A new documentary coming to Netflix later this month is giving us serious David Attenborough vibes.

Night on Earth, which launches on the streaming platform on the 29th January, has been likened to the nature documentary maker's programmes and it's easy to see why comparisons have been made.

Netflix's new show focuses on the natural world and its inhabitants during the time in which most of us are asleep, a tactic the TV legend also employs.

Viewers will be treated to a fascinating insight into the world of wildlife at night, complete with David Attenborough style voiceover, though sadly the man himself does not appear in the show.

Very similar in style to the iconic nature presenter's programmes, Night on Earth is shot with some impressive video technology, including infrared and underwater filming techniques, to show what animals get up in the small hours.

Following groups of animals, including lions on the hunt and bats on the wing, it's been compared to David Attenborough's recent series, Seven Worlds, One Planet.

The legend's recent BBC series delved into the unseen wilderness of the world's seven continents, focusing on a different continent - and their weird and wonderful wildlife - in each episode.

Five of the six episodes of Night on Earth will explore a different habitat to show how the demands of surviving the darkest hours shapes all sorts of animals in different ways.

And the final episode will follow wildlife around the world over the course of one night, from sunset to sunrise, tracking different species as night progresses into day.

Set over six episodes, Netflix teases the new show with a trailer that suggests "we have always been strangers to the night".

"A place of unnerving sound and imagined terrors," the narrator adds.

But now, with the help of groundbreaking new technology, viewers will be able to witness the nocturnal world with a first-look at what happens to nature at night.

"All around the planet the most iconic animals are revealing themselves in a completely new light," the voiceover continues. "When the light fades, new worlds awake."

And, if the trailer's anything to go by, the impressive show will certainly be one to watch. We can't wait!

Meanwhile, in other David Attenborough news, the documentarian will also soon appear in a new film all about his life.

In the upcoming film, the documentarian will take centre stage while looking at an issue close to his heart: saving the natural world.

Night on Earth will launch on Netflix on 29th January.
