"COSMOS: POSSIBLE WORLDS" TO PREMIERE MONDAY MARCH 4 ON NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC

(Washington, D.C. - October 29, 2018) National Geographic today announced the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning COSMOS will return for its third season beginning Monday, March 4 at 10/9c.

Airing as a global event on National Geographic in 172 countries and 43 languages, it will also air on FOX in the US.

The 13-part series will once again be executive-produced, written and directed by Ann Druyan (NASA's Voyager Record, "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage," "Contact") and executive-produced by Seth MacFarlane ("Family Guy," "The Orville," "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey"), Brannon Braga ("The Orville," "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey"), who also is co-writer and director of the series, and Jason Clark ("The Orville," "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey"). Neil deGrasse Tyson, the famed pop-culture icon, astrophysicist and host of the Emmy Award-nominated "StarTalk," will return as host.

Continuing the legacy of its predecessors, COSMOS: POSSIBLE WORLDS will translate the revelations of science into a lavishly transporting experience, taking audiences on a series of spiritual voyages of exploration. The new season will reveal previously uncharted realms, including lost worlds and worlds to come, and those that we may one day inhabit in a thrilling future we can still have.

Co-created by the legendary astronomer Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan in 1980, COSMOS has transported a global audience to the farthest reaches and most deeply hidden recesses of the universe. In the course of those journeys, the series has examined the real stories of the forgotten searchers who helped us understand our place in the universe.

The highly anticipated return of the worldwide phenomenon follows a wildly successful run in 2014 as the most-watched series ever on National Geographic Channels internationally, being seen by more than 135 million people worldwide on National Geographic and FOX.

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. Sale date is February 19, 2019.

COSMOS: POSSIBLE WORLDS is produced by Cosmos Studios, the Ithaca, NY-based company Ann Druyan co-founded in 2000, and Fuzzy Door Productions, Seth MacFarlane's company. Druyan and Brannon Braga are the series' writers. Druyan, MacFarlane, Braga and Jason Clark executive-produce. "Like" COSMOS: POSSIBLE WORLDS on Facebook at CosmosOnTV.

About Cosmos Studios

Co-founded in 2000 by CEO and visionary Ann Druyan, Ithaca, NY-based Cosmos Studios creates, produces, and distributes eye, brain, heart and soul-nourishing science-based entertainment in all media. Cosmos Studios aims to tear down the walls that have excluded so many from the scientific enterprise. We work to demystify the language, values, and drama of science, to give everyone the power of its permanently revolutionary methodology. Carl Sagan, and those privileged to work with him, demonstrated that there is a world-wide appetite for compelling entertainment that reflects our dawning awareness of cosmic evolution and our place in its great story. There is a planet-wide hunger for images and dreams that reflect our radically altered sense of who, where, and when we are... where we might go, who we might become. In collaboration with award-winning writers, artists, filmmakers, producers, researchers, engineers, educators, artists, and a growing list of partners across science, communications, and finance, we seek to touch audiences with the soaring spiritual high that comes from grasping science's central revelation- our oneness with the cosmos.
