Check out the first trailer for National Geographic Channel (NGC) and Fox’s Seth MacFarlane collaboration Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, the successor to Carl Sagan’s acclaimed series, which launches next spring.

National Geographic Channels International (NGCI) unveiled the trailer on Saturday (July 20) at Comic-Con. The 13-part series, hosted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, comes from executive producer/writer Ann Druyan and exec producer MacFarlane, and will premiere exclusively on NGC in 170 countries and 48 languages early next year.

NGCI will align its international premiere with the series launch on Fox and National Geographic Channel in the United States next spring.

“There’s never been a more important time for Cosmos to re-emerge than right now,” said MacFarlane. “I want to make this so entertaining, and so flashy, and so exciting that people who have no interest in science will watch just because it’s a spectacle.”
