Netflix Green Lights Second Season Of Bill Nye Saves The World

Netflix has given the go ahead to an additional season of its in-house production Bill Nye Saves the World.

Netflix released the first season of the educational program this past April to critical success. The show marked Nye’s first appearance as a television host since the cancellation of his last show The Eyes of Nye. Departing from the style and tone of his Emmy Award-winning series Bill Nye the Science Guy, the show attempted to appeal to older audiences and tackle more topical subjects but ended after one season in 2005.

No word has been offered as to what topics Season 2 of Bill Nye Saves the World will take on. It is also unknown who might appear as a guest on the series.

Deadline, the source of this story, shares the following information about the Netflix original program:

Bill Nye Saves the World is produced for Netflix by Bunim/Murray Productions. Gil Goldschein and Julie Pizzi serve as Executive Producers for Bunim/Murray Productions. Michael Naidus (The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson) serves as showrunner and Executive Producer. Writer and standup comedian Mike Drucker serves as Head Comedy Writer; and, astronomer, author and award-winning science communicator Phil Plait serves as Head Science Writer.

Bill Nye is an environmental advocate, television host, and licensed mechanical engineer with over two decades of successful public advocacy.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
