‘Buckle Up’ for the 2nd Season of ‘Crikey! It’s the Irwins’

By NTD Newsroom

The family of  late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin is back for the second season of “Crikey! It’s the Irwins”

“Crikey! It’s the Irwins” highlights Irwin’s wife Terri and their two children, Bindi and Robert, on their adventures looking after animals at their Australian Zoo since October of last year.

“It’s gonna be so good. It is action-packed. It’s amazing. It’s like 10 times the action and like, everything from season one,” Robert said.

Irwin died in 2006 while snorkeling at the Bait Reef in Queensland, Australia.

He was filming a documentary, “Ocean’s Deadliest,” when he was stung by a stingray. The stingray apparently stung him several times and hit his heart, killing him.

“He was the best dad on the planet. He was our hero and still is. So for us, we really want to carry on in his footsteps and make sure that everything he worked so hard for continues on into the future,” Bindi said.

The second season of “Crikey! It’s the Irwins” debuts on Oct. 5 on Animal Planet.
