New Star Trek TV Series In Development

It looks like Star Trek could be voyaging back onto TV screens in early 2017, just after the franchise celebrates its 5oth anniversary in September next year, according to The Hollywood Reporter.


Producer Alex Kurtzman, who co-wrote JJ Abrams’s Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness with Roberto Orci – is developing a Star Trek series for CBS, with the premiere slated for the network in January 2017. The premier and all following episodes will then air on CBS’s digital and VOD platform, CBS All Access. The new Trek series will marks the first original series developed specifically for CBS All Access.

The series will introduce all new characters to the franchise so don’t expect to see Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto week in, week out (though you never know – guest appearances from the film crew would be an obvious way to help promote the series on its launch).

Kurtzman will executive produce through his newly launched Secret Hideout banner. A search is under way for a writer to take on the cult hit. The franchise will celebrate its 50th anniversary on 8 September 2016.

The Hollywood Reporter story implies this will be another spaceship-based show, but maybe we’ll finally get the oft-mooted Starfleet Academy-based show? Or Deep Space 51 (which has never been mooted but hey, let’s get it out there…)
