The creator of Bill Nye the Science Guy and the man who made science and bow ties cool is back on the screen!
Bill Nye, the scientist we all know and love from our childhood, is getting the talk show treatment on Netflix. According to the press release from the company, Nye will host the show, called Bill Nye Saves the World, and each episode “will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry.”
Nye said that he’s “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.”
This new show will probably be less kid friendly than the first, seeing as he’s going to be dealing with some controversial issues. But all that’s important is that Bill is back on our TV screens. His talk show will premiere in Spring 2017.
And if you’re tempted by nostalgia to watch Bill Nye the Science Guy, it’s available right now on Netflix!
