After multiple delays, not only has commenced filming, but it officially has a premiere date as well.
According to , CBS announced this morning that the long-awaited reboot willair thepremiere episode of the first season back to back this coming September 24 at 8:30 p.m. ET, following the nationally televised NFL broadcast.
Sing it with me:
The new series is CBS second show to anchor their streaming service, CBS: All Access.
Concurrent with the premiere over the airwaves, CBS All Access will release both the first and second episodes for streaming. (This way, if the premiere has a major cliff hanger, we can all switch over the CBS All Access when it finishes and gets another installment right away.)
Unlike Netflix, the show will not be released in binge format. Post-premiere, the 15 episode season will be split into two halves, with the opening eight episodes arriving on Sunday nights through the beginning of November. (November 8th to be exact.)
The second half of the season wont begin releasing episodes until January,giving the series the traditional winter break hiatus that we would expect from a regular network show.
is the first small screen version of the franchise since which went off the air in 2005, over ten years ago.
The new series, which is the most diverse to date for the franchise, starsSonequa Martin-Green () as First Officer Michael Burnham, and Michelle Yeoh () as Captain Philippa Georgiou.
Mark your calendars everyone: September 24, 2017, 8:30 p.m. ET (7:30 p.m. CT). Lets all hope that the NFL matchup that night doesnt go into overtime.
