The new Star Trek series has the potential of being on the air for more than one year. Fans could see several more seasons of Star Trek on CBS All Access. The series will feature all-new characters that will explore the galaxy.
No details about the plot have been released yet, but Les Moonves was very positive when he spoke during a conference call on Tuesday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He is excited about the future and Star Trek is a big part of the future for CBS.
“All the series have done well in terms of streaming. Added in to that, Star Trek is a huge international franchise. Our international distribution guy is going crazy; he can’t wait to get out to the marketplace and sell that. Right away, we’re more than halfway home on the cost of the show from international alone. The risk is small in seeing the track record. We think it’ll be great and bring in a lot more subscribers. We’re really excited about it. [Star Trek 2017 is a] world-class effort that will make all Star Trek fans proud.”
