Trekkies rejoice! Star Trek is headed to the final frontier, which in this case will be the subscription-based streaming service CBS All Access.
The Hollywood Reporter posted Monday that CBS is developing a Star Trek reboot series slated to premiere in January 2017, just a few months after the show’s 50th anniversary. Although the first episode is expected to air on CBS, the rest of the season will be available exclusively on the network’s streaming service All Access.
Currently, all previous live action iterations of the franchise — Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Enterprise — are available on All Access. Enterprise ended its in 2005, which means it has been more than a decade since the Starfleet Command has had any new TV adventures.
Alex Kurtzman has been named the producer of the yet-to-be-titled project. He has been involved with the recent film reboots, but there has been no indication if or how the films and the TV series will connect.
