There is no doubt that Comic Con in San Diego brings science fiction its day in the sun. Fantasy, horror, and (of course) comics are all genres also included in the yearly celebration. Though, rarely do we meet astrophysicists answering questions about the real universe, other planets, and if we ever going to find signs of life beyond our world. Cosmos: Possible Worlds gives viewers a chance to join Neil deGrasse Tyson for a trip around the universe to find answers and offer even more questions to prompt more scientific exploration. The new season premieres March 2019.

In the vastness of space and the immensity of time, the number of worlds to explore and stories to tell are virtually infinite. The first two seasons of 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.

In 2014 Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey became the most-watched series ever on National Geographic Channels internationally, and seen by more than 135 million people worldwide on National Geographic and FOX. The new season will once again premiere in the U.S. on both FOX and National Geographic and globally on National Geographic in 171 countries and 43 languages.

Executive producer/writer/director Ann Druyan and executive producers Seth MacFarlane, Brannon Braga, and Jason Clark, along with series host Neil deGrasse Tyson, were all on hand to share the sneak peek during their panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2018.

In conjunction with the launch of the new season, National Geographic will publish a companion book, Cosmos: Possible Worlds, by Ann Druyan, the long-awaited follow-up to Carl Sagan’s international bestseller, COSMOS: A Personal Voyage. This book will go on sale February 19, 2019.
