STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Adds Spock’s Father and Pushes Premiere Date and More TV News

It seems like Star Trek: Discovery takes a step back just as they make a forward move. For example, they’ve cast another character (yay) but also moved the premiere date again (boo). Read more in today’s TV-Cap and stick around for a clip from the next Star Wars Rebels, a tidbit about The Walking Dead toning down gore, and more.

Forward and Back. On a positive note, Star Trek: Discovery has added Spock’s father Sarek. He’ll be played by James Frain, which I think is an excellent decision. And on the flip side, the series has been delayed yet again. CBS All Access was set to drop the sci-fi show in May, but now it’s been pushed with no new date announced. CBS told The Hollywood Reporter: “This is an ambitious project; we will be flexible on a launch date if it’s best for the show. We’ve said from the beginning it’s more important to do this right than to do it fast.” Read more at Nerdist.

The Hows and Whys. FX will bring Legion to our screens and eye balls on February 8, and the series starring David Haller is tied to the X-Men. Haller is the son of Professor Charles Xavier. What do you need to know before you tune in? Dan has you covered in the above installment of The Dan Cave. [Nerdist]

Oh, the Possibilities. HBO knows they have a nest egg of sorts with Game of Thrones, and so of course, they’d be silly not to consider spin-offs. But what would they be? Michael W. has some suggestions and you can read them right this way.

Time to Learn. The upcoming installment Star Wars Rebels sees the beginning of Sabine’s training with the darksaber she found on Dathomir. A preview for “Trials of the Darksaber” shows Kanan teaching Sabine to use the unique weapon. Both characters shine in the short clip; I’m especially looking forward to the episode, airing on Disney XD on January 21.

Happy Returns. A quick blurb for fans of This Is Us: NBC has renewed the drama for seasons two and three. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Oh, Honey. For those of you who have been following the “will they or won’t they” regarding the Will & Grace reunion: it’s happening! No, for real this time. NBC made it official with an announcement and a teaser. The new 10-episode return is being billed as a limited series and will air during the 2017-2018 season. [Slashfilm]

Fitting In. Where will Powerless fit into the existing DC universe? Series executive producer Patrick Schumacker discussed it at Television Critics Association 2017 winter press tour. Get Jean’s full report here at Nerdist.

Saying Farewell. Girl Meets World has been canceled after three seasons. The final episode will air Friday, January 20. Before you get to the end, you can watch the cast say goodbye in the above video shared by Variety.

Dialing It Back. The season seven premiere of The Walking Dead made Twitter light up like a Christmas tree. I saw many comments about the events being too violent. The producers heard you and changed gears. Gale Anne Hurd appeared at the National Association of Television Program Executives conference and said they received the feedback and toned violence down for episodes they were still filming. Read more at Deadline. [IGN]

Just Kidding. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is coming back with season four on HBO on February 12. An amusing promo for the return of the comedic news series features Oliver getting pulled into other HBO hits. [Nerdist]

The Past and Present. It’s recap time, friends. Go in the way back machine to enjoy the latest Game of Thrones Re-Throned, then hop to the future and read about Wednesday’s Vikings.

How do you think Spock’s dad will fit into Star Trek: Discovery? Tell me in the comments.
