Seth MacFarlane Teases Cosmos 2 Announcement

The Orville star Seth MacFarlane hints that the much beloved science miniseries Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey may be gearing up for a second season of highly entertaining and educational television. Cosmos: A Personal Voyage debuted as a 13-episode PBS series in 1980, hosted by Carl Sagan. It was a revolutionary moment for science-themed television, winning Emmys and Peabodys and becoming the most watched series in PBS history. MacFarlane, mostly known for the decidedly lowbrow humor of FOX animated series like Family Guy and American Dad, was a lifelong fan of Sagan’s series, and used his clout with FOX to revive the series in 2014, now hosted by popular astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. The new series featured Tyson in a Star Trek like space vessel, narrating a new scientific subject each week. The series repeated the original’s critical success, but was a modest ratings performer, and future installments have been an open question since the first season wrapped.
