The New Yorker is predicting that the rebooted Star Trek series that was a hit on CBS and NBC will never be revived.
The newspaper said that the series was “on its way out.”
“Star Trek: Beyond” is set to premiere on April 12.
The show stars Chris Pine as Lt.
Hikaru Sulu, played by Zachary Quinto, who is stranded on an alien planet after a series of mishaps.
“Star Trek” is the first Trek film in 20 years to be released after decades of making films in the United States and Europe.
“Beyond” is expected to be the third movie to be produced for CBS.
“It’s a very exciting time for the Star Trek universe, for the fans, and the filmmakers,” CBS President Mark Pedowitz told reporters on Wednesday.
“We’re excited about what this franchise will bring to our audience.”
Pedowitz added that the show is “a perfect fit” for CBS, which will be bringing the franchise to an “awesome new time period” with “newly acquired content.”
The show was created by Brannon Braga, who wrote the screenplay and wrote the first three episodes.
The original series was created and directed by J.J. Abrams.
The franchise has since expanded to include six movies and six TV series, including the reboot that came out in 2018.
The rebooted show is scheduled to premiere next year.
“There’s a lot of potential for this franchise to be on another level,” Pedowitz said, “and we think it’s a great fit.”
