Star Trek: Discovery will prove the first outing of the franchise without a Captain as its lead, but the Discovery’s ranking officer will nonetheless be a familiar face. Harry Potter and The OA star Jason Isaacs confirms his role in CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery, finding a nice comfy chair in the process.
It’s taken a long, winding road to get there, but Star Trek: Discovery is finally ready to leave spacedock. See for yourself in the first official production teaser, including glimpses of new aliens, uniforms, ships and more!
Good news for one franchise might be grim for another, as CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery has found its lead on The Walking Dead. Sonequa Martin-Green will beam up as the central character of CBS’ new Trek venture, the first in the franchise to be led by an African-American woman.
Doctor Strange is Marvel Studio's latest entry into its ever growing cinematic universe, and while Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofer fighting against the evil forces of Mads Mikkelsen is all well and good, can it really compare to 1978's made-for-TV Dr. Strange film?
Excited though Star Trek fans are to finally have the franchise back on TV with Bryan Fuller’s Discovery, many had to wonder why the series opted to follow the prequel route yet again. The series will venture early into Trek history with a pre-Kirk setting, something writer Nicholas Meyer says offers more “room to maneuver.”
We still don’t have the clearest picture of what CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery will look like (at least we can watch it without ads!), but it seems we’ll have a whole lot more than the series itself to enjoy, come January. New announcements reveal Discovery will launch tie-in comics and novels, maintaining strict continuity with the series itself.
The absence of Star Trek on TV has created a mystery around CBS’ All-Access Star Trek: Discovery, one we’re likely to wait for official announcements in October. Still, a new report suggests the main character will go by a familiar name, while Bryan Fuller will split the work with new showrunners, and avoid certain Trek mainstays.
However many loved Season 1 of CBS’ Supergirl, few would argue the DC drama suffered a few growing pains, and left room for improvement in Season 2. Moving to The CW (and Vancouver) makes that transition difficult to gauge, but producer Andrew Kreisberg claims Supergirl Season 2 will enjoy the same boon that Arrow did in its revered second run.
The future of Star Trek may not divide humanity by nations of Earth, but back in the 21st century, CBS All-Access subscribers in the U.S. may have reason to envy abroad. The new Star Trek series will be made available on Netflix in international markets, with new episodes streaming shortly after their premiere.
CBS moving Supergirl to The CW creates some interesting logistical questions for the series, now included in The CW’s upcoming Netflix deal, but it seems the DC drama will at least make itself at home on the new network before Season 2. The CW has officially scheduled its own abbreviated Supergirl run, leading straight into the October premiere.
