An Update on the ‘Cosmos’ Reboot!

Many of you will recall this excited bit of writing from July of last year:

If you’re as big a fan of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage mini-series as I am, which is only the most widely watched PBS series in the world, then you’re probably well aware of the fact that an all new version, Cosmos – A Spacetime Odyssey, hosted by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, has been in the works.

Well, while I haven’t been able to find an exact premiere date for the new show, they have released its first official trailer – an awesome spectacle in its own right!

Cosmos – A Spacetime Odyssey!

Well my friends, after reading the Rebooting ‘Cosmos’: Neil DeGrasse Tyson Explains Why Iconic TV Series Returns in 2014 article on Space.com yesterday, and then following that with a little searching around, I am as pleased as punch to bring you this update to my previous post! 😀

First, there’s this nicely revised version of the series trailer…

Then this cool discussion at New York Comic Con, featuring Neil DeGrasse Tyson and the show’s producers: Ann Druyan (Sagan’s widow), Brannon Braga and Mitchell Cannold, on why they thought the timing was right for a new version and what they hope it will mean for a new generation of viewers…

Then there’s this awesome image from the new FOX website for the show…

And last, but most certainly not least, a Sunday, March 9, 9pm premiere date for the show!
