A new Star Trek is headed to CBS in early 2017, and the new man in charge of CBS gave Trekkies an update on the new series. The new Star Trek will air exclusively on CBS All Access after its initial launch on CBS.
Glen Geller did not know much about the project, but that is only because it is not a CBS series. CBS All Access has taken complete control of the new Star Trek.
According to Trek Today, Geller said the following about the new series:
“I’m just thrilled we get to be part of the launch. We’ll broadcast the launch. I’m not sure about the plans creatively for new characters. I don’t have anything to do with it. It really is for All Access. While the network will be broadcasting the pilot, I actually can’t answer any creative questions about it. I’m looking forward to seeing the new Star Trek. I think it’s going to be an exciting project.”
Are you excited for the return of Star Trek next year? Do you plan to watch? Tell us what you think.
I will not subscribe to CBS Access. I will watch the new Star Trek by stealing it via torrent sites. I will give CBS their money back by buying it on Blu-Ray if it gets released in that format.
I am a huge Star Trek fan and will gladly pay for CBS All Access to see the new series. I’ll drop Netflix to stay within a budget because I would rather watch Star Trek than anything else!
I am a huge Star Trek fan, however I feel I may be missing out on this new series. I cannot justify paying for all access when I’m already paying for cable. I fear this move by CBS will put the nail in the coffin for this and future Star Trek series.
Well, I’ll be watching the new Star Trek. There’s a catch though; I’ll be watching it for free via torrents. 🙂
Guess I won’t be watching the new Star Trek. I’m not going to subscribe to CBS All Access for Star Trek only when the other shows are broadcast. And I am a Star Trek fan.
I think this approach is terrible for a major network. CBS All Access is (I believe) mostly intended for folks who don’t want to get cable, but still want to get network programs (and don’t have good over-the-air reception). Why would I want to get CBS All Access if I already get CBS on my cable? It’s not equivalent to, say, Netflix. I would very, very much like to see any new Star Trek show that comes out, but to have to subscribe to CBS All Access just for that seems unfair.
When is the new star trek going to air so I could watch the show.
