Neil deGrasse Tyson’s ‘StarTalk’ Ordered for Second Season by NatGeo
The world renowned astrophysicist’s podcast was picked up by the network in January 2015.
Announced by Chief Executive Courteney Monroe at a press briefing on Wednesday, the second season will consist of 10 hour-long episodes.
Star Talk will act as a bridge between the worlds of science and pop culture, with guest hosts including celebrities, comedians and scientists.
The show will be taped in front of an audience at the American Museum of Natural History‘s Hayden Planetarium, where Tyson serves as director.
Last year, Tyson’s Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, a collaboration with Family Guy‘s Seth MacFarlane, garnered 135 million viewer across 10 different 21st Century Fox networks. It later also won an Emmy Award.
StarTalk airs on Mondays starting April 20 at 11/10c on NatGeo. Check out a few previews below.
