The New ‘Star Trek’ TV Show, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Will Be on TNT by June 28, 2018
TNT is reportedly in the middle of a major television deal with the CBS Television Network that will bring Star Trek back to its iconic television roots.
According to Deadline, the deal will bring a new, original Star Trek series to TNT from the producers of the original Star Wars trilogy, The Original Series, The Next Series, and Star Trek Beyond.
According the report, the new series will be the first in a new line of shows that will premiere on TNT in the summer of 2018.
This series will include a full slate of Star Trek-related content, including guest stars from the original series, as well as a new Star Trek movie.
In addition to bringing a new series to the streaming service, TNT also is reportedly preparing to introduce a new network-exclusive program called The Star Trek Nerds, which will be a Star Trek parody-centric TV show on the network.
TNT is also rumored to be considering bringing a spinoff of the show that will be created by veteran writer/producer Justin Lin and showrunner/executive producer Chris McKenna.
