Izzy’s Koala World Season 2 Cast: Who Can be in it?
Needless to say, season 2 will mark the return of the titular 11-year-old Izzy Bee as the main star. She lives on Magnetic Island off the coast of Australia. Izzy holds an innate capability of bonding with wild koalas and hence, is known as the Koala Whisperer. She resides with her veterinarian Mom, Ali, and her Dad, Tim, and their dog, Princess. The family’s home serves as a sanctuary for rescued koalas. Alongside Izzy, we will see her loving fam making a comeback in season 2 as well.
What Can Izzy’s Koala World Season 2 be About?
Magnetic Island, located off the east coast of Australia, is home to hundreds of koalas. The tree-climbing marsupials feed and live on the leaves of the eucalyptus tree while sleeping for 18-22 hours a day. Izzy and her family, who reside in the same locale, help in the rescue and rehabilitation of wild koalas — whenever they need help. The fam welcomes the animals to their home and tends to them until they are ready to go back to the wild.
Izzy’s siblings and best friends are koalas, among whom Princess Leia is her favorite. Leia had been rescued when she was a baby and believes Izzy to be her mom. Other koalas featured in season 1 are Rosie, Juliet, Chompy, and Muffin. Izzy is able to connect to each of them, thanks to her generous spirit and deep, magical, and unique intuitiveness. Toward the end, we see Izzy getting emotional as she allows Leia to enter the wild — her true home.
‘Izzy Koala World’ season will continue to follow Izzy as she develops more close friendships with koalas and other animals on Magnetic Island.
