Fans of Carl Sagan’s “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage” will be pleased to hear that Fox has its sequel lined up to premiere in 2014, titled “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.”

At San Diego Comic-Con, or SDCC, a trailer for “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” was revealed on Sunday. The sequel will follow a 13-part format similar to “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage,” originally hosted by the famous late American astrophysicist, cosmologist and astronomer Carl Sagan. American astrophysicist and Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium Neil deGrasse Tyson will continue where Sagan left off in the upcoming documentary television series.

The “Cosmos” documentary series covers a wide range of subjects related to science, including the human role in the universe and the origin of life, among many others. The series was originally produced in 1978 and 1979 by a Los Angeles PBS affiliate KCET and later released as a VHS box set. The series was forgotten for some time until 2000, when it was rereleased on DVD format.

“Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” is currently being executive produced by Seth MacFarlane, creator of “Family Guy,” and Ann Druyan, Sagan’s widow. The series is expected to be released sometime in spring 2014 on Fox.
