Few people have succeeded in permanently adding a tagline to their name quite like Bill Nye, more popularly known as “Bill Nye The Science Guy.” With a brand that strong, it’s no wonder Nye is back, although he’s updated his tagline. In “Bill Nye Saves The World,” the bowtie enthusiast brings celebrity guests into his science lab to tackle the greatest threats known to man. In the newly released trailer for the third season of the Netflix series, Nye can be seen drinking water recycled from urine, advocating for reducing our “foodprint,” and doing something involving a break dancer. (It’s unclear how that will save the world, but it sure looks fun).
In the six-episode season, Nye tackles the truth behind evolution, how climate change will impact foods of the future, and what pets can teach us about being human, with guests that include Arnold Schwarzenegger, Karlie Kloss, Margaret Cho, and Paul F. Tomkins. “Lady Dynamite” creator Maria Bamford will discuss the science behind addiction in what’s sure to be a standout episode. Michael Ian Black also returns for his “Mad Scientist” segment.
