We might not get another Star Trek movie but rest assured there are plenty of programmes that will satisfy such as Star Trek: Lower Decks. The new animated series will focus on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos.
The series is produced by CBS’ Eye Animation Productions, CBS Television Studios’ new animation arm; Secret Hideout; and Roddenberry Entertainment. Secret Hideout’s Alex Kurtzman and Heather Kadin and Roddenberry Entertainment’s Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth and Katie Krentz will serve as executive producers alongside creator Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty).
Aaron Baiers (Secret Hideout), who brought McMahan to the project, will serve as a co-executive producer. The series will air exclusively on CBS All Access in the United States and will be distributed concurrently internationally by CBS Studios International.
Star Trek: Lower Decks is due to arrive on CBS All Access in early August.
