Following the completion of an investigation by National Geographic Channel into allegations of sexual misconduct by famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, the channel announced it is moving forward with the two shows he hosts, “Cosmos” and “StarTalk.”
Variety reports that Nat Geo did not elaborate on the results of the investigation.
In a statement, Nat Geo said: “‘StarTalk’ will return to the air with the remaining 13 episodes in April on National Geographic, and both Fox and National Geographic are committed to finding an air date for ‘Cosmos.’ There will be no further comment.”
Variety notes that “Cosmos: Possible Worlds” and “StarTalk” had been in limbo for months, since the allegations against Tyson surfaced.
“Fox had originally scheduled the new season of ‘Cosmos’ to premiere on Sunday, March 3, while Nat Geo had slated a second window to begin on Monday, March 4. Both networks later had to scrap those plans,” Variety notes.
