At Comic-Con San Diego, National Geographic Channel and Fox announced the new television series “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” will premiere spring 2014 in the US, as well as internationally in 170 countries and 48 languages. “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” comes from executive producer/writer Ann Druyan (“Cosmos”) and executive producer Seth MacFarlane (“Famlily Guy”). The new 13-part series will be directed by Brannon Braga (“Star Trek” franchise) and hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.

“There’s never been a more important time for “Cosmos” to re-emerge than right now. I want to make this so entertaining, and so flashy, and so exciting that people who have no interest in science will watch just because it’s a spectacle,” said MacFarlane.

“It’s a thrill to take the Ship of the Imagination out for another spin,” Druyan. We are going places none of us have ever been before,” said Druyan.

“Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” is a follow-up to the 1980 PBS series “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage” presented by Carl Sagan.   The new series was announced in 2011 and originally planned for 2012/13 release.

The series is produced by Druyan’s Cosmos Studios and MacFarlane’s Fuzzy Door Productions.
