The new season of Cosmos was scheduled for March this year, but was delayed by complaints filed before Neil deGrasse Tyson. Now, Fox and National Geographic have announced the new date of 'Cosmos: Possible Worlds', which will be released next March 9, 2020.
It was in 1980 when 'Cosmos: a personal journey' by Carl Sagan landed to show us all kinds of scientific topics. In 2014, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson resurrected the classic documentary with 'Cosmos: a space-time odyssey' and will now take charge of this third season, under the title of 'Cosmos: Possible Worlds' which will feature 13 episodes different where different periods of time and a large number of corners of the universe will be explored.

From the origins of the universe with the Big Bang to a futuristic New York World's Fair in 2039, the series of 'Cosmos' will move us to lost worlds and explore possible futures, always under the scientific perspective.
"'Cosmos: Possible worlds' takes complex themes of astrophysics, astronomy and anthropology and makes them accessible and entertaining so that millions of people around the world can devour them," explains Courteney Monroe, global president of television at National Geographic.
