Star Trek Discovery Pushed Back Again but at Least We Have a

first_img ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ S2 Finale Recap: When No One Has Gone Before’Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2, Ep 13 Recap: Tearful Preparations Stay on target 31Remember when Star Trek: Discovery was supposed to premiere this month? Those were the good ol’ days.While the show was on track for a May 2017 premiere, new reports are saying otherwise. Sources told Entertainment Weekly that the date has been pushed back again, although under less dire circumstances than last time.While the May date was chosen because of creative and production issues, which resulted in Bryan Fuller stepping down as showrunner, this most recent change is technical. A source told The Wrap that producers are simply taking their time in hiring and in getting together the visual effects. They stress that Star Trek: Discovery is still on track.“This is an ambitious project; 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,” CBS Television Studios said in a statement.Star Sonequa Martin-Green is still currently on The Walking Dead, and there were also reports her involvement could’ve created some “marketplace confusion,” as EW writes.On the bright side, another piece of good news has surfaced. Sarek, Spock’s father, and Vulcan ambassador, is going to be a key character in the series and has been cast. James Frain, known for Gotham and Orphan Black will be taking on the role, according to sources.The character will be the first to cross over from a previous Star Trek franchise into Discovery.We’re disappointed that the show has been pushed back again, but more than anything, we want the creators to take their time. If that means delaying its release than so be it.The show is set to start filming in Toronto next week, so hopefully, the change won’t be too drastic.So far, there’s no confirmed release date, but be on the lookout for the premiere, which will air on CBS and then weekly over at the CBS All Access app.This trailer will have to tide us over!!!last_img read more
