CBS’s Star Trek Discovery has been hit with repeated delays. If the original schedule had stayed on track, we would have seen the first episode six months ago, but for unclear reasons, the premiere date was pushed to May and then to the ambiguous “fall.” It’s ambiguous no longer: today CBS came out with a solid release date that we don’t expect them to change this time. The voyage begins Sunday, September 24.
As originally planned, the first episode of Star Trek Discovery will air on the network itself. It’ll air from 8:30 to 9:30 PM, and immediately following, both the first and second episodes will go live on CBS All Access, the streaming service where the remainder of the first season will call its home.
You won’t get all the episodes at once. There will be a new episode each Sunday until November 5, at which point Discovery will take some time off until January 2018. Reportedly the break is to allow for post-production to be completed on the remaining episodes.
Star Trek Discovery stars Jason Isaacs, Sonequa Martin-Green, James Frain, Terry Serpico, Maulik Pancholy, Sam Vartholomeos, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh, Chris Obi, Shazad Latif and Mary Chieffo. Executive producers include Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth.
