Sci Fi TV Listings for the Week of September 18th: Star Trek Discovery Has Its Launch!

By | September 18, 2017

It has been a long wait since the Star Trek: Discovery series was first announced and its debut has been delayed multiple times from its originally planned January 2017 bow. But that show is finally ready for its launch and will get its unveiling on CBS this coming Sunday. Its premiere episode will be broadcast on CBS, but after that the show will only be available on the network’s CBS All Access streaming service. The premiere and second episode will be available for streaming immediately after the broadcast, and new episodes will be released weekly after that with eight total planned for fall. The second half of the first season will then start streaming in January 2018.  In other fall premieres for the week, NBC’s The Good Place returns for its second season on Wednesday (it moves to it regular Thursday timeslot next week), Syfy’s Channel Zero has its Season 2 premiere on Wednesday, FOX’s Gotham has its Season 4 premiere on Thursday, and The Orville moves to its regular timeslot leading out from that show on the same night.

As for the Summer wrap up, four shows have their finales this week.  NBC’s Midnight, Texas has its first season finale on Monday.  ABC’s Somewhere Between wraps up its “limited run” on Tuesday.  CBS’ Zoo wraps up its third season on Thursday.  And MTV’s Teen Wolf delivers its series finale on Sunday.  Those shows are making room for all the new Fall entries which will continue hitting in rapid-fire succession in the coming weeks.

    I’ve been a Trekkie since the sixties but, sadly, I won’t be watching Discovery. Though I have waited a long time for a new Star Trek series, my TV bill is already ridiculous and I can’t pay for yet another streaming service. No point in watching the premier if I can’t watch the series!
