‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Officially Renewed for Season 2
You didn’t think CBS would be so quick to dismiss its All-Access jewel, did you? No, the U.S.S. Discovery will continue its mission in the years before Kirk and Spock, as CBS officially confirms Star Trek: Discovery will return for Season 2.
CBS made the announcement official after Discovery aired its sixth episode, “Lethe,” on Sunday. Entertainment Weekly adds that Bryan Fuller’s replacement showrunners Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg are likely to return for Season 2, while CBS adds of the renewal:
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. This series has a remarkable creative team and cast who have demonstrated their ability to carry on the Star Trek legacy.
It remains unclear where a second season would fall, given that Discovery Season 1 will wrap its first half on Sunday, November 12, and pick up the remainder of its inaugural fifteen episodes in January. Given all the time and preparation that went into Season 1, a September 2018 return is not necessarily guaranteed.
In the meantime, the first six Star Trek: Discovery episodes are available to stream on CBS All-Access. Where might the series boldly go in Season 2?
