Six episodes into its first season, CBS All Access has officially renewed the Star Trek TV series starring Sonequa Martin-Green.

"The Star Trek: Discovery premiere set a new record for subscriber sign-ups in a single day, week and month for CBS All Access". The renewal was far from surprising as the series was one of CBS' most talked about new projects and has been touted as having helped CBS All Access to enjoy its largest subscription boost since its launch. And then showrunner Bryan Fuller - who grew up as a Trekkie - exited the series to focus on his Starz show American Gods, with longtime collaborators Gretchen J. Berg and Aaron Harberts taking over after the Hannibal creator broke the season one outline. Meanwhile, the current war with the Klingons is supposed to cool down and become an interstellar cold war in less than a decade, so the show's major narrative arc needs to be resolved - and soon. It's a triumph for All Access, a streaming service that had never undertaken a venture like Discovery before and that didn't carry the high profile of competitors like Netflix or Hulu. We imagine plans are changing as ratings and reviews come in - success should breed similar outings in the future, unless showrunners want to take a major risk.

Speaking about a potential return date to The Hollywood Reporter, Kurtzman said: "Ideally, on the early side of 2019".
