National Geographic’s Weird but True! will become a Disney+ original with its upcoming third season, which will debut on August 14.
This is the latest original within the Disney family of linear networks to migrate to Disney+ after airing seasons elsewhere, joining Disney XD’s The Clone Wars and Freeform’s Disney Fairytale Weddings.
Two other Nat Geo original series, drama The Right Stuff and docuseries The World According to Jeff Goldblum, moved to Disney+ ahead of their debuts.
Vertically integrated streamers are tapping into their parent company’s resources for fresh original content, especially now that streaming platforms’ supply pipelines are starting to run dry because of the coronavirus pandemic-related production shutdown.
