CBS’s Star Trek: Discovery has finally been given an official release date. The long-delayed series will hit screens Monday, Sept. 25 on Netflix everywhere excluding the U.S. and Canada, where it will be available on CBS all Access on September 24.
According to Netflix, the season will run for fifteen episodes in total but will be split into two parts with a pretty significant hiatus. The first eight episodes will run from Sept. 25 through to Nov. 6. The rest of the season will resume for its second chapter January next year, with an exact date yet to be announced.
Star Tek: Discovery was initially slated for a January 2017 premiere, but its release was pushed back to May and moved once more to September. CBS initially announced that the show would feature thirteen episodes, but later increased the season adding two more.
Star Trek: Discovery is created by Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman. The series will act as a prequel to the original Star Trek, set roughly ten years before the events in the original series. The show will explore a never before seen era that shaped Federation history. Star Trek: Discovery stars Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham, along with James Frain, Terry Serpico, Maulik Pancholy, Sam Vartholomeos, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh, Chris Obi, Shazad Latif and Mary Chieffo.
