After only a few episodes in, Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed for a second season..
CBS All Access has announced today that Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed for a second season. The original series broke a new record for subscriber sign-ups in a single day, week and month for the digital service.
“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.”
Although I've only seen the first episode (I'm not paying for CBS All Access), I'm happy to hear it's been renewed for another season. I'm hoping to either catch it when it gets released on DVD or if/when they release the first season on Netflix (hopefully sometime later next year).
Regardless, it's good news and I hope the series lives long and CBS prospers.
