National Geographic’s anthology series Genius will become a Disney+ original, starting with Season 4, which has been greenlighted. The announcement was made during Disney’s Investor Day by Nat Geo President Courtney Monroe. She unveiled that Season 4 will focus on civil rights movement icon Martin Luther King, Jr.

Genius‘ first installment was about Albert Einstein, the second about Pablo Picasso. The upcoming third season, which will launch on Nat Geo next year, chronicles the life and career of Aretha Franklin.

The anthology series comes from Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine TV and 20th Television.

This is the latest Nat Geo program to make the move to Disney+. Earlier this year, the cable network’s drama The Right Stuff migrated to the streamer. And today, Monroe announced that documentary Cousteau, originally commissioned by Nat Geo, will now premiere on Disney+.
