What is Season 2 of 'Prehistoric Planet' about?

According to the description of the second season's official trailer, this installment of Prehistoric Planet will give us all new dinos to fall in love with. We're getting "new dinosaurs, new habitats, and new scientific discoveries" that have taken place all around the world.

Just like the first season, the second season is narrated by Sir David Attenborough.

And this season, joining the lineup is the Tarchia, which is one of the largest ankylosaurs (an already large type of armored dinosaur, according to the Natural History Museum in London). Alongside the Tarchia, we'll see the Isisaurus (a sauropod from India), the Pectinodon (a skilled hunter of its time with claws to match), and the Quetzalcoatlus and Hatzegopteryx which are called the "biggest creatures ever to soar the skies," according to a press release shared with Green Matters.
