J.J. Abrams: CBS Is 'Not Interested' In A New Star Trek TV Series

J.J. Abrams, who is currently working on Star Wars Episode VII, discussed the possibility of Star Trek returning to the small screen, in a new interview with EW.

Sparked by the success of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. series, Abrams wasn’t optimistic about Star Trek returning to its roots on television, saying:

I have been hearing for as long as I can remember that CBS, who has the rights to the series, has just been saying they’re not interested. That’s the word I’ve been told. [A CBS Studios rep replied: “We love the Star Trek franchise, its fan base and the many possibilities for its future when the time is right.

However, an unnamed CBS Studio representative left the door open, responding to Abrams’ comments, by saying:

We love the Star Trek franchise, its fan base and the many possibilities for its future when the time is right

Industry insiders speculate that CBS doesn’t want to jeopardize the current success of the rebooted film franchise by over saturating the market. With a new Star Trek film in the pipeline for 2016, fans may be waiting awhile before a new television series goes hits the airwaves.
