CBS’ highly anticipated Star Trek: Discovery streaming series has suffered some delays, but it sounds like the network is reasonably confident that it has at least narrowed down a window for when the show will premiere now. According to Variety, CBS’ Leslie Moonves announced at an investor conference that the series will make its debut on the network’s All Access streaming service “some time in late summer or early fall.”

That’s obviously not very specific, but he notes that the show requires “a lot of post production” and that “it’s important to get it right” because “Star Trek is the family jewels.” He also notes that the various Star Trek shows have all done well on Netflix, even the “terrible” ones, so he’s confident that Discovery will be successful whenever it hits the All Access app.
