Lord Of The Rings - Dominic Monaghan's Creepy Tv Show Picked Up For Second Season

Lord Of The Rings and Lost star Dominic Monaghan's travel and nature show has been picked up for a second season.

Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan, which debuted in Britain late last year (Nov12) and in America in January (13), was a hit and picked up a Critics Choice nomination for Best Reality Series.

Perry Simon, the general manager of BBC America, who snapped up the U.S. rights to the show, says, "The first season of Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan was an amazing thrill ride that introduced viewers to fascinating rare creatures and exotic locales, and we can't wait to set off on new journeys with Dominic.

"His vast knowledge of these animals and infectious enthusiasm make him the perfect host for this signature BBC America adventure series."

Monaghan adds, "I'm excited to travel the world and continue to tell stories about the rare and beautiful animals we share this planet with on season two of Wild Things. Thanks to all the fans and to BBC America for all their support on a project that means so much to me."

He had a blast travelling the world looking for the giant huntsman spider, hairy scorpion and Goliath beetle, among other creepy-crawlies on the show and, promoting Wild Things earlier this year, he told Wenn he was far from convinced his globe-trekking was done.

He explained, "I'd like to see an animal called the fossa in Madagascar, which is very similar to a wolverine or a large weasel... They live in the jungles and they're known as the ghost of the forest. They're very shy creatures. You don't see a lot of them.

"I'd also like to cage dive with great white sharks, I'd like to swim with the whale shark, I'd like to see polar bears. I'm fascinated by animals in general. There are lists of animals I'd like to see.

"I just wanna keep exploring and I'd like to find a species that has not been known to science before and then maybe call it after my family name. Maybe in these places like Papua New Guinea or in the rainforests of South America there will be something that has never been discovered."
