New "Star Trek" TV Series In 2017

CBS Television Studios will launch a new "Star Trek" television series January 2017, with a special sneak peek airing on the CBS Television Network in 2016, as part of the "Star Trek" 50th Anniversary:

The premiere episode plus all subsequent first-run episodes will then become available in the US on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand/live streaming service. "Star Trek" will also be distributed concurrently for television/multiple platforms around the world by CBS Studios International.

"...the brand-new 'Star Trek' will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966..."

"This new series will premiere to the national CBS audience, then boldly go where no first-run 'Star Trek' series has gone before – directly to its millions of fans through CBS All Access," said 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."
