It looks like Star Trek isn’t the only sci-fi icon finding new life on CBS All Access. Network heads confirm that a Twilight Zone reboot is in development for the streaming branch, as produced by Get Out director and Key & Peele favorite Jordan Peele.
At long last, CBS’ Star Trek: Discovery finally commit to a September premiere after delays from January, to May and beyond. The departure of showrunner Bryan Fuller was an understandable setback, but Fuller’s replacements now explain the delays, owing to “artistry and custom craftsmanship,” along with a brand-new bridge.
Star Trek fans’ crushing uncertainty has at last come to an end, as CBS finally reveals a first look at Star Trek: Discovery. Ahead of the network's Upfront presentation, CBS reveals two members of the Discovery crew, and a very strange location.
The various renewals and cancellations from major networks haven’t strayed too far outside expectation, but it’s always odd of established series to face an abrupt end. So it is, that we eulogize CBS’ 2 Broke Girls, which endured an impressive six seasons, but won’t return for a seventh.
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 was two years ago that CBS surprisingly opted against the Greta Gerwig-led How I Met Your Mother spinoff How I Met Your Dad, but you know what they say about bad pennies. 20th TV has formally begun development of yet another quasi-spinoff from the franchise, this time going back to the How I Met Your Father title.
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.
