CBS To Air Star Trek: Discovery

Star Trek: Discovery’s first season is set to air on actual US TV this autumn, as CBS scrambles to fill its fall schedule during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Due to a huge number of production delays within the industry over the last few months, the broadcaster has been forced to revisit some of its most popular streaming shows, and have them act as back-ups for gaps that would have typically been occupied by new titles and further instalments of existing ones.

“This is hardly a traditional fall season, but we are prepared with a strong slate of original content while our regular scripted series begin production,” CBS Entertainment chief Kelly Kahl explained in a statement.

Discovery’s third season is set to debut October 15, 2020 on CBS All Access.
