At Comic-Con, Fox and National Geographic released a first look at the highly anticipated return of the Emmy Award-winning worldwide phenomenon Cosmos.
The next installment of the series, Cosmos: Possible Worlds, will premiere on Fox and National Geographic in March 2019.
To say the first two seasons of Cosmos were popular would be a wild understatement. The series earned executive producer/writer/director Ann Druyan an Emmy Award for writing and a Peabody Award for producing. In 2014, Cosmos was the most-watched series ever on National Geographic Channels internationally. It was seen by more than 135 million people worldwide on National Geographic and Fox.
That’s because everyone is secretly a space nerd. We all love learning more about the vastness of space and the intricacies and effects of time. There are other worlds out there to explore, discover, and learn about. Millions of people are looking for that information. Cosmos took viewers into the hidden depths of the universe and out among the farthest reaches of space.
The series also dramatized the lives of many of the forgotten searchers, thinkers, and scientists who contributed to the world’s understanding of the universe and our place in it. Now, Cosmos: Possible Worlds, will venture to previously uncharted territories. Pop-culture icon, astrophysicist and host of the Emmy Award-nominated StarTalk, Neil deGrasse Tyson, will return to host the new season of Cosmos.
In conjunction with the launch of the new season, National Geographic will publish a companion book, Cosmos: Possible Worlds by Ann Druyan. It will serve as the long-awaited follow-up to Carl Sagan’s international bestseller, Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.
The companion book will be available on February 19th, 2019.
