Bill Nye to "Save the World" with New Netflix Series

It's been nearly 20 years since Bill Nye the Science Guy went off the air, but scientific pop culture is more popular than ever. As such, it makes perfect sense that Netflix would decide to give Bill Nye a new show.

No longer just content with being a science guy, Bill Nye appears to have much loftier ambitions on the new show. After all, it's called Bill Nye Saves the World.

According to Indiewire, the show's synopsis promises to explore some hot-button issues: "Each episode will tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry."

Topics mentioned include vaccinations, climate change and genetically modified foods.

Watch Bill Nye try to save the world when his Netflix show arrives this spring.
