Chris Packham And Michaela Strachan To Reunite For The Really Wild Show Reboot
If you loved CBBC growing up, we've got some exciting news.
Chris Packham is set to reunite with co-star Michaela Strachan for a very exciting reboot of The Really Wild Show.
While nothing has been confirmed just yet, a reboot of the CBBC show would see Chris and Michaela reunite for the first time in years, after the nature show ended back in 2006.
Revealing the plans, Chris told the Daily Star: "There is an appetite for some form of Really Wild Show reunion.
"It remains something Michaela and I are passionate about - and the BBC are keen. It's been batted backwards and forwards but for the moment the programmes we're able to make are limited."
As with all our fave TV shows over the last 12 months, the coronavirus pandemic has caused some delay to the duo's plans.
With Michaela living in South Africa - and currently unable to travel to the UK - it's not currently clear when the reboot would begin production.

"We're hoping by Springwatch the regulations allow Michaela to travel," Chris explained.
The popular kids' show ran for 20 years, between 1986 and 2006, and was broadcast by CBBC. It educated kids on the importance of nature and wildlife, with Chris and Michaela fronting the show.
Fans were treated to a one off reunion back in 2017 when the duo teamed up for a special episode to raise awareness for the endangered kiwi bird.
This is just the kind of feel good telly we need in 2021! The sooner production begins, the better.
It's not the only reboot that's been announced recently.
Last week, Sarah Jessica Parker revealed the Sex And The City reboot is happening, with new series, And Just Like That expected to begin production in May.
It certainly seems we're in for a major trip down memory lane!
