If this news doesn’t get the explorer in you going, I don’t know what will!
As fans know, this is the first season of Cosmos since 2014 but second since the original Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage that aired on PBS network.
Developed by Ann Druyan, collaborator and wife of the late Carl Sagan, and hosted by Neil DeGrasse Tyson, its second part, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, aired on FOX in 2014. The show won many accolades including the Peabody and Emmy awards.
The next season is titled Cosmos: Possible Worlds and will explore what Earth’s future could look like.
Druyan has been associated with other science or related productions, namely, NASA’s Voyager Record, “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage,” “Contact”.
Cosmos: Possible Worlds will come to the FOX network on September 22. The 13 episodes of the new season have already aired on National Geographic in March and April of this year.
Along with Ann Druyan serving as the executive-producer, writer and director of the show, Seth MacFarlane, Brannon Braga and Jason Clark will be the co-executive producers.
Continuing the legacy of the great Carl Sagan to bring the science of outer space to the masses, COSMOS: POSSIBLE WORLDS will translate the revelations of science into a lavishly transporting experience. It will take audiences on a series of spiritual voyages of exploration.
In its official press note, FOX stated: “Created and produced in partnership with the National Geographic Channel, which aired the series this spring, the new season will reveal previously uncharted realms, including lost worlds and worlds to come, and those that we may one day inhabit in a thrilling future we can still have.”
