BBC America renews 'Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan' for second season


Wild Things


BBC America's original adventure-nature series 'Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan' was renewed for a second season earlier today. In case you haven't been lucky enough to catch an episode of the series, it features Monaghan, Charlie from 'LOST,' as he travels to the far reaches of the globe in Monaghanorder to come face to face with some of the strangest, largest, deadliest things in the animal kingdom. Presumably they included 'with Dominic Monaghan' in the official series title so that viewers wouldn't confuse the show with the Denise Richards film from the 1990s when they came across it in the guide; after all, Spike shows the feature about once a year, don't they?

Beyond his fan-favorite role on 'LOST,' Monaghan starred in the series 'Flash Forward' as well as 'Goodnight Burbank' and 'The Unknown.' Many fans recognize him as Meriadoc Brandybuck (or Merry) from the award-winning 'The Lord of the Rings' trilogy of feature films from Peter Jackson.

Born and raised in Berlin, Germany, Monaghan moved to England with his family at age twelve. The actor certainly isn't afraid to get up close and personal with the critters he encounters on 'Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan,' as this teaser video shows:


Monaghan also acts as executive producer on the series, where he puts himself in the sort of danger that most actors are protected from by their over-bearing producers. Monaghan is a nature lover, and has been active in the planting of trees, cacti and the pod-seeds of mature hedge-row bushes. He owns a small forest in India, and has also worked with the animal rights group PETA. He keeps several insects as beloved pets; 'Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan' is his series about sharing his love for the stranger animals that share our planet with BBC America's viewing audience.

The second season of 'Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan' will debut in 2014.
