He’s considered a legend to many in the science community. A God among mere mortals to the public. The definition of “Black Excellence” to those in the African American community. But to Neil deGrasse Tyson, he’s just a man who loves science.
On January 13, 2018, it was announced that another season titled Cosmos: Possible Worlds will debut in March 2019 on Fox and National Geographic channels. It will once again be executive- produced, written and directed by Ann Druyan and executive-produced by Seth MacFarlane, Brannon Braga, who also is co-writer and director of the series, and Jason Clark. Neil deGrasse Tyson, the famed pop-culture icon, astrophysicist and host of the Emmy Award-nominated StarTalk, will return as host.
Continuing the legacy of its predecessors, Cosmos: Possible Worlds will translate the revelations of science into a lavishly transporting experience, taking audiences on a series of spiritual voyages of exploration. We are living in the golden age of discovery of new worlds to explore and possibly inhabit. In the vastness of time and the immensity of space, their number and the stories they contain are virtually infinite. The new season will reveal previously uncharted realms, including lost worlds and worlds to come, including those that we may one day inhabit in a thrilling future we can still have.
In conjunction with the launch of the new season, National Geographic Books also will publish a companion book, Cosmos: Possible Worlds by Ann Druyan, the long-awaited follow-up to Carl Sagan’s historic international bestseller, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.
At this year’s NYCC, The Koalition sat down with Tyson to discuss what adventures we can expect during the upcoming season.
