Netflix is continuing its apparent quest to let us relive our childhood in our adulthood. First it was "Fuller House," and now it is a new Bill Nye (aka the "Science Guy") talk show.
The streamer announced today that everyone's favorite TV scientist will host his own talk show, "Bill Nye Saves the World," starting in spring 2017. Naturally, the show will take advantage of Nye's background in science, engineering, and inventing -- not to mention millennials' nostalgia for hours spent watching "Bill Nye the Science Guy" in the '90s. In each episode, Nye will examine different topics through the lens of science, debunking myths and common false claims along the way.
"I'm excited to be working with Netflix on a new show, where we'll discuss the complex scientific issues facing us today, with episodes on vaccinations, genetically modified foods and climate change," said Bill Nye in a press release. "With the right science and good writing, we'll do our best to enlighten and entertain our audience. And, perhaps we'll change the world a little."
Whether he changes the world a little or actually saves it as the title suggests, the talk show will be an interesting one to watch. Nye isn't just going to talk -- he'll demonstrate science in action and have special guests as he proves to us once again that "science rules" in his fun and quirky way.
