National Geographic renews Cosmos with Neil deGrasse Tyson for a second season in 2019, entitled Cosmos: Possible Worlds.

National Geographic (DStv 181 / StarSat 220 / Cell C black 261) has renewed Cosmos for a second season that will be broadcast in 2019, entitled Cosmos: Possible Worlds.

The second season of the rebooted Carl Sagan series will retain the same creative team behind-the-scens as during the first season of Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey, with Seth MacFarlane as executive producer, Ann Druyan as executive producer, writer and director and executive producers Brannon Braga and Jason Clark.

The renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson will once again return as the presenter of the 13-episode second season that will again be broadcast worldwide on FOX in America and on National Geographic in the rest of the world.

Cosmos: Possible Worlds, produced by Cosmos Studios and Fuzzy Door Productions, will be accompanied with a simultaneous book release written by Ann Druyan with the same title.

"In the vastness of space and the immensity of time, the number of worlds to explore and stories to tell are virtually infinite," says National Geographic.

"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 will venture to previously uncharted territories."
