Star Trek fans will be delighted with this news. CBS has confirmed that a new Star Trek series is going to air in 2017. The network has confirmed that the new series is being developed and that it will air in January 2017 on CBS before the remaining episodes are aired exclusively on CBS All-Access.
It’s been a while since we have had a Star Trek series. Hopefully it will be the best yet. This announcement comes just in time for Star Trek’s 50th anniversary. Star Trek reboots film producer Alex Kurtzman is going to be attached to the project which may please some fans and alienate others. Not everyone likes the new movies.
Once the new series has premiered on CBS in January 2017 all episodes will be aired through CBS All-Access. This is going to be the first original series that has been developed exclusively for the video-on-demand and subscription live streaming service that is CBS All-Access. So they have a lot riding on this.
CBS All-Access is a cross-platform online streaming service that provides access to a large variety of CBS content for $5.99 a month. All Star Trek series are already available through the service while CBS Studios International is going to distribute it for TV and other platforms across the globe. Hopefully it lives up to the Star Trek name.
