'Star Trek: Discovery' Renewed for Season 2 By CBS!

Monday, 23 Oct, 2017

"We are extremely proud of what they've accomplished and are thrilled to be bringing fans a second season of this tremendous series".

Discovery has certainly benefited from plenty of hype, since it's the first Trek show to air as a TV show since 2005.

Star Trek: Discovery premiered on CBS with 9.6m viewers before transitioning to the CBS All Access subcription service.

The announcement on Monday comes just weeks after the series' premiere on CBS' digital video-streaming service.

The new incarnation of the storied franchise had a challenging two-year road to the screen. Martin-Green is the first woman of color to lead a Star Trek series and Michael Burnham is the first lead character in a Star Trek series who is not a Starfleet captain.

The first six episodes of the show are available now-with three more coming in the next few weeks, ending November 12.

Are you pleased with CBS' decision to pick up a second season of Star Trek: Discovery and was there ever any doubt in your mind that the latest installment in the Star Trek franchise would be a one-and-done series?

Season 1 of Star Trek: Discovery is now available for streaming on CBS All Access with new episodes dropping every Sunday night at 8:30/7:30c.

Star Trek: Discovery, which was already boldly going where no version of the show had gone before, will continue its mission, presumably in 2018.

Discovery, co-starring Doug Jones, Jason Isaacs, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh, is produced by CBS Television Studios, Kurtzman's studio-based Secret Hideout, Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers.

Discovery joins a roster of originals at CBS All Access that also includes The Good Fight (a spinoff of The Good Wife) and the upcoming dramas Strange Angel, $1 and comedy No Activity.
