UPDATE: A post on StarTrek.com gives a little more info on the new series. The series will be broadcast first-run on CBS' new streaming service, CBS All Access, then distributed to TV and other streaming services. The series is likely to feature all new characters and is not connected to Star Trek Beyond. The first episode will air in January 2017.
Just in time for the 50th anniversary of the show, Hollywood Reporter reports that a new Star Trek TV series is underway. It will be the first small screen Star Trek since Enterprise was cancelled in 2005.
There are no details as to era, plot, or characters, but producer Alex Kurtzman is reportedly "developing a new take" on the franchise, which may mean that is out. While previous sequel series have been syndicated or aired on the former UPN, this series is being developed either as a cable series or for a streaming service, the perfect home for cult television these days.
Kurtzman has a little experience working with Star Trek, specifically on the new, rebooted film franchise (including the upcoming Star Trek Beyond, but here's hoping the series stays outside the rebooted universe.
