The Crocodile Hunter Family has announced that they're returning to Animal Planet, 11 years after the death of Steve Irwin, aka the Crocodile Hunter.

"We're so excited to be returning to Animal Planet and our wonderful Discovery Communications family", Robert said.

The network also released a statement, welcoming the Irwin's back to the Animal Planet family. Animal Planet was the original home of The Crocodile Hunter from 1996 to 2006, when Steve tragically died after his heart was pierced by a stingray's barb while he was filming. "Their passion for animals, love for their family, and leadership in conservation awareness left a strong legacy that continues today. We are thrilled to have Terri, Bindi and Robert back in the Animal Planet family", wrote Patrice Andrews, General Manager of Animal Planet, in a statement.

It's the news Wildlife Warriors have been waiting for - the Irwins are returning to Animal Planet with a new TV show.

"So watch out for next year, we have wonderful new adventures coming to your television screen", Bindi adds.

Leicester, Premier League champions in 2015-16, are third bottom of the table after failing to win in their past six games. "My honest thanks also to the players, who have always been a pleasure to work with".

The Irwins are carrying on the legacy of their late patriarch, Steve Irwin, who spent his life learning about and educating others about wildlife, particularly reptiles. She actively speaks out and supports conservation issues, including the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve, a 135,000-hectare property in Cape York dedicated to Steve.

Steve met his American-born wife Terri while she was vacationing in Australia in 1991. Their daughter Bindi, now 19, hosted her own series on Discovery Kids entitled "Bindi the Jungle Girl", which premiered in 2007, and also won season 21 of "Dancing with the Stars".

Robert, has a natural curiosity and loves learning about wildlife and the Australian bush.

It's still not clear what form their Animal Planet work will take. Their son Robert, who is 14, also co-hosted a show on Discovery Kids called "Wild But True", and has made appearances on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" to show off some of Australia's animals. For us, conservation work isn't just what we do.

Terri, Bindi, and Robert confirmed the news with a short video posted to their various social media accounts.
