Planet Earth II, with David Attenborough at the helm, finished it's UK run last night.
It will be shown on BBC America commencing January 28th 2017.
I know that isn't exactly a mainstream channel in the US, but if you have cable you'll probably find it lurking in the basement of your programme guide.
Worth a look.

Can't wait!

Though maybe I want to; Blu-Ray has no commercials and better video quality.

I own the box set of the Planet Earth program, from back before it needed a version number.

Superlatives fail me. I love that show. And the behind the scenes segments never spoiled the magic - - quite the opposite. The lengths they went to to document the Sysiphean efforts of the dung beetles to conquer Mount Guano, unbelievable.

Outstanding program.
