquatic conservation around the world, premiered on May 19 to nearly one million viewers. THE AQUARIUM focuses on the stories of the thousands of special animals who call the 10 million gallons of water at the Atlanta-based aquarium home; the bonds the animals share with the staff who dedicate their lives and careers to their care; and Georgia Aquarium’s global conservation efforts.
This season THE AQUARIUM followed the aquarium’s biologists, researchers and aquarists during their fascinating day-to-day activities. Audiences were introduced to an array of animals with memorable stories, including southern sea otter pups, Mara and Gibson, who were rescued from the California coast; African penguins Charlie and Lizzie, who have been together for 25 years; a very curious rescued green sea turtle named Tank; and a plethora of other animals that reside at the aquarium including jellies and piranhas. The staffers also traveled to Cape Town, South Africa to help rehabilitate African penguins and assist in the release of a group of these penguins back into the wild.
THE AQUARIUM is Animal Planet’s highest-rated freshmen series for 2019 to date* among Adults 25-54, in addition to also being the second highest-rated freshmen series in two years, second to CRIKEY! IT’S THE IRWINS (2018-2019) and third to THE ZOO (2017). U.S audiences can stream all episodes of THE AQUARIUM in their entirety on the Animal Planet GO app.
