For those worried that they won’t be able to see the new Star Trek series when it premiers on CBS over in the states, then we have good news. Netflix has managed to grab the international licensing rights to the series and will make it available across the globe.

Netflix has announced this week that it’s signed a deal with CBS Studios International to make the upcoming Star Trek series, which is set to begin in January 2017, available to over 180 countries, (excluding US and Canada) within 24 hours of their premiere on CBS.

The show is currently in production in Toronto, with plans to end in September. The show is set to have a new ship, a new crew, new characters, and much more.

“Star Trek is one of the most iconic shows in television history and we’re thrilled to partner with CBS to bring the beloved series to Trekkies around the world,” said Sean Carey, Vice President of Global Television at Netflix. “The newest chapter of the story promises to continue the rich tradition of adventure and is sure to excite fans everywhere Netflix is available.”

Details surrounding the show have been kept under wraps, but more information about the series is coming soon.
