Star Trek: Discovery renewed for season 2. Duh

CBS All-Access has renewed the Star Trek TV series for a second season, according to Variety.

Are you pleased with CBS' decision to pick up a second season of Star Trek: Discovery and was there ever any doubt in your mind that the latest installment in the Star Trek franchise would be a one-and-done series?

Will the second season of Discovery be on CBS All Access?

Star Trek: Discovery marks the first Star Trek television franchise in twelve years. The news comes after the show broke the record for having the most sign-ups in a single day for the service. "This series has a remarkable creative team and cast who have demonstrated their ability to carry on the "Star Trek' legacy". British sci-fi dramedy "Misfits", Fox's "Firefly", Netflix import "Black Mirror", CW's "The Flash" and Nichelle Nichols' turn on the original "Star Trek", are the only major examples of Black women stepping into the forefront.

The most common complaint we get here though, is that "Star Trek: Discovery" is only available on CBS's standalone streaming service CBS All Access.

The first season of Star Trek: Discovery was split into two chapters, the first which will conclude with episode 8 on Sunday, Nov. 12. 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. The first season's second chapter will debut sometime in January 2018.

Star Trek: Discovery follows disgraced Star Fleet officer Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) who finds herself working onboard the mysterious USS Discovery which is run by the equally as mysterious Captain Gabriel Lorca (Jason Isaacs).
