Steve Irwin’s Family’s New Animal Planet Series is Coming Sooner Than You Think


In case you missed it, the late Steve Irwin’s sweet family are getting a new Animal Planet series called “Crikey! It’s The Irwins,” and to say we’re excited would be a major understatement.

The show will star Steve’s wife, Terri, along with their two kids, Bindi (20) and Robert (14), showcasing the family and the rest of their crew (which includes Bindi’s boyfriend, Chandler Powell) as they live and work at the Australia Zoo, taking care of wildlife and managing their world-class wildlife hospital.

The Crocodile Hunter fans will recall that Steve Irwin tragically lost his life at age 44 in 2006 after being struck in the chest by a stingray. Ever since his passing, his family has remained dedicated to Steve’s mission of caring for wildlife and educating the world on the beauty of animals.

If the news has you excited, you don’t have to wait long! “Crikey! It’s The Irwins” will premiere on Animal Planet on October 28 at 7c.

The Irwins have been making lots of appearances over the last few weeks in preparation for their show— including Robert’s hilarious segment on “The Tonight Show” where he gave Kevin Hart the scare of his life.
