It’s been 50 years since the Star Trek series was started and there seems to be no end in sight for the popular sci-fi franchise with the much anticipated Star Trek: Discovery starting in 2017 on Netflix.
The series was supposed to start in January 2017, but the show was delayed due to the exit of the series creator, Bryan Fuller. This however has not dampened fans excitement for the return of the beloved sci-fi franchise.
Unfortunately there is no confirmation on when the Star Trek saga will continue, as CBS appears uncertain that the series will premiere in fall 2017. CBS Interactive President, Marc DeBevoise has stated that the network was not tied to a specific release date, making us wonder if the series will even air in 2017.
Not much is known about the plot of Star Trek: Discovery, but what we do know is that the show will be set around 10 years before the original series. The trailer promised new crews, new villains, new heroes and new worlds. Something will be unfolding in the ‘Prime’ of the known Star Trek universe, which will not be tied to the movies, bridging the gap between Enterprise and the original series from 1966.
Even though there is no confirmed release date for the series, we hope to start binge watching the rest of the Star Trek saga by no later than early 2018, but this will have to be seen.
