We’ve got news! We’ve got glorious news! Robert Irwin, the son of the legendary crocodile hunter, Steve Irwin, says his family’s show will be returning to Animal Planet and Discovery Plus for a second season.
That’s right, people — we will get to see another amazing season of Crikey! It’s the Irwins on Animal Planet and Discovery Plus. The show, of course, follows the lives of Terri Irwin, Bindi Irwin, and Robert Irwin — the family of the late Steve Irwin. Together, the family still operates the world-famous Australia Zoo. And they continue to work together to carry on Steve’s mission to bring people closer to animals. We can’t wait to see more of just that in a new season of Crikey!
Robert Irwin, the son and youngest of Steve Irwin’s two kids, posted a teaser of the new season on Instagram.
“We’re back!!! A brand new season of ‘Crikey! It’s the Irwins’ is coming in 2022,” Irwin captioned the clip. “Near misses, action-packed animal encounters, special family times, and some moments that I probably would have preferred not to be caught on camera. It’s not one to miss! See you on Animal Planet and Discovery+ January 1 at 8 p.m.!”
Fans Are Excited to Continue Following the Family of Steve Irwin
It’s safe to say that when the world was never quite the same after we lost Steve Irwin back in 2006. Thankfully, however, we get to see his dreams and his family’s legacy unfold on television through his wife and kids. Even Animal Planet, the network which airs Crikey! It’s the Irwins, is getting excited to show fans the new season.
“Can’t wait for everyone to see how special this new season is,” the official Animal Planet Instagram account wrote in the comments.
As for all of the rest of us regular fans of the show, it’s pretty safe to say that we are excited too. It’s another year we get to see the Irwin family do what they love and what they do best — love and care for animals at the beautiful Australia Zoo.
“Robert your voice sounds exactly like your dad,” one fan said. “I wasn’t watching the screen I was just listening and focusing on something else and I thought it was him!”
And how could we forget to mention the newest and the cutest addition to the show? Little Miss Grace Warrior, the granddaughter of the late Steve Irwin. Steve’s daughter, Bindi, 23, is the mom.
“Yesssss!!!!!!! Whooo Hooo!!! Love love this show!!!! And the newest addition of Grace Warrior!!!!” commented another fan.
