Get your telescopes ready: Fox and Nat Geo are returning Seth MacFarlane’s “Cosmos” for a new season, titled “Possible Worlds.” And yes, everyone’s favorite astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson will be back as host.
The Emmy-winning series hails from executive producer/writer/director Ann Druyan, as well as MacFarlane, Brannon Braga and Jason Clark.
“Cosmos: Possible Worlds” is scheduled to premiere globally in Spring 2019. In conjunction with the launch of the new season, National Geographic Books will publish a companion book of the same name, which is written by Druyan.
In the vastness of space and the immensity of time, the number of worlds to explore and stories to tell are virtually infinite. The first two seasons of the “Cosmos” television series transported a global audience to the farthest reaches and most deeply hidden recesses of the universe. In the course of those journeys, the series dramatized the lives of many of the forgotten searchers who contributed to the world’s understanding of who, when and where we are in the universe.
“Cosmos: Possible Worlds” is produced by Cosmos Studios and Fuzzy Door Productions. Watch a teaser above.
The 2014 “Cosmos” run ended up being the most-watched series ever on National Geographic Channels internationally.
