Neil deGrasse Tyson has picked up where Carl Sagan ended, and his newly rebooted Cosmos series look pretty astounding, as you can see in this trailer with the first actual footage.

We are exceptionally excited for the 13-episode series titled Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey, produced by Seth MacFarlane and Sagan's original 1980s collaborators — a whole team of scientists and writers including astronomer Steven Soter and author Ann Druyan. This could be the feel-good science TV series we've been missing. But most importantly, it looks good — real good.


Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey will premiere on March 9th.
