Season 1 — Episode Planet Earth II explores amazing animal dramas closer than ever before. Travelling through jungles, deserts, mountains, islands, grasslands and cities, Planet Earth II explores the unique characteristics of Earth's most iconic habitats and the extraordinary ways animals survive within them.
New technology has allowed individual stories to be captured in an unparalleled level of detail and for the first time viewers will be immersed in incredible landscapes and share the most dramatic moments in the lives of animals. From spellbinding wildlife spectacle to intimate encounters, Planet Earth II will take you closer than ever before.
From adorable pygmy sloths to huge living dragons, islands offer a refuge for the planet' s strangest creatures. But life on these isolated lands is full of unexpected challenges. The great mountain ranges are some of the planet's most spectacular landscapes, but they are unforgiving places to live in, and only a few animals have what it takes to live at extreme altitude. Mountain animals are amongst the most elusive in the world, and this film provides unique and intimate glimpses into their secretive lives.
Jungles provide the richest habitats on the planet - mysterious worlds of high drama where extraordinary animals attempt to survive in the most competitive place on earth. Flooded forests are home to caiman-hunting jaguars and strange dolphins that swim amongst the tree tops, while in the dense underworld, ninja frogs fight off wasps and flying dragons soar between trees.
While the jungle night conceals strange fungi and glow-in-the-dark creatures never filmed before. The world's deserts are lands of extremes that force animals to come up with ingenious ways of coping with hostile conditions, giving rise to the most incredible survival stories on earth. A pride of desert lions are so hungry they risk hunting a giraffe several times their size. Filmed for the first time, a tiny bat does battle with one of the world's deadliest scorpions, and in Madagascar, a locust swarm of biblical proportions is seen as never before.
Grasslands cover one quarter of all land and support the vast gatherings of wildlife, but to survive here animals must endure hostile seasonal changes. From Asia's bizarre looking saiga antelope, to the giant ant-eaters of Brazil, grassland animals have adapted in extraordinary ways to cope with these extremes. In the flooded Okavango, lions take on formidable buffalo in epic battles and on the Savannah, bee-eaters take advantage of elephants to help catch insects.
Cities may seem an unlikely place for animals to thrive, but they can be a world of surprising opportunity. Leopards prowl the streets of Mumbai, peregrine falcons hunt amongst New York's skyscrapers, and a million starlings perform spectacular aerial dances over Rome. Many animals, however, are struggling to cope in the urban jungle. As the architects of this environment, can humans choose to build cities that are homes for both them and wildlife?

In most of the human population had fled Earth to live on large orbiting space stations. Only a small number of humans remain on the Earth's surface as the Earth had become mostly uninhabitable.
Billionaire Devon Adair's eight-year-old son, Ulysses Adair, had contracted a rare, fatal disease called "the syndrome",  a condition whose existence is not acknowledged by the government and medical community.
It is theorized that this disease, which affects only children, is somehow caused by the lack of an Earth-like environment. Desperate to save her son, Devon puts together a group who will pioneer the effort to settle a planet 22 light-years away from Earth, on which other families with members thus afflicted can settle.
The eventual colonization of the planet, however, is opposed by the government. Secret monitoring and agent infiltration threaten the creation of the colony of New Pacifica. Hours before Adair's group intends to leave, a bomb is discovered, set to explode the hour the ship would leave. The Eden Project leaves immediately, jettisoning the bomb before detonation. In "The Church of Morgan", it is revealed this bomb was planted by the Council to stop the ship from leaving.
Twenty-two years later, the ship arrives at G, but it crash lands  a great distance from the planned landing site. With her group scattered on the planet and supplies missing, Devon marshals what survivors she can find and begins heading west to the planned site of New Pacifica. During their travels, Adair and her companions slowly learn to cope with life on the alien world, which at first seems superficially Earth-like but which is gradually revealed to have a very different ecologyincluding at least two different native sentient and humanoid species—a short and stout race at the level of development of hunter-gatherers with a propensity towards kleptomania known as "Grendlers" and the much taller and lankier "Terrians", who are capable of telepathic communication, can tear rents and tunnels in the earth through a pseudo-psychic process and whose well-being is somehow linked to that of the planet.
Through their various experiments, they have learned that they cannot remove the Terrians without killing the planet. This complicates matters, because Devon's son, who has been healed by the Terrians and who had begun to exhibit some of their unique characteristics, has become the key to the Council's plan for the planet.
The interactions among the original crew, the convicts, the government and the local aliens and their planet forms the basis of many of the story's plot lines, as the colonists learn more about their new home while trying to avoid detection by the Council.
The landscape and climate of the new planet where the ship crashed seems very much like that of harsher climates on Earthsuch as the southwestern United States. Water is scarce and scrub grows out of rock formations. In this area, three different species of life are discovered by Devon Adair and her group. Earth 2 broke new ground by placing Devon Adair as one of the first female commanders in a science fiction television show, preceding the much better known Captain Kathryn Janeway of Star Trek: Voyager by more than two months.
The overarching plot of the show and various individual elements helped explore the Gaia hypothesismainly through the Syndrome, its effects on many children, and the subsequent healing of the illness after the Eden Project arrives on G During the show, various political and social themes were addressed as well.Below is a complete Planet Earth episode list that spans the show's entire TV run.
