Ok Trekkies, rejoice! CBS finally announced a release date for Star Trek: Discovery. The newest incarnation of Gene Roddenberry’s vision for the future will see its US launch Sunday, September 24th at 8:30pm ET on CBS’ main broadcast channel. But be sure to keep an eye on things, since the airtime could change depending on the network’s NFL game and 60 Minutes broadcast.
The second episode drops the same night on CBS All Access, giving you a two-fer and pushing fans to the digital subscription service. After premiere night, episodes will appear every Sunday night until November 5th. After that a midseason break the second batch of seven episodes will start popping up in January.
Canadian fans will have to tune into Space Channel, then Space.ca. The rest of the planet gets to see the series on Netflix, starting on Monday, September 25th.
It’s all still a summer away and a far cry from the “early 2016” premiere originally advertised, but fans can take solace in the fact the show wasn’t rushed out to meet an arbitrary (and probably hastily announced) delivery date.
Until then, check out the official trailer:
