Acclaimed astrophysicist and author Neil deGrasse Tyson will return to the small screen following an investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against him.

Neil deGrasse Tyson is set to return as host of his two shows - "Cosmos" and "StarTalk" - on Fox and National Geographic following the completion of an internal investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations made against him past year. "Both Fox and National Geographic are committed to finding an air date for Cosmos", the network said in a statement.

The investigation is complete, and we are moving forward with both StarTalk and Cosmos.

The second season of Cosmos, sub-titled Possible Worlds (itself a follow-up to 2014's Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey) was supposed to debut on Fox Sunday, March 3 before hitting NatGeo a day later.

It was website Patheos that published a report in which two women accused Tyson of inappropriate behavior, including Dr. Katelyn N. Allers of Bucknell University and Ashley Watson, Tyson's former assistant.

Tyson said in December that he denied the allegations and welcomed the investigation. 21st Century Fox is the parent company of the Fox network and has a majority stake in the National Geographic Channel. "We take these matters very seriously and we are reviewing the recent reports". Friday's statement did not address the complaints or investigation.
