Star Trek: Discovery announced for E4 in the UK – here's when you can watch

Star Trek: Discovery has been announced for E4 in the UK.

The popular CBS All Access show is already available to watch on Netflix for those in the UK, but those without a subscription will be able to watch in 2020.

Netflix UK will continue to have "first window rights" when the third season launches next year.

E4 will also be premiering US sitcom Man with a Plan, starring Friends' Matt LeBlanc, in 2020. Man with a Plan will return to CBS for a fourth season next year.

"We're excited to bring the linear television rights for Star Trek: Discovery to the international market and launch in the UK with our valued friends at Channel 4," CBS Studios International executive Barry Chamberlain said.

"Channel 4 is already a licensee for several of our top-rated franchises, including The Good Fight and Charmed, and we are confident they will have continued success with Star Trek: Discovery and Man with a Plan."

Not much is known about the third season of Star Trek: Discovery, but co-creator Alex Kurtzman teased at San Diego Comic-Con that it will shake up the canon.

Star Trek: Discovery returns for season 3 in 2020. It airs on CBS All Access in the US and Netflix internationally, including the UK.
