The Irwins are following in Steve’s footsteps after announcing they’re starring in a brand new TV show set in their beloved zoo.

Terri, Bindi and Robert revealed Crikey! It’s the Irwins will debut next month and judging from the promo, it’s going to be khaki-tastic

Bindi, 20, took to her Instagram account to give the exciting news to fans, saying she couldn’t wait to continue her “Dad’s important work”.

“I am so happy to announce that our brand new Animal Planet series will premiere on October 28th,” she wrote. “We can’t wait to share our story with you as we continue Dad’s important work.”

“This feels like a beautiful new life chapter. I hope to see you there.”

The short clip starts with 14-year-old Rob talking about life at Australia Zoo saying, “It’s an amazing place to live.”

“Our alarm clock in the morning are the tigers roaring,” he beams. We’re not jealous at all.

Then Terri explains how their family set up works, telling viewers the trio all work and live together on the property that Steve grew up in with his parents Bob and Lyn.

“We’re all about carrying on in our dad’s footsteps,” Bindi declares, as the words “Khaki is back” appear on the screen.

Steve died aged 44 during an accident with a stingray off the coast of Queensland in 2006.

He was best known for his TV show Crocodile Hunter, but also worked tirelessly to preserve native Australian wildlife.

In July, Terri, 53, opened up on how his sudden death affected Bindi and Rob, who were just eight and two at the time.

“I think Bindi grasped it, she understood…” she said on an episode of Anh’s Brush With Fame. “But it was harder with Robert.”

The wildlife warriors are loved not just here in Australia but around the world.

In 2015 Bindi won US TV show Dancing With The Stars and earlier this year, the late Steve was honoured on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

We’re sure Steve would be proud.
