Showrunner Bryan Fuller dropped some interesting details on the upcoming Star Trek TV series in an interview with Collider at the Saturn Awards.
The biggest revelation was that the new series will run for a total of 13 episodes, which seems very reasonable given the inevitable high production costs. He went on to say that one story arc will be told over the course of the 13 episodes, so it sounds like we're in for some deep storytelling.
Unsurprisingly, he also said that we'll have to wait until Comic-Con for more specific plot details, but he did drop one more huge tidbit of information: filming will last from around September until March. So we really don't have long to wait until TV boldly goes where no man has gone before.
