Season 1 was so full of great information and awesome visual explanations, I can only imagine that 5 years later it will be even better.

I'm glad they didn't do it 2 years consecutively
14 Jan 2018 05:06 - +1244
I wish they would have ditched ndt for someone less condescending
14 Jan 2018 06:38 - +577
smoke weed and watch black science man tell me about things, cool!
14 Jan 2018 05:47 - +505
For fans of this i would also recommend the wonders of the universe/solar system/ life series by Brian Cox. All great series on the same subject matter while still also as comprehensible

[Here's a very short teaser.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGdsVhYGMes) This is great!

FUCK YESSS!!!! This is the best news I’ve heard all week! INTERNET HIGH FIVES FOR EVERYONE!! 🤚🤚🤚

Bro tip! If you are into these kind of programs I highly recommend BBC's "Wonders Of The Universe (2011)". Anyone know more sciency/space programs? My problem with Neil in Cosmos is I feel like he adresses me like a child, but I don't want to be hit with mathmatical equations either. Something in between.

This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I'm pretty sick of NDGT. I saw one of his live performance lectures, and he was condescending and mean, particularly during the audience question session.

If you want to watch a Cosmos-like series that goes even more in-depth into complex topics such as string theory and time, watch Through the Wormhole on Science Channel. And guess what makes it even better? It's narrated by Morgan Freeman

I really like the show but sometimes I find it a little difficult to take it serious when the voice animations for the cartoons come up. I swear you can hear Stewie Griffin on some of them especially since it's obvious that Seth McFarlane does some of them.

Can't wait, hoping for some cool stuff, especially after the data of the black hole at the center of our galaxy comes back

r/iamverysmart is gonna be hosting cosmos again?
14 Jan 2018 08:30 - +42
<ndgt>Actually, "returning" would mean I previously turned somewhere.</ndgt>

I enjoyed the last series but I think they should find a different style of animation for the historical parts or do live action like the original. I found the comic book style digital drawing slightly boring to watch but the CG space parts were great.

Did you know that in a mirror you can only kiss yourself on the lips?

Too bad. Never been impressed with NDT’s hosting of the series. But, Brian Cox would have been more “Sagan-esque”with a British accent.
14 Jan 2018 06:39 - +9
I'm surprised this wasn't implied after season 1. Took them long enough.
14 Jan 2018 07:06 - +4
For some reason the section about how wolves became dogs makes me actually tear up.
14 Jan 2018 07:31 - +3
Cosmos just gave me so much fun anxiety. Just the way they put the size and age of the galaxy into perspective it was terrifying and exciting at the same time.
14 Jan 2018 08:04 - +3
This is the greatest news I've heard all year. I watch this every night when I go to bed. Cry every time.
14 Jan 2018 07:04 - +3
i’m hype and all, but i’m waaayyyyyyy more hype for season 6 of How the Universe Works 👀
14 Jan 2018 07:28 - +3
For anyone who liked Neil Tyson's Cosmos, you will be enamored by Carl Sagan's 'Personal Voyage'.
14 Jan 2018 11:32 - +1
For the love of God! Please! Please! Let us watch the original run with Carl Sagan again. Netflix, Amazon, someone, let us stream Sagan. He speaks with an elegance and dignity and compassion for the world and our species in a way that Neil DeGrasse Tyson is simply incapable. This is great news. I'm very excited to hear this information. Sagan.

The first season of Cosmos with Neil deGrasse Tyson was aired the first half of 2014. In September of 2014 [Tyson was busted fabricating Bush's 9-11 speech](https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2014/09/27/neil-degrasse-tyson-admits-he-botched-bush-quote/). After that his material came under more scrutiny. His stuff on the Islamic Golden Age [also turned out to be be fiction](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qLSzhuTCXc). He said some [really dumb stuff when it comes to the cardinality of infinite sets](http://www.rationalskepticism.org/general-science/neil-degrasse-tyson-doing-a-disservice-t53874.html). He embarrassed his supporters with some [bad biology](https://freethoughtblogs.com/pharyngula/2016/03/17/some-days-its-very-hard-to-defend-neil-degrasse-tyson/). And has made [a lot of other wrong claims](http://hopsblog-hop.blogspot.com/2016/01/fact-checking-neil-degrasse-tyson.html). In the last four years Tyson's credibility has taken some serious hits. This 2nd season of the new Cosmos will give him even more notoriety. I predict increased scrutiny will not be kind to Tyson.

meh. wasn't really blown away by NDT in Cosmos. Didn't even finish the first season. Sagan is the one and only
14 Jan 2018 12:19 - +1
I will die a happy man if, at the very end of the series, he says, "People don't think space be like it is, but it do."

I'm glad it's happening, I really enjoyed the first run. It had some really fascinating information and Tyson shines in that kind of role. But I was disappointed by the characterization of the persecution of science by the church. I'm not even Christian or religious, but I've always had a fascination with religious history and he was really off the mark in a lot of ways. I mean the church was absolutely not perfect and did some horrendous things, but they also created and supported the institutions for natural science to grow and develop. Honestly most of felt forced into the show anyways. The history of the development of science is fascinating and should be included in the show, but I feel like a more neutral viewpoint would be nicer. The first run just took a rather tactless religion evil/science good approach, some nuance would be nice But that said I'm thrilled it's getting another run, I'm really looking forward to watching it with my kids.

Really not a fan of the cosmos remake, definitely not a fan of Tyson either. It’s a shame they couldn’t find someone more of Sagan’s caliber to host it, maybe even change hosts each season.

If they're going to do the animated shorts again, I hope they get a new team to do them. I did not like the design style at all...

They need to get rid of the excruciatingly boring cartoon parts that ruined the last season.
