13-Episode Sequel To Carl Sagan’s ‘Cosmos’ will star Neil deGrasse Tyson

13-Episode Sequel To Carl Sagan’s ‘Cosmos’ will star Neil deGrasse Tyson

Seth MacFarlane is taking on another iconic TV series, Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage. Fox has greenlighted Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey, a 13-part docu-series from Family Guy creator MacFarlane and late Sagan’s original collaborators – his widow, writer/producer Ann Druyan and astrophysicist Steven Soter. Envisioned as a successor to the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning original 13-part program, which was hosted by Sagan, the new Cosmos series will be hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. Underscoring MacFarlane’s commercial appeal, Cosmos will air on Fox in primetime, something pretty unprecedented these days for a science documentary series on commercial American television.

  1. Mrs Dibbly & I love Neil deGrasse Tyson, but too bad it’s on Fox. They’ll probably put it in a bad time slot, move it around so that the fans can’t find it, then kill it after 8 episode. I guess I’ll have to hold my nose & unblock the Fair & Balanced Network. Maybe.

  2. Carl Sagan’s Cosmos has had a huge effect on how I view the world.

    I can only hope this new Cosmos can inspire the people of today to appreciate science.

  3. Cosmos is still the best ever series on the Universe and our place in it. I agree with Jared, I hope it can inspire a new generation, we certainly need it right now.
