    Arriving next year, Meerkat Manor: Rise of the Dynasty (wt) is a new instalment in the Meerkat Manor series, the television phenomenon renowned for its compelling, character-led storytelling. The series is a BBC America co-production with Oxford Scientific Films, and is a heartstring-tugging, dramatic tale of survival revolving around three families who are descendants of the legendary meerkat matriarch, Flower. These neighbours and rivals who share a bloodline are forced to compete for food and resources in an environment that is undergoing a great deal of change: the Kalahari Desert in South Africa. The 13, 30-minute episodes will premiere on BBC America in 2021.

    Loved this show. But it got hard to watch when sh!t got real, eg injuries and death. I know it's nature, and Nature's a b!tch, but I found it hard to watch animals in distress.

    For some time perspective, Meerkat Manor ran from 2005 to 2008. Been a long time.

    I'll give it a try. Thanks for sharing this, new member.

    Yeah it's insane how long ago that feels. I only recently rewatched the whole series in 2019.

    Same & no problem at all :)

    I just hope that it will be as good as original in the way it was filmed.
    The original had problems with information on names being different which makes things very confusing.

    I've wanted to watch Meerkat Manor for a while, turns out it's on Prime so I started it and, cool, one of my absolute favorite actors - Bill Nighy - is the narrator.

    Welcome to TCF! Your first post!

    A quick Google search turned up this nugget of info. Hope it helps...

    We've got some exciting nature news! BBC America has announced today (February 18) that BAFTA-winning actor Bill Nighy is set to narrate Meerkat Manor: Rise of the Dynasty, the new installation of the Meerkat Manor series. A BBC America co-production with Oxford Scientific Films, the 13 half-hour episodes will premiere this summer as part of BBC America’s Wonderstruck programming line-up. This will be Nighy’s first time narrating the series’ U.S. broadcasts.
