Last year our herpetology staff headstarted 103 hellbenders, and looks forward to receiving another group of eggs this breeding season. To learn more about hellbenders, visit their exhibit at the World of Reptiles.
Zoo - Season 2
It's kind of hard to tell sometimes, isn't it? They were working well together, but maybe there was a reason they never made it past a certain point in their flirtation. I suppose we'll find out on Zoo Season 2 Episode 12 or Zoo Season 2 Episode 13 which is a double header acting as our season finale.
Josh Salatin (Show Me A Hero) and Alyssa Diaz (Army Wives) are set as series regulars on the second season of CBS summer drama series Zoo. Based on the No. 1 bestseller by James Patterson, the series from CBS TV Studios, is a global thriller about a wave of violent animal attacks against humans across the planet.
A baby klipspringer is born on one of the coldest nights of the season and is nursed back to health, but will his mother accept him when he returns home? The California condor team at the Safari Park goes to unbelievable lengths to save this highly endangered species. Joanne, a gorilla born under difficult and unusual circumstances, turns five years old. And the wildlife care specialists and veterinary staff work together to unravel the mystery of why the rare Mangshan (Mang Mountain) pit vipers are having spinal issues.
Four-month-old Mkhaya, the youngest baby elephant in the Safari Park herd, learns to use her trunk. It's breeding season for Andean bears; will Alba become a first-time mom? The San Diego Zoo vets examine Mandazzi the gorilla and assist gorilla heart research. And, we join Jeff the snake chaser on the trail of the elusive coastal patch-nosed snake.
The coming-of-age series received critical acclaim in the home country. It has garnered high praise for its inclusion of challenging yet universal issues. The show is painfully relatable since it is inspired by true events. After binge-watching the first season, fans are already seeking information about a potential season 2. Well, here is all that we know about it!
The group of friends that are at the center of the storyline includes Christiane (Jana McKinnon), Stella (Lena Urzendowsky), Babsi (Lea Drinda), Axel (Jeremias Meyer), Michi (Bruno Alexander), and Benno (Michelangelo Fortuzzi). Other significant characters are Karin (Angelina Häntsch), Dijan (Nik Xhelilaj), Nati (Valerie Koch), and Robert (Sebastian Urzendowsky). If there is a season 2, we may see all the actors reprise their respective roles, with maybe a few exceptions. New cast members may join the fold if the potential second season introduces fresh characters.
By the end of the first season, another heartbreaking tragedy pushes Christiane to the edge. Following this, she attempts to overdose but survives. While Benno ends up in prison, Stella gets her life together and becomes successful. Michi goes to Prague, and the gang is no longer together. In the end, we learn that Christiane has been sober and agrees to share her story with some journalists. However, Christiane still has a little bit of heroin with her.
Season 2, which is currently in production, will feature even more animal stories, including the arrival of a new visitor favorite: a baby hippo who was named Amahle by the public (pictured above); the introduction of two rescued mountain lion cubs to Koya, the resident adult female; and koalas Thara and Hunter have successfully produced a joey, according to the cable channel. Additionally, a partnership between San Diego Zoo and Reteti Elephant Sanctuary in Kenya brings representatives from the elephant sanctuary to the zoo to train and develop care plans and create an infant formula for baby elephants. Later in the season, viewers will get to follow San Diego Zoo representatives as they visit the sanctuary in Kenya to provide further assistance.
The series has had a consistent release schedule on CBS with each season consisting of 13 episodes and they air between June and September. Season 3 began airing on CBS on June 29th and is expected to end in the first few weeks of September after 13 episodes.
Zoo averaged 2.65 million viewers in its third season, down nearly 2 million viewers from season two, which averaged 4.45 million viewers. In the demo, the Sept. 21 season three finale drew a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49, even from the season three opener but down two-tenths from the season two finale.
Zoo is the longest-running original summer scripted drama on CBS. The decision to cancel the series comes after the network renewed the Alex Kurtzman-produced summer drama Salvation for a sophomore run. That series landed an SVOD deal with Amazon, helping to make the low-rated thriller financially viable for another season. Salvation and Zoo were the lone scripted series to air on CBS this past summer.
With the onslaught of new shows that come in and out of networks each season, not many of them are ever truly safe. And with CBS' Zoo, which has seen staggering ratings and viewership over the past season, the future may be unclear for it as well. And after Thursday's season finale airs, fans are definitely going to be asking, will Zoo return for Season 4? The show's future is uncertain for the sci-fi thriller series and the ratings aren't doing it any favors.
Even then though, Zoo was renewed for Season 3 ahead of it's Season 2 finale, but as of right now, there has been no official announcement for Season 4 of Zoo. And the better question is, if this is the end, will the Season 3 finale treat it that way to at least give viewers the kind of closure needed with a show they've no doubt followed blindly for three seasons so far?
