About Cosmos: Possible Worlds
Cosmos: Possible Worlds is a follow-up to the 2014 television series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which followed the original Cosmos: A Personal Voyage series presented by Carl Sagan on PBS in 1980.
“This third season of ‘Cosmos: Possible Worlds’ is our boldest yet,” said Druyan. “The ‘Ship of the Imagination’ will carry us places we never dared to venture before: lost worlds and worlds to come, deep into the future and straight through that hole in the curtain masking other realities — and all of it rigorously informed by science and made real by lavish VFX.”
Cosmos: Possible Worlds first aired on the National Geographic channel in March 2020. It is a 13-part series presented by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
