Apple TV+ today announced the premiere date for Trying Season 3 and revealed the final trailer for Prehistoric Planet, which also debuted new artwork.
Trying Season 3 will make its global debut with the first episode on Friday, July 22, 2022, with new episodes every Friday through September 9, 2022. The first two seasons are now streaming on Apple TV+.
After a dramatic end to season two, the eight-episode third season picks up with Nikki (BAFTA nominee Esther Smith) and Jason (SAG Award nominee Rafe Spall) waking up as new parents to two children they are still getting to know. Now they just have to keep hold of them, which proves to be trickier than they initially thought.
Thrown straight into the parental deep end, Nikki and Jason’s relationships with each other and with their nearest and dearest are tested as they desperately try to navigate the ups and downs of parenting — while hanging onto their kids, and their sanity.
In addition to Smith and Spall, the Trying Season 3 cast includes Eden Togwell (as Princess), Mickey McAnulty (as Tyler), Oliver Chris (as Freddy), Sian Brooke (as Karen), Darren Boyd (as Scott) and Robyn Cara (as Jen).
Trying is created, written and executive produced by Andy Wolton, directed and executive produced by Jim O’Hanlon, produced by Sam Pinnell, co-produced by Tim Mannion and executive produced by Josh Cole. The series is produced by BBC Studios.
The new Apple TV+ five-night event documentary series Prehistoric Planet, from executive producers Jon Favreau and Mike Gunton, and BBC Studios Natural History Unit (Planet Earth), will transport viewers 66 million years in the past to discover our world – and the dinosaurs that roamed it.
Debuting globally on Apple TV+ from Monday, May 23 through Friday, May 27, with a new episode daily, the series is presented by Sir David Attenborough and set to an original score by multiple Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer.
The series combines award-winning wildlife filmmaking, the latest paleontology learnings and state-of-the-art technology to unveil the spectacular habitats and inhabitants of ancient Earth for a one-of-a-kind immersive experience. Prehistoric Planet presents little-known and surprising facts of dinosaur life set against the backdrop of the environments of Cretaceous times, including coasts, deserts, freshwater, ice worlds and forests.
