Is Elon Musk Shooting Nathan Fielder Into Space for ‘Nathan for You’ Next Season?

fielder_space2It’s been nearly three months since Nathan for You aired its fantastic season 3 finale and earned a season 4 renewal, and now all we can do is wait until we get to see what kind of crazy stunts Fielder pulls during his next batch of episodes. Over the past couple months, however, Fielder has dropped a few hints about at least one of the stunts we can expect later this year, and it would take Fielder to much greater heights than his big tightrope walk in December.

It all started with this Instagram post on January 1st (captioned “Super stoked for 2016!”) featuring Fielder with a copy of the book How to Disappear Completely and Never Be Found:

Then, this interaction with SpaceX founder Elon Musk last month:

And finally, today Fielder posted this photo on Instagram with the very ominous caption “bye”:

I don’t want to jump to any conclusions here — and unsurprisingly, Comedy Central has not confirmed or denied this yet — but it looks like there’s a very good chance Fielder will get shot into space by Elon Musk next season. I just hope he doesn’t stay there forever.
