In not-so-good news for #StarTrek fans, #Paramount has reportedly shelved plans for #StarTrekIV. Contributing factors appear to include:
- Poor box office revenue for “Star Trek Beyond”, the third film.
- Contract negotiations with Captain Kirk star Chris Pine (and Chris Hemsworth, who played his father George in the 2009 reboot) collapsed around August, 2018, which we reported about.
- Attached director S.J. Clarkson has moved on to direct the upcoming>Game Of Thrones prequel pilot.
A new #StarTrek series will debut in late 2019 on #CBS’ #AllAccess streaming service. The new show will feature the return of veteran “Star Trek” #TNG actor Sir Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Jean-Luc Picard.
This new series will join “Star Trek: Discovery” and an upcoming animated “Star Trek” series that will titled “Lower Decks”. This will give the CBS All Access streaming service 3 “Star Trek” series.
