Check Out the Trailer for Bill Nye’s New Netflix Show, "Bill Nye Saves the World"
Bill Nye is back, and he's out to save the world!

If you, like many modern grown-ups, owe your love of science and critical reasoning to the wonderful Bill Nye the Science Guy, then good news—thanks to the power of Netflix, everyone's favorite bow tie-wearing scientist is returning with a brand new show, just in time to celebrate Earth Day.

While the title of the show is Bill Nye Saves the World, it seems that this salvation will primarily come in the form of fighting ignorance, as the show's trailer promises that Bill will tackle "sex, global warming, GMOs, technology", and even "alternative medicine", helping audiences to become more informed about many of the biggest scientific issues facing the modern world.



That said, in typical Bill Nye fashion, this isn't going to be a dusty lecture series—with celebrity guests include Zack Braff, Donald Faison, Rachel Bloom, and Wil Weaton, and fun regulars including Karlie Kloss, Emily Calandrelli, and Nazeem Hussain, this show looks like it'll be every bit the wacky, over-the-top fun that you'd expect from Bill Nye and a team of entertaining, enthusiastic scientists.

The show will debut on Netflix on April 21, the day before Earth Day, which is almost certainly not a coincidence, as Bill Nye has a lot to say on the subject of climate change and the consumption of our planet's natural resources.

While the hyperbolic title of the show is an obvious exaggeration (Bill Nye won't be saving the world—at least, not single-handed), considering that the political landscape is making scientific discovery and learning a more difficult pursuit, it's nice to know that the Science Guy still has our backs.
