Love Nature 4K Greenlights Orangutan Jungle School for Season 2


Orangutan Jungle School is getting a second season on Love Nature 4K, a joint venture between Blue Ant Media and Smithsonian Networks.

The new season of the natural history series, which is set at the Nyaru Menteng Sanctuary in Borneo, Indonesia, will air on Love Nature’s linear and streaming platforms internationally. In the U.S., it will air on Smithsonian Channel. Season one of Orangutan Jungle School is set to launch on Love Nature in Canada this December and Smithsonian Channel in the U.S. next year. The series is produced by New Zealand’s NHNZ.

Carlyn Staudt, executive VP of programming development at Love Nature 4K, said: “Orangutan Jungle School has captured the hearts and minds of Love Nature 4K’s audiences around the world because it has truly shown the remarkable ways these beautiful creatures are similar to us, while shining a light on the horrific environmental conditions they must endure. The inspiring BOSF [Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation] team act as our guides onsite, sharing their experiences and giving viewers a front row seat to some of the amazing work being done to save the lives of endangered animals.”

“The returning season of Orangutan Jungle School builds on all the fun, drama and emotion from season one, while following fan-favorite characters, like Beni and Valentino, and some new faces,” added Kyle Murdoch, managing director at NHNZ. “It’s such a privilege to work with BOSF and share these stories with viewers from all around the world.”

Judith Curran, writer and executive producer for Orangutan Jungle School, commented: “From pure entertainment to new scientific findings on primate behavior (including never-before filmed moments with these ingenious little apes) to emotional scenes that hold up a mirror to our own lives as humans, wildlife and nature fans can expect multiple levels of enjoyment from our latest installment of Orangutan Jungle School.”
