So fans might be a little bummed to discover that Star Trek Discovery season 2 might not arrive until early 2019. Viewers can engage with the show via social media, as well, using the #aftertrek hashtag, says CBS. Its immediate predecessor, Enterprise brought in 12.5 million for its debut episode. But those premieres were in a different time. "I believed saving you and the crew was more important than Starfleet's principles", she tells Georgiou.
After a number of unfortunate delays, CBS is finally releasing the first season of its long-awaited science fiction television series, "Star Trek: Discovery". If early results are any indication, the answer is yes.

Sadly, given that Discovery is only on CBS All Access in the USA, it is likely only those numbers will matter when it comes to the future of the series. But Shatner had nothing but praise for Star Trek: Discovery - particularly for Jason Isaacs, who stars as Captain Lorca. All subsequent After Trek episodes will be available to stream live at 9:30 PM, ET following new episodes of Star Trek Discovery and be available to watch on demand.
