CBS Interactive announced today that Star Trek: Discovery will be returning for a second season. The good news comes after CBS All Access reported that the new entry in the storied franchise has been performing well on the platform, where it has driven subscriber growth with record sign-ups in a single day, week, and month.

It has been two years since Star Trek: Discovery was originally announced, and it has been a bumpy road from then until the show was finally able to make its much-anticipated debut last month. On top of taking the time to ensure it would live up to the expectations of a new entry in the Star Trek franchise, the big-budget production was met with multiple delays and even a showrunner change during that time.

The efforts appear to have paid off, though, as critical and audience response from the show's first six episodes has been mostly positive. The franchise's built-in fan base has also undoubtedly-helped ensure a large amount of global interest in the series.

Taking place 10 years before the events of the original Star Trek series, Star Trek: Discovery follows a brand new crew on a new ship as they take on missions to discover new worlds and lifeforms during the Federation-Klingon war.

Three episodes remain in the first chapter of Season 1, with the remaining six episodes slated to air early next year. As for Season 2, a time frame has yet to be set, though early-to-mid 2019 appears a likely scenario for its return.

    Funny how they already renewed it for season 2 before it debuted--- I guess they had to say it twice to make it real.

    Ahh, you like JJ, that explains things. Well good for you. I hope you enjoy.
  • I'm enjoying the show, but I'm definitely unsubscribing from CBS All Access when it's on haitus. For me, it's not worth keeping without new episodes of this show. Pushing off season 2 until 2019 could mean big trouble for the subscription service.

    I know this is from last month, but this line: "Producer Akiva Goldsman confirmed during a press conference that Spock — or any of the original cast — will never be mentioned or included on the show."

    They mentioned Spock in the episode where Burnham had to rescue Sarek using the connection with his Katra to get him to wake up. The fact Goldsman is *that* disconnected from the show he is currently overseeing speaks volumes.
    There are three ways to do something; the right way, the wrong way, and the Janeway.
