In 2014, Fox rebooted Carl Sagan’s classic documentary series, Cosmos: A Personal Journey, with astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson as host. Four years later, Fox and National Geographic have announced they will be bringing the series back for a second season, titled Possible Worlds.
The networks made the announcement today during the Television Critics Association winter press tour, and deGrasse Tyson and producer Seth McFarland confirmed the news on Twitter, saying that the season will air in Spring 2019 on Fox and the National Geographic channel.
Sagan hosted the original Cosmos in 1980, which was at the time the most successful US public TV series of all time (it was later overtaken by Ken Burns’ documentary The Civil War). The rebooted version, titled A Spacetime Odyssey, covered a broad range of topics, such as the scale of the universe, the history of science, and climate change, and was well received by audiences and critics.
