Fans of the sci-fi franchise around the world won’t have to worry about how they’ll see the newest entry in Roddenberry’s creation now that Netflix gets international rights to the new Star Trek series in 188 countries.
The new deal between CBS Studios and Netflix will bring not just the upcoming series, but all previous series since the original one. With the exclusive rights to Star Trek, Netflix will be offering fans around the world all the previous series’ 727 episodes (from Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Enterprise) by the end of 2016.
According to Netflix and CBS Studios International, “each episode of the new series will be available globally within 24 hours of its U.S. premiere.” For US viewers, the first episode of the upcoming series will be seen on CBS in January, before moving to CBS All Access.
“The launch of the new ‘Star Trek’ will truly be a global television event,” said Armando Nuñez, President and CEO at CBS Studios International.
Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller are the co-creators and executive producers of the new series based on the original Star Trek series by Gene Roddenberry.
