E4 sets premiere date for Star Trek Discovery
The series will arrive on 15th December.
E4 has confirmed that Star Trek Discovery will premiere on Sunday 15th December.
The network struck a deal with CBS Studios International, whose streaming service CBS All-Access exclusively airs the show in the US.
Discovery has been on Netflix since September 2017, with the first two series now available to stream in their entirety, but this will be the first time it’s been shown on broadcast TV here.
Created by Bryan Fuller and The Mummy’s Alex Kurtzman, who co-wrote the script to 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness, the show is set ten years before the events of the classic 1960s series.
It follows the adventures of those onboard the titular ship which includes science specialist Micheal (Sonequa Martin-Green), First Officer Saru (Doug Jones) and Chief Engineer Paul (Anthony Rapp).
Gretchen J. Berg and Aaron Harberts served as showrunners before season 2 but will be replaced by Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise for the upcoming third season.
Along with Discovery, E4 has also picked up CBS’s family sitcom Man with a Plan starring Friends Matt LeBlanc.
The third season of Star Trek Discovery will arrive on Netflix sometime in 2020.
