Bill Nye is returning to television with a brand new talk show series called, “Bill Nye Saves The World” on Netflix.
The talk show will explore the impact of science on politics, society and pop culture, according to Variety.
“Each episode of the series will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refute anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry.”
The show will stream on Netflix and is produced by Bunim/Murray Productions.
In a statement, Nye talked about his enthusiasm for the show as well as his mission to change the world,
“Since the start of the ‘Science Guy’ show, I’ve been on a mission to change the world by getting people everywhere excited about the fundamental ideas in science,” said Nye. “Today, I’m excited to be working with Netflix on a new show, where we’ll discuss the complex scientific issues facing us today, with episodes on vaccinations, genetically modified foods and climate change. With the right science and good writing, we’ll do our best to enlighten and entertain our audience. And, perhaps we’ll change the world a little.”
Who else was always so excited when the teacher rolled out the tv and played “Bill Nye The Science Guy” on rainy days? My teachers did that and it was the most entertaining science lessons ever!
The show is set to stream in the Spring of 2017
