Personally, I think CBS is overplaying its hand on Star Trek. Although in this case, it’s Viacom who is in talks to merge with CBS. If they are trying for fan burnout with four series, they may achieve it. There is no way they will be able to sustain four (4) series at the same time. There are only so many plots, character types, villains, tropes, etc. I can see it now. Oh look, the same plot happening in each series multiple times/season.
It’s going to be a second animated series https://redshirtsalwaysdie.com/2019/02/14/star-trek-break-free-return-cable/, somewhat similar to Star Trek: Lower Decks – FIRST Look and Details – YouTube Video. Several main differences is it’s geared towards children, it won’t go behind a paywall like the other three Star Trek series as it is supposed to be on Nickelodeon.
Disney got burned when it released a new Star Wars movie too soon after releasing a previous movie. Here’s a good article: https://www.cinemablend.com/news/2480753/bob-iger-admits-disney-put-star-wars-content-out-too-fast.
Bob Iger’s comments to the New York Times make a great deal of sense, and shows how methodically Disney and Lucasfilm are approaching the Star Wars franchise moving forward. While the company hit the ground running with the current trilogy and the first two standalone movies, Iger believes they might have put too much out at once. But that should change following the release of The Rise of Skywalker.
I believe CBS and Viacom need to take note of Bob Iger‘s observation above. I doubt they will, but I find it unwise for them to come out with so many series so fast, all but one of which is behind a paywall.
