It has been announced that Genius will be moving to Disney+ for its upcoming fourth season. The anthology drama started out on National Geographic Channel for its first three seasons, focusing on the lives of historical figures such as Einstein, Picasso, and most recently, Aretha Franklin.

Season 4, dubbed Genius: MLK/X will explore the formative years of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, focusing on their pioneering accomplishments, dueling philosophies, and personal relationships. King used non-violent protest to advance racial equality, while Malcolm X stood for Black empowerment. In their own ways, each became synonymous with the civil rights era and the fight for racial justice.

Look for Genius: MLK/X later this year on Disney+.
