Award-winning directors Brendan and Emmett Malloy join the executive producing team, as well as this season's vanguard list of directors. Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Michael Rosenberg, Steve Michaels, Jonathan Koch, Ryann Lauckner and Kurt Sayenga are also returning as executive producers. Production has begun on the new season, which is slated to air in spring 2017 in 440 million homes in 171 countries and in 45 languages, as well as on the Spanish language network Nat Geo Mundo. The anthology series will once again shine a light on the world's leading scientists and how their cutting-edge innovations and advancements will change our lives in the immediate future and beyond. The series brings to life the stories, people and technology behind these breakthroughs, and shows how they are changing our world. Season one was hailed by critics as "ambitious," "innovative," "inspiring" and "fascinating." Season two will continue the tradition of tackling thought-provoking topics - including addiction, cyberterror, drones, cancer, big data and energy - with unique scientific perspective.
