Star Trek 4 Development

News of Star Trek 4 officially being in development first surfaced last summer. Producer J.J. Abrams confirmed work on the sequel and revealed it would somehow bring back Chris Hemsworth as George Kirk, the father of James T. Kirk who perished in exciting opening sequence of the first installment of the reboot that established a whole new timeline in the Star Trek universe. Since then all we’ve heard is vague hype about the sequel, and it sounds like the cast is unsure whether it will actually happen.

In a recent interview, Star Trek franchise star Zachary Quinto says that he’s still waiting for the script to be completed, and despite being hopeful that he’ll be able to reprise his role as Mr. Spock, the movie doesn’t seem to have been greenlit yet.

The upside to being a movie and television fan in the age of the internet is that you can follow upcoming projects every step of the way! The downside to being a movie and television fan in the age of the internet is that you can follow upcoming projects every step of the way. This double-edged sword has cut both ways for Star Trek: Discovery, a show that has allowed fans to cheer on the thought of more Star Trek while also wincing at every single little hiccup, even if it was a natural growing pain.

At the very least, it’s starting to look like one aspect of CBS’ new series is set in stone. Sort of. Kind of. Unless something goes horribly wrong, Star Trek: Discovery will premiere this Fall. Find out what was said about the Star Trek Discovery release date.

And if the goal of this new video, which showcases footage of sets, uniforms, and concept art from the show, was to get me unbearably and unreasonably pumped that another proper Star Trek series is on the way…mission accomplished.
