Star Trek: Discovery will premiere on September 24th

Posted June 20, 2017

The bad news is that the first season will be split into two parts, with the first eight episodes rolling out every week through November 5.

CBS also confirmed that the 15-episode season will be broken up by a traditional mid-season hiatus.

Star Trek: Discovery hasn't had a smooth start, which is something of a tradition with Star Trek series.

Following the TV broadcast, CBS will make that episode - and the second episode - available for streaming on the CBS All Access streaming service.

Star Trek, one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, returns to television 50 years after it first premiered with STAR TREK: DISCOVERY.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, CBS TV series Star Trek: Discovery will be premiering on September 24, 2017 at 8:30pm PT.

"Star Trek: Discovery" features all-new characters, Starfleet ships and adventures, taking place prior to the original "Star Trek" television series.

Star Trek: Discovery premieres on CBS this September before it moves exclusively to CBS All Access. The fifteen-episode first season will be released in two chapters.

Star Trek: Discovery is ready for takeoff. Sonequa Martin-Green, Jason Isaacs, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh, Rainn Wilson and more will also star. James Frain will play Sarek, the father of Spock.

Of course, none of that matters if you plan to watch the series on its intended platform - CBS All Access.

After the departure of showrunner Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, American Gods), the show was delayed multiple times in the following months. Seems BLM made the trailer...' was just one of the comments made by fans who were unhappy with the apparent inclusivity of the new series, and that mindset appeared at odds with the creator of Star Trek's original vision.

Fuller remains an exec producer on the project, along with Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth.
