CBS has delayed Star Trek: Discovery from a January release date to May. The delay comes from the production team, who swears that they're on production schedule, despite not having any actors cast in the series.
Executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Bryan Fuller said:
We aim to dream big and deliver, and that means making sure the demands of physical and post-production for a show that takes place entirely in space, and the need to meet an air date, don't result in compromised quality. Before heading into production, we evaluated these realities with our partners at CBS and they agreed: 'Star Trek' deserves the very best, and these extra few months will help us achieve a vision we can all be proud of.
These delays certainly have nothing to do with Kurtzman working on Now You See Me 2 and Fuller working on American Gods, and have more to do with CBS ruining the 50th anniversary.
