Following a wildly successful run in 2014 as the most-watched series
ever on National Geographic Channels internationally, and seen by more
than 135 million people worldwide on National Geographic and FOX, the
new season will once again premiere in the U.S. on both FOX and National
Geographic and globally on National Geographic in 171 countries and 43
languages.

In the vastness of space and the immensity of time, the number of worlds
to explore and stories to tell are virtually infinite. The first two
seasons of the COSMOS television series transported a global audience to
the farthest reaches and most deeply hidden recesses of the universe. In
the course of those journeys, the series dramatized the lives of many of
the forgotten searchers who contributed to the world's understanding of
who, when and where we are in the universe. COSMOS: POSSIBLE
WORLDS
 will venture to previously uncharted territories.

In conjunction with the launch of the new season, National Geographic
will publish a companion book, COSMOS: POSSIBLE WORLDS, by Ann
Druyan, the long-awaited follow-up to Carl Sagan's international
bestseller, COSMOS: A Personal Voyage. Sale date is February 19, 2019.

COSMOS: POSSIBLE WORLDS is produced by Cosmos Studios, the
Ithaca, NY-based company Ann Druyan co-founded in 2000, and Fuzzy Door
Productions, Seth MacFarlane's company. Druyan and Brannon Braga are the
series' writers. Druyan, MacFarlane, Braga and Jason Clark
executive-produce. "Like" COSMOS: POSSIBLE WORLDS on

About Cosmos Studios

Co-founded in 2000 by CEO and visionary Ann Druyan, Ithaca, NY-based
Cosmos Studios creates, produces, and distributes eye, brain, heart and
soul-nourishing science-based entertainment in all media.

Cosmos Studios aims to tear down the walls that have excluded so many
from the scientific enterprise. We work to demystify the language,
values, and drama of science, to give everyone the power of its
permanently revolutionary methodology.

Carl Sagan, and those privileged to work with him, demonstrated that
there is a world-wide appetite for compelling entertainment that
reflects our dawning awareness of cosmic evolution and our place in its
great story. There is a planet-wide hunger for images and dreams that
reflect our radically altered sense of who, where, and when we are…
where we might go, who we might become.

In collaboration with award-winning writers, artists, filmmakers,
producers, researchers, engineers, educators, artists, and a growing
list of partners across science, communications, and finance, we seek to
touch audiences with the soaring spiritual high that comes from grasping
science's central revelation- our oneness with the cosmos.
