Steve Irwin’s Family To Return To Animal Planet

October 24, 2017

When Steve Irwin died in 2006, a gaping hole was left in the reptile world. Many reptile (and animal) lovers grew up watching Crocodile Hunter, as Irwin brought them along on his expeditions.

The show was put on hiatus as Irwin’s wife, Terri, raised her two children and oversaw the Australia Zoo. Well, the Irwin family announced they are going to make a return to Animal Planet next year with new projects.

“We’re excited to be returning home to Animal Planet and our Discovery Communications family,” Terri Irwin said in a statement. “We look forward to the year ahead as we embark on new projects and adventures with Animal Planet.”

We are thrilled to have Terri, Bindi and Robert back in the Animal Planet family.”
