We’re beyond excited for the premiere of Bill Nye Saves the World on Netflix and for one reason in particular: Alton Brown makes a guest appearance.
In the trailer for Bill Nye’s new show, out April 21, we get a glimpse of fellow science geeks Alton and Bill up to something in a laboratory setting. As they toss their heads back in cackles of laughter, mysterious liquids in hand, we can only imagine what they’re concocting. If this episode is anything like a hybrid between Alton’s Eat Your Science tour and Bill’s classic performances, we’re in for a wild ride.
This news comes on the heels of Alton Brown’s announcement that Good Eats is returning, kind of. The Food Network host is bringing back a show similar to Good Eats but called something different and available only online. In a tease to his fans, Alton mentioned his relationship with Bill Nye — once calling him his “hero” — admitting, “I’m not the Bill Nye of food. He is way smarter and has more bow ties than I do.”

Whether Alton is the Bill Nye of food or not, there’s no denying that the reunion between the two is exciting. We’re ready for a lesson in nitrogen, crazy chemical reactions, and whatever other educational recipes these two have up their lab-coat sleeves.
