The Netflix original series Bill Nye Saves the World has been confirmed for season 2 with the release of an official announcement trailer. Serving in small part as a 21st century update to the seminal 1990s children’s educational series Bill Nye the Science Guy, the latest talk show program starring real-life American mechanical engineer Bill Nye sees the beloved TV host and scientist setting his sights on explaining popular concepts in modern scientific research as they intersect and react with politics, pop culture, and society.
After taking the time to refute various urban myths and anti-scientific claims made in the real world, Nye has taken to hosting the thirteen-episode first season of Bill Nye Saves the World to answer various questions and concerns surrounding many prominent topics – most notably including climate change, alternative medicines, and even video games. Following the first season order from Netflix earlier this year, it would appear that the online streaming network has officially renewed the show for a second season.
In the footage featured above, potential viewers of Bill Nye Saves the World can rest assured that Nye and his five co-hosts – namely YouTube educator Derek Muller, fashion model Karlie Kloss, comedian Nazeem Hussain, comic writer Joanna Hausmann, and TV producer Emily Calanrdelli – will all return for season 2 on Netflix. Prefaced by a stream of anti-scientific postulations and claims curated from Twitter, the trailer for season 2 promises for more open engagement with many of the same themes and topics explored thus far.
Bill Nye Saves the World is thoroughly determined to reach a new audience in its core aesthetic approach and design, and as such its talk show format featuring a rotating panel of top industry spokespeople, experts, and popular entertainers should continue to perform well in season 2 for Netflix. And by featuring an all-new theme song composed by popular Millennial recording artist Tyler, The Creator, Nye should have no problem in appealing to a target demographic who presumably grew up watching his popular PBS series as children.
Only time will tell whether or not fans of Nye and his new show will tune in for season 2 when Bill Nye Saves the World returns to Netflix. On that note, here’s to hoping for the very best from Nye and company as things continue to develop behind the scenes of his latest venture in educating the masses on the fundamentals scientific research by way of an original entertainment talk show.
Bill Nye Saves the World season 2 will premiere on Netflix.
