“All Creatures Great And Small ss 2”: release date, announcement
The TV show is based on “All Creatures Great and Small”, which was already filmed in 1978. Then the audience saw 7 seasons. Therefore, film critics are confident that the new TV series will not be limited to one season.
p.s. It’s official: Season 2 of the light comedy “All Creatures Great and Small” is set to take place on September 16, 2021!
An informative show about the life of animals, whose owners are forced to turn to a veterinarian, is liked not only by adults, but also by young viewers. Therefore, the series is suitable for family viewing and does not have strict age restrictions.
James leads a healthy lifestyle. He runs in the morning, dreams of finding his calling and cherishes the idea of becoming a veterinarian. Parents believe that at his age he will have to think with his head, and if the desire does not coincide with reality, then he will have to sacrifice his dreams. One day, fate becomes favorable to James and he is invited to Yorkshire as an assistant to a famous veterinarian.
Taking a long journey to the appointed place, he immediately comes under criticism from Siegfried Farnon, who is the same veterinarian. People always turn to him for advice, although he is often arrogant, rude and even vulgar. Siegfried is by nature a very difficult person, demanding too much from his subordinates.
Only his housekeeper Mrs Hall takes care of the owner. It was she who invited James to come and become Farnon’s assistant. An optimistic young man, Herriot reacts steadfastly to attacks from his boss. They begin to travel to nearby villages and help people to heal their animals. Finally, James’s dream has come true! And even grumpy Siegfried does not bother him.
The love of the main characters for the animal world is explained by the fact that it brings them not only financial benefits, but also moral satisfaction. Both Herriot and Farnon are passionate about animals. They will never refuse help to someone who really needs it. And Miss Hall will always help them not to forget about important matters and set them up for a working mood!
The more the audience follows the adventures of James and Siegfried, the more they are imbued with sympathy for the animal world. The viewer will learn about the intricacies of working with animals, about caring for them, their habits, as well as about folk remedies that can help even with the most serious illness.
