Whale Wars Rages On

Animal Planet’s award-nominated show has been dropped a line.

It turns out audiences really do love to see courageous men and women fighting for a good cause, and television big shots are taking notice. Whale Wars, the ever-alluring show that documents the Sea Shepherd's whale-saving voyages, has been renewed for a third season on Discovery's Animal Planet. Now the channel's second-best performing series in network history, Whale Wars will make its next season premiere in summer 2010. Season two's finale raked in 1.3 million viewers, thus making it the third-highest ranking cable network among the 25 to 54 age range at the 9pm slot. Clearly, viewers will be waiting with breath that is bated.
