The Netflix premiere of Bill Nye Saves the World is finally here! You can check out season 1 of the series at 3am ET/12am PT on April 21.
On the show, the famous Bill Nye will tackle a variety of topics from a scientific point of view. In the words of IndieWire, “Netflix promises that Nye will dispel myths and refute anti-scientific claims while bringing in special guests, conducting experiments and demonstrations, ‘and ultimately letting the facts lead the argument.'”
Tyler The Creator is the artist behind the theme song for the show.
In an interview with USA Today, Nye says, “Our hope is to present a scientific viewpoint on issues of society.” He reveals that the show will cover issues from global warming to topics that “have come into stark relief” since President Trump was elected.
Nye will conduct live experiments in front of a studio audience, and a list of high-profile celebs will serve as correspondents, like Karlie Kloss, and comedians Joanna Hausmann and Nazeem Hussain. Guests include Joel McHale, Martin Starr, Tim Gunn, and Steve Aoki.
Nye tells USA Today, “You’re not gonna change everyone’s mind, but maybe we can give people a nudge… It’s not magic; it’s science!”
Bill Nye (born William Sanford Nye) is best known for his famous PBS children’s science show Bill Nye the Science Guy which ran from 1993 to 1998. He has been seen across various social media platforms as a science educator, and is currently the CEO of The Planetary Society.
