The web site “Don’t Hate The Geek” is reporting that CBS has locked down a new Star Trek Show.

It is the continuation from the original series that ended in 1969. CBS All Access the President of the studio held a call with reporters Les Moonves. They announced that a new show will be debuting in 2017 with one episode release per week. Many were hoping for the streaming companies like Netflix or Hulu would have pick it up, since Star Trek show are highly viewed and reviewed. In a statement made
“We could have cashed in for a lot of money, selling it to Netflix, Amazon, Hulu … they were all very interested in it. We know that Star Trek is a high-priced, quality product … there are a lot of very rabid Star Trek fans who are going to sign up for it.”
