Bill Nye’s new Netflix talk show, Bill Nye Saves the World, officially has a premiere date: April 21st. Nye made the announcement at an event in New York City today, suggesting that it’s only too fitting that it airs on the eve of Earth Day.
A “fact-based” talk show
The new series will feature celebrities like Donald Faison and Rachel Bloom tackling topics like sex, global warming, and alternative medicine. Nye told the audience, with a wry scoff, that it will take a “fact-based” approach to informing its audience.
The series is Nye’s big return to television after his landmark PBS series Bill Nye the Science Guy. That series turned Nye into a household name, allowing him to make frequent appearances in media in the years since. Obviously, we’re looking forward to this one.
