Nemecek made a blog post on Trekland where he squashes the rumor, but giving hope that it could happen someday:
As we know by now, Netflix has changed the TV/media landscape yet again by becoming a platform of clout with original shows like House of Cards and Orange Is the New Blackâ€”popular not only with fans, but critics…and now the award shows. It’s in Netflix’s interest to be casting about for new showsâ€”including those from known franchises. I understand Star Trek is one of themâ€”especially as Trek’s 737 hours of “reruns” performs as a top draw ON Netflix. As I understand it, there have been overtures. But none taken. So far.
So there’s the truth. It isn’t really happening, but it’s not something that’s out of the realm of possibility.
