Star Trek: Discovery has a new premiere date – this time in May. StarTrek.com announced the news today, that the series will now debut in May 2017 instead of the original January 2017 date.
The reason for the push is what every fan should want – better quality. While you might have to wait a few more months, letting them have more time will hopefully produce a better show.
“Bringing Star Trek back to television carries a responsibility and mission: to connect fans and newcomers alike to the series that has fed our imaginations since childhood,” executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller said in a joint statement. “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.”
