There is nothing more frustrating than getting into a really good series, only for there to be a break halfway through and you have to wait weeks before you can indulge in part 2. Just to rub salt into the wound, Netflix has done just that with Star Trek Discovery, and now have released a set of new posters ahead of the show’s return next year.

William Shatner on a potential guest appearance in Star Trek: Discovery

Now that Star Trek has returned to the small screen – and The Original Series-era timeline (well, close enough) – with CBS’ acclaimed new series Star Trek: Discovery, IGN has been speaking to the legendary William Shatner about what it would take to see him making a guest appearance in the new show.

“A great deal of money,” joked Shatner. “I don’t know what you’d do with a character who appeared 50, now 51 years ago. You know, I am 51 years older, with all the exigencies of age.”

Given that Discovery takes place ten years prior to The Original Series, a Kirk appearance would seem highly unlikely (barring some time travel scenario), but CBS is reportedly planning to expand its output to other Star Trek projects, and Shatner believes there is an interesting story to tell of Kirk’s golden years, drawing comparisons with his Better Late Than Never co-star and football legend Terry Bradshaw.

CBS shuffles its Star Trek: Discovery schedule

Riding high off the early success of the new series, CBS has announced a slight shuffle to its Star Trek: Discovery schedule.

Originally, the plan was for eight episodes to air through to November, leading into a midseason break through to January, at which point the final seven episodes would get underway. However, we’ll now be getting nine episodes in the first half of the season, with the final six being held back until after the break.

Star Trek: Discovery is proving to be a big hit for CBS, with the network announcing that it has surpassed expectations with regards to CBS All Access subscribers, with the streaming service’s numbers up 200% since Discovery’s premiere last month.

The showrunners revealed that Amanda is set to be portrayed by Canadian actress Mia Kirshner, whose credits include 24, The L Word, The Vampire Diaries and Defiance.

Don’t expect season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery until 2019

Given the number of delays the production faced during its first season, it probably won’t come as too much of a surprise to hear that a second season of Star Trek: Discovery isn’t expected to arrive until some time in 2019.

“Ideally, on the early side of 2019,” producer Alex Kurtzman told THR when asked when we might see season two hitting the airwaves. “There have been preliminary conversations about when and how [a second season could air] and we’ve been very consistent in our message, which is that rather than announce a date and have to push again, let’s take into consideration everything we’ve learned from this season. Now we know what we can do and where the sand traps are, so let’s give ourselves ample time to announce a date that makes sense to everybody – both the needs of production and CBS.

Star Trek: Discovery debuts to strong ratings, and heavy piracy

The Star Trek franchise returned to the small screen for the first time in twelve years this past Sunday as CBS launched Star Trek: Discovery by airing the first two episodes of the new series, and it certainly seems like this latest foray into Gene Roddenberry’s world been a big hit with audiences.

As well as earning acclaimed from fans and critics alike [read our reviews here and here], CBS has announced that Sunday’s premiere drew 9.6 million viewers, with that figure expected to rise to more than 15 million once you take into account seven-day delayed viewing.

Star Trek made its triumphant return to the small screen this past weekend with the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery [read our reviews of the first episode and second episode], and to celebrate, Screen Junkies has unveiled its Honest Trailer for Star Trek: The Next Generation!

Now, get ready for the original series’ geeky younger brother featuring new aliens, more complex stories, and acting that’s way better than Star Trek deserves in this kinder, gentler sequel where crew members discuss their feelings, celebrate each others cultures, and fight with their words — not their fists.

Warp into the 21st century with an all new USS Enterprise — an awkward hybrid of a cutting edge spaceship and a Marriott convention center — and journey to a Sci-Fi utopia where poverty, racism, and war are a thing of the past. And forget about the original Star Trek

Fall TV Preview: The 25 Most Anticipated New Shows of 2017
The idea of a “fall TV season” feels particularly antiquated in 2017, as two of the year’s buzziest series (“Game of Thrones” and “Twin Peaks”) have already wrapped for the year. Fall may even be a bit of an afterthought now compared to spring, as networks aim to catch Emmy voters with prestige TV premieres when campaign season gets underway.

And yet, there’s nearly 70 years of tradition with the fall TV season. It’s when Nielsen still resets the calendar for the new TV year; when blue chip advertisers like the automotive sector roll out their own new wares; football season returns (don’t discount that huge impact on TV schedules); and the weather gets chilly, which conceivably means more viewers watching TV indoors.

This year, they’ll find a lot of familiar titles on broadcast TV, including the return of NBC’s “Will & Grace”; a prequel to “The Big Bang Theory,
