Entertaining and interesting

My 4 yr old loves it, we both enjoy the interesting and bizarre future species in each episode, we know there's always a happy ending, no concerns.

Scary at times but funny, too.

My 7 year old son loves it! It's imaginative and the characters are helpful to one another. Not only is there a positive message but it's kind of funny.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

Packed with adventure and bolstered by scientifically based speculation from experts in a number of fields, The Future Is Wild is a wild ride for tweens who are curious about the planet's future. There are also plenty of gentle reminders about the dangers of excessive energy consumption and other resource woes that will resonate with ecologically aware viewers. But the series isn't all about science and discovery; there's plenty of humor and character development to maintain tweens' interest as well.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
