BURBANK, Calif. (Jan. 17, 2020) — Disney+ announced today that its breakout hit series “The World According to Jeff Goldblum” will return for a second season on the streaming service. Produced by Nutopia, “The World According to Jeff Goldblum” is the service’s first original series from National Geographic and will conclude its freshman season on Friday, January 24.
“Jeff has captured the imagination and curiosity of our audience with his distinct perspective and illuminating adventures,” said Ricky Strauss, president, Content & Marketing, Disney+. “We can’t wait to see where Jeff and our partners at National Geographic take us in season two.”
After premiering on November 12, subscribers have followed host and executive producer Jeff Goldblum across the country as he unravels the fascinating truths behind familiar objects we all know and love.
