Bad news, aspiring Starfleet captains: "Star Trek: Discovery," the first new Trek TV series since "Enterprise" went off the air more than a decade ago, has been delayed. We have no new date for when it might finally engage.
"Discovery" is to be set about a decade before the events of the original Kirk & Spock "Star Trek" TV series, and would follow the crew of the USS Discovery. Its 13-episode run was scheduled to being this month, then pushed back until May 2017. At one point the showrunner even stepped down. Now CBS says the show won't begin in May either, because of delays for casting and rewrites.
Says The Verge:
Nevertheless, the series is still forging ahead. CBS Television today announced that Gotham and True Blood star James Frain has joined the cast as Sarek, the father of Spock. He'll work alongside The Walking Dead's Sonequa Martin-Green, who was recently cast as the series lead, as well as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star Michelle Yeoh, who will play a Starfleet captain.
