Binge-Watch Carl Sagan’s Original Cosmos Series Free Online (Available for a Limited Time)

FYI. Carl Sagan’s 13-episode series Cos­mos orig­i­nal­ly aired in 1980 and became one of the most wide­ly watched series in the his­to­ry of Amer­i­can pub­lic TV. The show also won two Emmys and a Peabody Award.

Right now, you can watch the orig­i­nal Cos­mos episodes over on Twitch.TV. From time to time, Twitch airs marathon ses­sions of old pro­grams. They did Julia Child’s “The French Chef” back in 2016. Now it’s Sagan’s turn.

Usu­al­ly the videos are only avail­able for a few days. So you might want to start your binge-watch­ing ses­sion now. If you miss the boat, you could always pick up a copy of the show on Blu-Ray.

Twitch.TV orig­i­nal­ly aired the Cos­mos series last spring as part of a Sci­ence Week cel­e­bra­tion. Read their press release for more infor­ma­tion.

Update: Neil deGrasse Tyson just coin­ci­den­tal­ly announced this on Twit­ter: “Yup. We got the band back togeth­er. Anoth­er sea­son of Cos­mos is offi­cial­ly real. COSMOS: Pos­si­ble Worlds To air on & in a year — Spring 2019. Be there.”
