Join the heroic quest for knowledge as we set course for the stars with the twenty-first century reboot of Cosmos. Hosted by world-renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, this thirteen-part ground-breaking series will venture to new worlds, trace our roots back to the hearts of ancient stars, and travel across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale.Written by
Speaking on Nerdist podcast #489, Neil deGrasse Tyson said that "(the show will be airing) on Sunday night (March 9, 2014), in prime time after it had been promoted during the Super Bowl, FOX had the Super Bowl, after it had been promoted during the World Series in the bottom of the seventh inning in game three on Saturday night, and it is airing on one hundred seventy-one stations around the world in forty-five languages. Any one of those sentences is a mind-blow, the fact it is all happening together is a stunning statement that there is a recognition by forces that be that science deserves to be mainstreamed."

This was an absolute blast to watch! I was excited from the moment that I found out that Cosmos would be returning to TV. It was, and still is, one of the shows as a child that really made me feel an overwhelming awe about reality and life as we have come to understand it. I applaud Seth Macfarlane and the FOX Network for taking a chance, and bringing this amazing mini- series to a new generation. Also HUGE kudos to Neil Degrasse Tyson for really taking the reigns, and conveying such amazing topics in thought provoking narrative terms that my daughter, and all children, can now easily understand and enjoy immensely. I really thought that everyone involved handled these topics in an elegant way in which to minimize the offense that a few may try to find with these subjects in which scientific evidence can actually back up. Thank you, to everyone involved, for the beautiful and amazing masterpiece that is... Cosmos...
