Neil deGrasse Tyson’s ‘Star Talk’ Gets Second Season on Nat Geo Channel

National Geographic Channel has given an order for a second season of its new latenight talk show “StarTalk” before a single episode of the first season has even aired.

Courteney Monroe, chief executive of the network, announced the news at a press briefing held Wednesday. The second season will consist of 10 hourlong episodes.

The series is a spinoff of sorts of a podcast and radio program hosted by Neil deGrasse Tyson, the author and American astrophysicist who directs the Hayden Planetarium and recently hosted a revival of the popular PBS series “Cosmos” that appeared on Fox and National Geographic Channel in the U.S. In the series, Tyson brings together celebrities, comedians and scientists to talk over topics like space travel, the future of the Earth and extraterrestrial life in a way that combines popular culture and scientific thought.
