Star Trek: Discovery's UK TV premiere date announced
Star Trek: Discovery is coming to UK TV, and its premiere date has now been announced.
Today (December 2), Channel 4 confirmed that the prequel series will air on E4 from Sunday, December 15 at 8pm. This will follow a day of Star Trek-dedicated content on the channel.
"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," said CBS Studios International executive Barry Chamberlain.
"This agreement features the best of both worlds – premium subscription content from a global franchise and a very popular network comedy from America's Most-Watched Network.
"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."
Despite its arrival on E4, Netflix UK will continue to have "first window rights" when the third season launches next year.
Not much is known about season three of Star Trek: Discovery just yet, but co-creator Alex Kurtzman teased at San Diego Comic-Con that it will shake up the canon.
