CBS announced today via press release that there is a new Star Trek series in the works that will air in January 2017. The new show will not be related to the current Trek movies and will feature a new cast to boldly seek new life and new civilizations. CBS says that the new show will explore contemporary issues akin to the original Star Trek that first aired in 1966. Trek’s most recent official incarnations have been two films directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013). There is also a fan-made film called Star Trek: Renegades (2015) that can be viewed on YouTube. In 2001 Trek came back as a show called Star Trek: Enterprise, set 100 years before the original show, that aired on UNP (Universal Paramount Network). Enterprise had four seasons.
EDIT: The show will only be available online on CBS All Access
