‘Star Trek’ This Fall?

The long-anticipated arrival of Star Trek: Discovery on CBS All Access could happen by this fall, according to Deadline.

The series was originally slated for a January 2017 premiere, then was rescheduled for a May debut before that launch was also scrubbed.

“It’s important to get it right, and Star Trek is the family jewels,” CBS CEO Leslie Moonves is reported to have told an industry conference yesterday. “We’re not going to rush it in. There’s a lot of post-production. But I’m very confident based on what I’ve seen so far.”

Discovery, which would be the sixth live-action series in the history of the popular franchise, could be a big draw for the fledgling streaming service that currently serves up shows that have already broadcast on the CBS network. The first season is to consist of 13 episodes.


In September, CBS All Access unveiled a $9.99 a month, almost commercial-free version of the service; there’s also a $5.99 monthly plan with ads.

Moonves said earlier this month that CBS has seen a dramatic increase in All Access subscribers.
