Science's Through The Wormhole With Morgan Freeman Renewed For Season 4

Morgan Freeman reading the phonebook would probably grab my attention if my ears caught his soothing but articulate voice working his way through the A's. And yet, I have yet to watch Science's Through the Wormhole, a series that is likely to be much more educational than a phonebook reading, and from what Science has announced, will be returning for a fourth season.

Currently working its way through its third season, Through the Wormhole has actor Morgan Freeman (Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Knight Rises) narrating as each episode focuses on a different science-related question. Among the questions posed in the current season, "Is There a Superior Race?" and "Is the Universe Alive?" The episode set to air next week (Wednesday, August 8 at 10:00 p.m.) asks, "Did We Invent God?"

Science announced today that the series will be back for a fourth season, which will debut next summer (2013). The show will continue to be produced by Revelations Entertainment with executive producers Morgan Freeman, Lori McCreary and James Younger. What's more, it sounds like Science is also developing a new original project with Revelations Entertainment, though Science didn't get into specifics on that. But Freeman did speak about the series, calling it his "own personal playground."

“This project has become my own personal playground to explore mysteries ranging from the edges of the universe to the innervese of the mind,” said Freeman. “THROUGH THE WORMHOLE encourages us to take a closer look at questions that have boggled humanity since our creation. We’ve asked some huge questions in the past, but you haven’t seen anything yet – we’re just getting started.”

I'm making it my goal to dedicate more time to (watching) science explored between now and Season 4. TiVo has already received its orders. In the meantime, here's a clip from the series, which seems fittingly timed, with its analogy involving the Olympic sport Curling (technically winter Olympics, but still, Olympic-themed!)
