Star Trek Discovery will launch in May 2017, hitting CBS first in the USA, then appearing on Netflix world-wide – including the UK – just a day later.

“Bringing ‘Star Trek’ back to television carries a responsibility and mission: to connect fans and newcomers alike to the series that has fed our imaginations since childhood,” executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller told SFcrowsnest. “We aim to dream big and deliver, and that means making sure the demands of physical and post-production for a show that takes place entirely in space, and the need to meet an air date, don’t result in compromised quality. Before heading into production, we evaluated these realities with our partners at CBS and they agreed: ‘Star Trek’ deserves the very best, and these extra few months will help us achieve a vision we can all be proud of.”

“The series template and episodic scripts that Alex and Bryan have delivered are incredibly vivid and compelling,” added David Stapf, President, CBS Television Studios. “They are building a new, very ambitious ‘Star Trek’ world for television, and everyone involved supports their vision for the best timing to bring to life what we all love on the page.”

Following its May 2017 premiere on the CBS Television Network, all episodes of the new Star Trek TV series will be available in the U.S. exclusively on CBS All Access. Then, each episode of the new Trek series will be available in the UK and globally within 24 hours of its U.S. premiere, via Netflix in 188 countries and through Bell Media platforms in Canada.

Star Trek Discovery is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout, Fuller’s Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg, Aaron Harberts, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth are serving as executive producers.
