Series info and premise

BBC America's The Hunt is a British nature documentary narrated by famous naturalist Sir David Attenborough. It originally premiered on BBC One in the UK in 2015, and subsequently debuted on BBC America on July 3, 2016. Alastair Fothergill is the executive producer, and Silverback Films, NDR Naturfilm, CCTV-9 and BBC are behind the production. The musical score is by Steven Price, who received an Academy Award for his soundtrack to Gravity. The first series contains seven episodes.

The documentary explores the relationship between prey and predator and the process of the hunt. The strategies utilized by predators are detailed, as well as the methods employed by the prey to escape death. Five of the episodes feature a single key habitat each, such as plains, forests, oceans, the Arctic, and coasts, one is devoted to nature conservation, and yet another to strategy and technique.

Reception and prospects of renewal

In addition to the UK and the United States the series also aired successfully in Australia, Estonia and Japan. The series did very well in the UK, with viewership ranging from 5.8 million for the premiere to 4.54 million for season finale. This landmark BBC original program features one-hour episodes full of rarely seen dramatic footage and curious commentary. There's no focus on the gory details, for which can express our sincere gratitude. There has been no news from the network on the future of this compelling documentary series, but we will be sure to monitor network announcements and keep you informed.
