CBS has done horrible job with the Star Trek franchise the whole year. You would think they would think that the 50th Anniversary would make them care a little more. However that is not the case. They let the Enterprise show die and has not had anything on TV since. We were excited to hear about Star Trek: Discovery then disappointed when it was revealed that it would be a streaming only show on CBS All Access. However that is not even the case. CBS confirmed a delay with the show. Which is not that much of a surprise since it was scheduled to debut in January and we still don’t know nothing about the cast. Instead of Star Trek: Discovery folks will get the spinoff of The Good Wife in January. Star Trek: Discovery will supposably launch May 2017.
“We aim to dream big and deliver, and that means making sure the demands of physical and post-production for a show that takes place entirely in space, and the need to meet an air date, don’t result in compromised quality. Before heading into production, we evaluated these realities with our partners at CBS and they agreed: Star Trek deserves the very best, and these extra few months will help us achieve a vision we can all be proud of.” ~Executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller
