IGN: “Star Trek: The Next Generation” will return for Season 10, says showrunner Jeff Davis
I am excited to say that Season 10 of the critically acclaimed sci-fi series Star Trek: TNG will return this fall, as part of the CBS All Access platform, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The news comes from CBS Studios President David Nevins, who spoke with THR about the upcoming season, which he describes as “an evolution” from the previous two seasons.
The news comes after fans of the show shared early footage from the series, including some of the new castmembers and the upcoming events.
This marks the second time CBS Studios has returned to the franchise with a new series.
In the first season, the company produced two films, “The Motion Picture” and “The Next Generation,” with a third being a prequel to “The Final Frontier,” which was directed by the same cast.
The third installment, “Destiny,” was directed and written by Justin Lin, and stars John Cho, Zachary Quinto, Brent Spiner, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, Anton Yelchin, and John Cho’s son, Harry.
The network will be announcing more details about “Destination” on October 20.
The new season will air on CBS All-Access starting October 26.
“The series will also be available to stream on the CBS Network and CBS All Apps for an additional $4.99 per month.
A limited number of fans will also receive early access to the show via the CBS TV Everywhere app for $6.99/month,” a CBS representative told THR.
“CBS All Access will continue to deliver original series and series with new cast members, including the debut of ‘Star Trek’ and ‘StarTrek: Discovery’ on the All-access streaming platform.”
The next season of “StarTreker” will be followed by “Star Wars Rebels,” a series that will feature “the very first ‘Star Wars’ trilogy” as well as the first appearance of the first two Star Wars villains, Darth Maul and Darth Sidious.
This year’s season will also feature the return of a new alien species, the Hylotl, who have not appeared in a decade.
