“Star Trek: Discovery” continues to live long and prosper.
CBS All Access has given a second-season pickup to the latest series in the venerable sci-fi franchise, the streaming service announced Monday.
The series premiered last month, and the initial six episodes are currently available to stream on CBS All Access. Season 1 has been divided into two chapters, with the final installment in the nine-episode first chapter debuting Nov. 12, and the six-episode second chapter kicking off in January 2018.
The “Star Trek: Discovery” launch set a record for subscriber sign-ups to the streaming service in a single day, week and month.
The series centers on the crew of the Starfleet, with a cast that includes Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Jason Isaacs, Anthony Rapp, Michelle Yeoh and Shazad Latif.
