He may have never left our hearts, but Bill Nye is now coming back to our screens. That’s right, friends, Bill Nye the Science Guy is finally making a return to television. Well, it’s not quite television, but it’s the 21st century equivalent. Next spring, “Bill Nye Saves the World” will make its debut on Netflix, giving you a whole new series to binge watch until the wee hours of the morning. But this is one show you won’t have to feel bad about — as Variety reports, the talk show will “explore science and its impact on politics, society, and pop culture.”

It’s been years since kids (and adults) across the nation were simultaneously entertained and educated by “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” but while the Emmy Award-winning show might have gone off the air, Nye certainly has remained a mainstay in pop culture. With his sharp commentary around issues like global warming, this science guy has a personality too big to not be in the spotlight.
According to the official synopsis from Netflix, “Each episode will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting antiscientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders, or titans of industry.”
“Since the start of the ‘Science Guy’ show, I’ve been on a mission to change the world by getting people everywhere excited about the fundamental ideas in science,” said Nye. “Today, 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. 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.”
