Fall is coming, and with it the anticipated premieres of some television shows that will hopefully get us out of the late summer doldrums.  There hasn’t been much going on in the theater.  I did see The Hitman’s Bodyguard, but didn’t end up reviewing it.  (Long story short: if you really need to go to the movies it’s OK, but the scene stealer in that film is Salma Hayek.)

Anyway, below are some series (and mini-series) I’m looking forward to or that I thought you might be.  Hit the Calendar page also for other upcoming dates of interest.  Entertainment Weekly has a comprehensive list here.

Outlander – Starz – Sunday, Sept. 10

Star Trek: Discovery – CBS All Access – Sunday, Sept. 24; Netflix will show the series outside of the U.S. and Canada, including the U.K., the day after it airs here

The Voice – NBC – Monday, Sept. 25/Tuesday, Sept. 26

Another SDCC release, this time from CBS for its upcoming series Star Trek: Discovery. This shows the starship being released from its docking bay:

Unfortunately the series will reside on CBS All Access, which means a paid subscription. There will be a sneak peek on the regular CBS network before it goes All Access only.

Anton Yelchin, Chekov to us Star Trek fans, passed away Sunday from a freak car accident.  He was 27 years old.

Apparently he had exited his car on his steep driveway when it rolled toward him, pinning him against a brick mailbox pillar.

His Star Trek co-stars and director J.J. Abrams have tweeted their sorrow at his passing.  J.J. wrote this:


Yelchin had finished filming the upcoming Star Trek Beyond, directed by Justin Lin.  He had also completed a couple of other films before his death, including Thoroughbred, due in 2017.

Please remember to set your emergency brake on steep inclines, folks.  Be safe out there.

While we’re on the subject of Star Trek, you may want to know that the new CBS television series will be available only with a paid subscription to CBS All Access.  Yes, that sucks.

A brief teaser showing the new logo (with what I think is an odd hatched design on the insignia) was released and is below.

The San Diego Comic Con has had some pretty cool events (Loki anyone?), but now this will be the venue for the premiere of Star Trek Beyond, as reported by Deadline.  It will be shown on an outdoor IMAX screen at the Embarcadero Marina Park on July 20th.  Members of the cast and crew will be attending.

Oh yeah, and here’s a new trailer from Paramount starring some aliens who clearly need a new moisturizing routine:

Bryan Fuller will take charge of CBS’s new Star Trek series, debuting in 2017, as reported by Deadline.   He began his association with the franchise by writing for both Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager.

Fuller was also the creator of one of my all-time favorite shows, Pushing Daisies.

Paramount has released on YouTube the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond, which hits theaters July 22nd, 2016.

If this looks and sounds like The Fast & The Furious in space, that’s because it’s directed by F&F’s Justin Lin.  Can’t say I’m a fan of this, I might have to wait for some reviews to see if it’s worth a ticket.
