Syfy knows that everyone loves a good disaster flick, so they are bringing us a fun six-night event titled Recipe for Disaster. Each night’s programming will end with an episode of the new Peacock series The End is Nye, wherein Bill Nye will take a dive into mind-blowing global disasters.

Bill Nye (known as “The Science Guy”) will break down both natural and unnatural disasters, using science to tell us how we can prevent and survive them. All six episodes of The End is Nye will be available to watch on Peacock beginning August 25.

Recipe for Disaster launches on Syfy Thursday, August 25 at 11:40 a.m. ET, and wraps up on Tuesday, August 30. Of course, the legendary Syfy Sharknado series of films will be represented (Sharknado marathon, anyone?), but there is much more to watch. Here is the daily schedule:
