There are no further plans to continue groundbreaking series Dynasties, hosted by Sir David. A source said: “It will no doubt be a huge blow to the series’ fans, who tuned in from the US to New Zealand for the second season, and it was widely expected a third to follow.
“But the programme has now been set aside while the team focus their efforts elsewhere.” It is said that the BBC feel the “baton” has been handed to already-announced show Kingdom, which is considered to be a “spin-off” of Dynasties.

“It will focus on the conflicts and dynamics that exist across various different animal groups, in one location, rather than on just one particular family or tribe.” The second series, which aired two years ago, transported audiences into the dangerous, surprising and breath-taking worlds animals inhabit.
Jack Bootle, Head of Commissioning, Science and Natural History, said at the time: “Dynasties II will be a gripping look at the lives of four remarkable wild animals as they struggle to build a family against the odds. With characters you fall in love with, and genuine life-and-death stakes, this will be a series every bit as thrilling as the greatest drama.”
Mike Gunton, Executive Producer, said at the time: “Being able to tell these stories is a wildlife film-makers dream – and just like in series one, they are going to be a gripping rollercoaster ride.” In 2018, more than eight million viewers were captivated by each episode of Dynasties, and the unbelievable daily struggles faced by David the chimpanzee, Charm the lioness, Blacktip the painted wolf and more.
