Cosmos: Possible Worlds
While first season is called ‘A Spacetime Odyssey’, the second season is titled ‘Possible Worlds’. This is appropriate considering the second installment is going beyond the immediately known celestial bodies and galaxy. The new season is also going to have a companion book releasing at the same time, which will be using the same name. It is a follow-up to Carl Sagan’s international bestseller Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.
The award winning first season is the most popular series ever for the National Geographic Channels. Internationally, it totals over 135 million viewers worldwide. The next season will have a similar wide release, in over 43 languages and 171 countries on Fox and National Geographic.
