Shatner in Space
Prime Video and William Shatner announced that Shatner in Space, a one-hour special, will premiere on Prime Video on Wednesday, December 15. The announcement was first made by Mr. Shatner during a virtual panel on Sunday night for CCXP, the world’s largest fan convention, in São Paulo,
The special details the events before, during, and after Shatner’s life-changing flight—which made him the oldest person to ever travel to the cosmos—and the growing friendship between the Star Trek icon and Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos, whose dreams of space travel, like many, were inspired by the original Star Trek series.
“My time in space was the most profound experience I could have ever imagined,” said Shatner. “This special documenting my journey gives a dramatic view of that experience and my hope is that it inspires the world to see we must go to space to save Earth.”
Shatner in Space debuts on Amazon Prime Video on December 15 in the U.S., Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand, with additional territories launching in early 2022.
