Could A New "Star Trek" TV Series Be On The Horizon?

Could A New "Star Trek" TV Series Be On The Horizon?

For the first time in a long time, it's good to be a Star Trek fan. And after J.J. Abrams releases the highly-anticipated sequel to his 2009 franchise reboot next summer, there is the possibility of the launch of a brand-new Trek TV show for a new generation of fans. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, producer Bryan Fuller (Heroes) revealed that he has spoken to director Bryan Singer about bringing Trek back to the small screen.

"Bryan and I are big fans of Trek and have discussed a take on what we would do, and we would love to do it," Fuller said. "I don’t think anything is going to happen in any official capacity until after the next movie comes out. And I'm sure it would be wisely under J.J. Abrams' purview of what happens. He’s the guardian of Trek right now."

We would completely endorse a new Star Trek TV series, as long as it continues with the look and tone of Abrams' film universe. TV audiences have ignored new Trek shows in the past due to their slower pace and older characters; however, if a new show keeps things young and exciting, there is a good chance it could catch on with a new fanbase.
