Bill! Bill! Bill! Bill Nye the Science Guy!

Bill Nye has finally returned to the small screen once again. Bill Nye the “Science Guy” will star in a new Netflix original show, “Bill Nye Saves the World.” The show is planned to launch in the Spring of 2017.

According to an Aug. 31 Netflix release, “Bill Nye Saves the World” will star Bill Nye as he talks about scientific topics that are misunderstood by the general public.

Bill Nye has had a long career, mainly his widely popular “Bill the Science Guy” PBS show from 1993-1998. Most of his show is still used today in schools for educational as well as entertainment purposes.

According to IndieWire, a film review website, Nye has spent his life trying to get people excited about science, and he’s happy that he can work with Netflix to educate the public about commonly discussed issues.

Netflix has promised that Bill Nye will get to keep his “unfiltered style”of speaking rapidly and use of random noises that us millennials have come to love.

“Bill Nye Saves the World” will surely become a new fan favorite for science lovers and for the new generation of students.

“I can’t wait for the show to come out,” sophomore Eitan Weinbaum said. “I loved his old show and I’ll love this one too.”
