It feels like one of these dinosaur event series comes out every time there is a new Jurassic World film about to hit theaters. This time though, the pedigree is there for sure, and who isn't in the mood to watch dinosaurs? I am literally always in the mood to watch them stomp around, only watching this we will actually learn something. Prehistoric Planet will debut across five nights starting on May 23rd on Apple TV+.
