Fans are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the latest Star Trek television entry–which takes place between the prequel series Enterprise and The Original Series and focuses on the ship’s Lieutenant Commander to be played by Sonequa Martin-Green–but it looks like it will miss its May target date. CBS has made the following comment on when the show will debut:
We will be flexible on a launch date if it’s best for the show. We’ve said from the beginning it’s more important to do this right than to do it fast.
The show was already delayed from its original January launch date and has had some shakeups behind the scenes with Bryan Fuller stepping down as showrunner and executive producer. The current plan is for Discovery to air its premiere episode on CBS and the rest of the episodes will be available on the network’s streaming service CBS All Access. No adjusted premiere date has been given for the show yet.
In related news, James Frain has been cast on the show to play the iconic role of Sarek, Spock’s father. It will likely be a recurring role for Frain who has previously appeared on such genre shows as Gotham, Orphan Black, True Blood, The Cape and more.
