The Netflix documentary series could feature never-before-seen home videos of the Irwins.
The late Steve Irwin has been a major influence on not just his family but also his millions of fans. The Crocodile Hunter might not be here with us anymore, but his legacy continues, thanks to his lovely family members. Terri, Bindi, and Robert have continued to care for and treat animals with just the same passion as Steve did. And now looks like, we might be getting a new documentary series based on the Irwin Family and it's just what we needed.
Every time I watch this clip my heart overflows with emotion. The people we love are always with us. Love lives on no matter what & I think that is the most beautiful thing about our existence🙏🏼Thank you, Dad, this moment captured on camera made my whole life.— Bindi Irwin (@BindiIrwin) March 28, 2019

According to New Idea, the Netflix documentary series could feature never-before-seen home videos of the Irwins. The report also hinted that Terri is sitting on a 'treasure trove of VHS tapes' and is currently discussing with Netflix to create a show to celebrate her family's legacy. The report quoted a source as saying: "Terri's one step ahead of the game, as usual, and is pulling it all together for a really lush documentary. TV networks would write blank cheques for some of the stuff she has!"
They continued: "She's been documenting almost every moment of [her children] Bindi and Robert's lives. She'll likely have the birthing suite, too, when Bindi has her baby!" The source also said that Terri often looks at her old videos to reminisce the good times and how those are the last memories she has of her late husband Steve.
"She loves how some big stars have had their own stories produced for Netflix and would like to give her story the same treatment – she knows it's what fans would enjoy," they added.
BUZZ: Terri Irwin 'planning a Netflix documentary series' about her familyhttps://t.co/UWdRqnxvmc— U105 Radio (@U105radio) February 15, 2021
While nothing has been confirmed by either Australia Zoo or Netflix, we will keep you updated as soon as something is made official. Meanwhile, we had recently reported about the Irwin family opening an elephant hospital in Indonesia thus making Steve's lifelong dream come true. This would have been achieved in his time, had it not been for his untimely death. Steve Irwin tragically died on September 4, 2006, while filming a wildlife documentary in Queensland.
The elephant hospital was built via funds sent in from the Australia Zoo, which is owned by the Irwins. The vets from the Australia Zoo also provided quality training to the team at the hospital in Indonesia. Even the Irwins would oversee the elephants and their health. Terri spoke to Buzzfeed News about how "one of Steve's greatest goals" was achieved. She said: "We just — just — finished one of his greatest goals which were to open an elephant hospital in Indonesia. In Sumatra, when elephants step on a landmine or they get caught in a snare there was no hospital to treat them, and we now have just opened an elephant hospital, so it's pretty special. These are the things we talk about and it's so important to continue his mission".
