Over three decades after it aired, Carl Sagan’s groundbreaking, 13-part TV series Cosmos:A Personal Voyage will finally get a sequel, and with who other than Neil deGrasse Tyson to host.

According to the producers, the new series will tell “the story of how human beings began to comprehend the laws of nature and find our place in space and time. It will take viewers to other worlds and travel across the universe for a vision of the cosmos on the grandest scale. The most profound scientific concepts will be presented with stunning clarity, uniting skepticism and wonder, and weaving rigorous science with the emotional and spiritual into a transcendent experience.”

It is set to air sometime in 2013. Let’s just hope the producers don’t fuck this up.

Can’t wait.
