Clever kids and adorable animals rush headlong into new adventures in the season 2 trailer Apple TV+ dropped Tuesday for Jane. The work of famed ethologist and conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall inspired the TV series.

The mission-driven family show’s second season debuts April 19 on Apple TV+.

Jane tells its stories through a blend of live action and CGI effects. It won an Emmy Award for its first season’s visual effects, actually.

Apple TV+ described the second season of Jane teased in the fun new trailer this way:

The mission-driven series for kids and families is inspired by the work of world-renowned ethologist and conservationist, Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and a United Nations Messenger of Peace. From Emmy Award winner J.J. Johnson (Dino Dana, Endlings, Ghostwriter), Sinking Ship Entertainment and the Jane Goodall Institute, the new five-episode season of Jane premieres Friday, April 19.

Ava Louise Murchison (Reacher) stars as Jane Garcia, a 9-year-old budding environmentalist on a quest to save endangered animals. Using her powerful imagination, Jane takes her best friends David, played by Mason Blomberg (Shameless), and Greybeard the chimpanzee on epic adventures to help protect wild animals all around the world. Because, according to her idol Dr. Jane Goodall: “Only if we understand, will we care. Only if we care, will we help. Only if we help, can they be saved.”

And Goodall offered high praise shows like this one.

“I believe in the value and importance of a series like Jane to inspire children and their families,” she said. “Apple TV+ and Sinking Ship Entertainment’s continued commitment to green storytelling ensures that more young people are encouraged to take action to save their world.”

So Jane marks Sinking Ship Etertainment’s second Apple Original series. The first? Daytime Emmy Award-winning series Ghostwriter.

Johnson created Jane  and executive produces it along with Christin Simms, Blair Powers, Matt Bishop and Andria Teather.

In addition to its Emmy, the show got praise in the Environmental Media Association Awards’ Children’s Television category.
