A few months ago, it was revealed by CBS All Access that a new TV series of the Star Trek franchise was under production, Star Trek: Discovery.
Star Trek: Discovery is set ten years prior to The Enterprise, and will follow the crew of the USS Discovery and their adventures, while exploring an incident and an event in Star Trek history that’s been talked about but never been explored.
When first announced, Star Trek: Discovery was expected to premiere January 2017, but due to the exit of showrunner Bryan Fuller and the technical demands of the project, CBS delay its premiere until May, and later to Summer/Fall 2017.
Now, CBS has announced an official premiere date, Sunday, Sept. 24 at 8:30/7:30c on both the network and its streaming service CBS All Access, with the second episode available the same night as the premiere on their streaming service.
The next episodes will drop every Sunday, only on CBS All Access.
Discovery will have a 15-episode first season, with the first eight episodes airing during the Fall, until Nov. 5, and the last seven episodes will be airing next year, beginning in January 2018.
We leave you here the new teaser poster with the premiere date:
