Netflix will air 'Star Trek: Discovery' in multiple countries from September 2017

The next generation (but actually it's a prequel series) of starfleet exploration FINALLY has a release date from CBS and their streaming service All Access for Star Trek: Discovery. That same night, the two first episodes will be available to stream on CBS All Access, with subsequent episodes premiering exclusively on the streamer every Sunday.

"Star Trek" is still living long and prospering with its newest fleet landing on CBS' streaming service in September. Viewers are advised to set their DVRs to record a few hours after Discovery's first episode is set to finish at 9:30pm to ensure that you record the entire episode. The cast looks pretty darn good, and although the new Klingons are nothing to write home about, this new vision of the future is both promising and disappointing at the same time. Maybe some of them decide to watch the first episode, become hooked, and then cancel the subscription down the road.

The premiere date will come nearly two full years after "Discovery" was ordered to series in November 2015. The series was then pushed back to May of this year, before CBS delayed it again to the fall in the aftermath of Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, American Gods) officially stepping down as Discovery's showrunner. Kurtzman, Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth are executive producers. It's set about 10 years before the events of the original series and stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Michelle Yeoh, Jason Isaacs and James Frain, among others.

United Kingdom viewers (and others outside the States) will be able to watch the show via Netflix within 24 after each episode lands in the US.
