CBS Renews All Access Original Series ‘Star Trek: Discovery’

CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network’s digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, announced today the second season renewal of its hit original series “Star Trek: Discovery.”

“In just six episodes, ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ has driven subscriber growth, critical acclaim and huge global fan interest for the first premium version of this great franchise,” said Marc DeBevoise, President and Chief Operating Officer, CBS Interactive.

“This series has a remarkable creative team and cast who have demonstrated their ability to carry on the ‘Star Trek’ legacy. We are extremely proud of what they’ve accomplished and are thrilled to be bringing fans a second season of this tremendous series.”

The launch of “Star Trek: Discovery” on CBS All Access broke a new record for subscriber sign-ups in a single day, week and month for the service.

The first six episodes of “Star Trek: Discovery” are currently available to stream on CBS All Access. All new episodes are available on demand weekly after 8:30 PM, ET on Sundays exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers in the U.S. As previously announced, “Star Trek: Discovery” will air in two chapters. The final episode of chapter one will debut on Sunday, Nov. 12, and the second chapter, featuring the remaining six episodes, will return in January 2018.

“Star Trek: Discovery” follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series will feature a new ship and new characters, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

“Star Trek: Discovery’s” cast includes Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Jason Isaacs, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh, Shazad Latif, Mary Wiseman, Mary Chieffo, James Frain and more.

“Star Trek: Discovery” is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout, Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment.
