Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson speaks onstage during the Onward18 Conference in New York City on October 23, 2018.

The statement says Tyson's other show, "Cosmos", will return on National Geographic TV and Fox at a date to be determined. With regard to the allegations against Tyson, the channel did not give any details about the investigation. "There will be no further comment". While it was ongoing, Fox and Nat Geo last month put on hold the Season 2 premiere of science docuseries Cosmos, originally slated for March 3. Both networks later halted those plans following the controversy surrounding Tyson.

Tyson denied the accusations in a Facebook post but said he welcomed the investigation.

StarTalk 's fifth season was pulled in November after just three episodes when a number of women accused Tyson of sexual misconduct; a Bucknell professor and Tyson's former assistant were among his accusers.

The investigation started in December 2018 after Katelyn Allers and Ashley Watson came forward with allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior, including groping (described as "creepy" rather than assault) and attempts at persuasion. 21st Century Fox is the parent company of the Fox network and has a majority stake in the National Geographic Channel. Friday's statement did not address the complaints or investigation.
