After a lot of teasing and delays, CBS’s television revival of Star Trek finally has a release date.
Star Trek: Discovery will debut Sunday, Sept. 24, at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT on CBS and its digital-streaming platform CBS All Access.
Only the premiere episode will be available for live viewing on CBS. To watch the rest of the series, a subscription to CBS All Access is required. However, subscribers will be able to watch the second episode on the platform immediately after the pilot airs. New episodes will arrive on Sunday nights, with the season split into two parts. The first eight episodes of the 15-episode season will air from September through November, followed by a midseason break. New episodes will follow in January.
Set a decade before the events of the original series, the sci-fi drama follows the crew of the USS Discovery as they discover new worlds and civilizations, while exploring contemporary themes.
Star Trek: Discovery stars Sonequa Martin-Green as First Officer Michael Burnham, Jason Isaacs as Captain Lorca, Michelle Yeoh as Captain Georgiou, Doug Jones as Science Officer Lt. Saru and Anthony Rapp as astromycologist Lt. Stamets, with Rainn Wilson appearing as Harry Mudd
