‘Star Trek: Discovery’ season one resumes January 7th
Star Trek: Discovery is doing pretty well, it seems, with CBS All Access bringing in record numbers of subscribers. In fact, the network has given the go-ahead for a second season of the latest Star Trek series. According to a report over at Deadline, CBS has set a premiere date for the second half of the first season, unofficially known as “Chapter 2,” with the tenth episode, “Despite Yourself” to air on January 7th of next year, with a Season One finale set for February 11th.
Just like the current weekly release system, Chapter 2 episodes will be available via the All Access app for subscribers after 8:30 PM ET every Sunday. While some felt like the non-binge format was more a dying feature of old-school media, CBS appears to be doing pretty well with it, showing that there is more than one way to release a hit show in today’s streaming environment.
