New Star Trek TV Series Coming In 2017

The news that every Star Trek fan has been waiting for has finally been announced, a new Star Trek television series is coming in January 2017.

The project will see Alex Kurtzman, producer of the movie reboots, serve as executive producer on a CBS Television Studios series.

Due to air shortly after the 50th anniversary of the original show in 2016, the show will introduce new characters to the world of Star Trek, but will not be related to the upcoming big screen outing Star Trek Beyond.

“There is no better time to give Star Trek fans a new series than on the heels of the original show’s 50th anniversary celebration,” said David Stapf, President of CBS Television Studios.

“Everyone here has great respect for this storied franchise, and we’re excited to launch its next television chapter in the creative mind and skilled hands of Alex Kurtzman, someone who knows this world and its audience intimately.”

The show will be the first original series developed specifically for CBS All Access, a subscription-based service which already offers every episode of all previous Star Trek television series for US audiences.

“This new series will boldly go where no first-run Star Trek series has gone before – directly to its millions of fans through CBS All Access,” added Marc DeBevoise, Executive Vice President/General Manager – CBS Digital Media.

“We’ve experienced terrific growth for CBS All Access, expanding the service across affiliates and devices in a very short time. We now have an incredible opportunity to accelerate this growth with the iconic Star Trek, and its devoted and passionate fan base, as our first original series.”

Exciting times ahead for the Star Trek franchise and expanded universe.

If January 2017 is just too long to wait then the great news is that Star Trek Beyond is due to be released in cinemas on July 22, 2016. Only 8 months to boldly go….
