Story by Jack Foley

NETFLIX has announced that the highly anticipated Star Trek: Discovery will launch on Monday, September 25, 2017, exclusively on Netflix everywhere excluding the US and Canada.

All new episodes will be available on Netflix weekly on Mondays. The 15-episode season will be released in two chapters.

The first eight episodes will run from Monday, September 25 through Monday, November 6. The season will then resume with the second chapter in January 2018.

Star Trek, one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, returns 50 years after it first premiered with Star Trek: Discovery, which will follow the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life-forms, as well as one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself.

The series will feature a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

Star Trek: Discovery is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Alex Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout, Bryan Fuller’s Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment.

Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers.
