Star Trek Discovery Season 2
The experiment has been a success, because news has just dropped that CBS is renewing Star Trek: Discovery. The show, which was used as a tentpole to launch CBS’ All Access streaming service, has been enough of a success to justify a second season of episodes. The move comes as a vote of confidence for both the show and its platform, since it has recently aired the sixth of its fifteen-episode first season. Now, a second run of Discovery will air, presumably at some point toward the back-half of 2018. Discovery has certainly benefited from plenty of hype, since it’s the first Trek show to air as a TV show since 2005. The pull of the Star Trek name was always going to be a draw, but it wasn’t clear how much of a draw given the saga’s lackluster popularity at the box office. CBS refused to offer numbers, but did boast that Discovery’s debut lead to the highest number of sign-ups in the history of its All Access service.
