Weird But True is heading to Disney+ this August for a new season.
The National Geographic’s Emmy Award-winning show combines arts and crafts, unbelievable facts and real-life exploration. Set both in studio and in the field, it’s presented by entertainers and educators Charlie Engelman and Carly Ciarrocchi.
Whether hunting for dinosaur fossils, hiking volcanoes or flying planes, the science-loving duo inspires kids to get excited about the world around them. This new season sees them embarking on even more imaginative and strange adventures to reveal surprising and interesting facts about the world.
That includes a closer look at dinosaurs, national parks, trains, venomous animals, the solar system and more. The weekly series also features guest appearances from Nat Geo Photographers and Explorers, including Anand Varma, who teaches Charlie and Carly the correct way to take the perfect photo, and professor and founder of SciStarter Darlene Cavalier, who describes how she is exploring new ways to connect people with science. Renowned astrophysicist Michio Kaku shows up this season as a special guest star, playing fictional character Buster Infinity of the Global Space Administration Interplanetary Expedition.
Produced for Disney+ by National Geographic and Steve Rotfeld Productions, the new season premieres on 14th August.
