As “Star Trek,” celebrated its 50 year anniversary, it will launch the “Star Trek Beyond” movie on July 2016. More excitingly, the Star Trek franchise will return to television as CBS’s newest series.
The “Star Trek” television series is slated to fire up next year on CBS’ streaming platform All-Access. However, no words are up from the production regarding the name of the Star Trek TV series. As suggested by Screen Rant, the production should start filming the series sooner rather than later now.
Fortunately, it seemed Star Trek’s next televised phase is scheduled to start the production this fall. But, unlike the previous “Star Trek” series, the setting of which is primarily in and around Los Angeles, Trek Core put speculated that this new “Star Trek” TV series will be shot in Toronto. The venue change makes sense, as showrunner Bryan Fuller happened to be producing the Toronto-filmed American Gods television series.
When News Arama had the chance to interview the chief operating officer of Roddenberry Entertainment – Trevor Roth, the publication site confirmed Roth will be one of the executive producers on the upcoming Star Trek series.
The upcoming Star Trek TV series will be written by Nicholas Meyer. Meyer will also produce the TV series along with Rod Roddenberry, Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin. Former cast members like Tony Todd may be on board for the Fuller-led Star Trek series.
Fuller and the production team however did not unleash specific details of the new Star Trek. However, a glimpse of the series’ plot is given. “The brand-new “Star Trek” will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966,” the statement reads.
