Fox has announced that it’ll once again be doing the Lord’s work of keeping Neil DeGrasse Tyson too busy to tweet for a while, with Variety reporting that DeGrasse Tyson’s science-philosophy series Cosmos has been renewed for a second season. Produced by Seth MacFarlane, and airing once again on both National Geographic and Fox, Cosmos: Possible Worlds is set to arrive in Spring 2019.

Inspired by Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Journey, DeGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey was an unlikely hit in 2014, getting American audiences excited (however briefly) about discussions of science and the wider universe. That series was executive produced by Ann Druyan, who was both Sagan’s widow, and a writer on the original Cosmos, and who’ll be returning in a similar capacity for Possible Worlds.
