Cosmos, StarTalk: Neil deGrasse Tyson Series to Return Following Investigation

The statement says Tyson’s shows will return on National Geographic TV and Fox at a date to be determined

Cosmos and StarTalk are returning to Fox and National Geographic's lineups following an investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against host Neil deGrasse Tyson.

While the channel did not elaborate on its findings, it did announce that Tyson will be returning to host the remaining 13 episodes of StarTalk in April. With regard to the allegations against Tyson, the channel did not give any details about the investigation.

Fox and Nat Geo released a joint statement soon after: "We have only just become aware of the recent allegations regarding Neil deGrasse Tyson".

The second season of Cosmos, sub-titled Possible Worlds (itself a follow-up to 2014's Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey) was supposed to debut on Fox Sunday, March 3 before hitting NatGeo a day later. Both networks later halted those plans following the controversy surrounding Tyson.

Late last November, National Geographic Networks and Fox said they would examine reports that Tyson behaved in a sexually inappropriate manner toward two women.

Tyson denied the accusations in a Facebook post but said he welcomed the investigation.

Late past year, both the Fox network and National Geographic released a joint statement: "We have only just become aware of the recent allegations regarding Neil deGrasse Tyson". Friday's statement did not address the complaints or investigation.
