While the cast and crew continue to work on the new series, CBS seems unable or unwilling to set another premiere date for Star Trek: Discovery. Mark DeBevoise, the CBS Interactive President and Chief Operating Officer when asked by Vulture if the show might premiere this fall said, We’re not stating. Should that make you worry about the new series? DeBevoise went on to perhaps try to sooth those nervous feelings and you can check out what he said below.
DeBevoise went on to say:
It’s going great, I’ve actually been up there [to the set]. It is, you know, phenomenal. It is huge. And we’re very excited about the content, the creators, the actors, all coming together. As you said, we’re not tied to any specific release date. It’ll be there when we’re ready to do it, and when we feel it’s in a great place. We’re not worried about anything here. We’re excited, and we’ll have more specifics as we get closer to what will likely be the release dates.
Well, that’s just great. Hopefully, they won’t just pop it on without any notice. CBS has moved the premiere date so many times that some of the cast must have whiplash. From the sound of it, we might not get a look at the new series until 2018. At least the cast dinner picture above does prove that there is a series being shot and Star Trek: Discovery isn’t just some CBS Ponzy scheme.
