The new Star Trek TV series will boldly go where no other Star Trek TV series has gone before: Toronto. Confirmed by Trek Core, the upcoming TV/on demand series will film in the Canadian city, making it the first live-action Star Trek TV show not to film in Southern California.
This location news isn't all that surprising given that the showrunner behind the series, Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies), filmed all three seasons of Hannibal in the city, and is currently filming Starz' adaptation of Neil Gaiman's American Gods.
Star Trek TV series will happen sometime later in the year, after things have winded down on American Gods. CBS has booked studio space starting in September, with the series set to premiere on CBS, before moving to All-Access in January 2017. Plot-wise, so far all we have (offically) us a vague, yet still somehow exciting synopsis:
The brand-new Star Trek will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.
