The show will look a little more like that feisty Bill Nye of late than the cartoonish Nye of the 90s. Netflix describes the talk show's focus as "dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims." That should give a good indication where it's headed, but Netflix said it outright as well, calling the tact he'll take "unfiltered."
"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 in a statement. “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."
The show is set to premiere spring 2017. Bill. Bill. Bill. Bill. Bill.
