Netflix and CBS Studios International have signed an international licensing agreement for the new Star Trek television series.

Netflix will be the exclusive home of Star Trek in 188 countries (excluding the US and Canada) with each episode of the show available within 24 hours of its US premiere.

The series will debut in January 2017 with a new ship, new characters and new missions.

“The launch of the new Star Trek will truly be a global television event,” said Armando Nuñez, president and CEO, CBS Studios International.

“Star Trek is already a worldwide phenomenon and this international partnership will provide fans around the world, who have been craving a new series for more than a decade, the opportunity to see every episode virtually at the same time as viewers in the US. Thanks to our world-class partners at Netflix, the new Star Trek will definitely be ‘hailing on all frequencies’ throughout the planet.”

Sean Carey, vice president of global television at Netflix, added: “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.

“The newest chapter of the story promises to continue the rich tradition of adventure and is sure to excite fans everywhere Netflix is available.”

All 727 existing episodes of the Star Trek library, including Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise, will also be available on Netflix around the world by the end of 2016.
