CBS Interactive president Marc DeBevois spoke about plans for CBS All Access, but fans waiting for Star Trek: Discovery are still in the dark regarding the release date of the new series.
DeBevois said that work on the series is “going great. I’ve actually been up there,” he said. “It is, you know, phenomenal. It is huge. And we’re very excited about the content, the creators, the actors, all coming together.”
Binge watchers will no doubt be disappointed though by CBS All Access‘ decision to not release all episodes of a season at once, the way other streaming services like Netflix does, but to dole them out weekly. “We’re going to stick to the weekly model for now,” said DeBevois. “I don’t foresee changing that. Frankly, if you’re a consumer and you want to watch them all at once, you can do that at the end of the season.”
So when will Star Trek: Discovery be released? “We’re not tied to any specific release date,” said DeBevois. “It’ll be there when we’re ready to do it, and when we feel it’s in a great place. We’re not worried about anything here. We’re excited, and we’ll have more specifics as we get closer to what will likely be the release dates.”
Asked directly if Star Trek: Discovery would likely have a fall release date, DeBevois said, “we’re not stating.”
