Trekkies have a reason to rejoice as “Star Trek: Discovery,” the first television series developed for the popular franchise since “Star Trek: Enterprise” ended in 2005, has been renewed for season two on Cbs All Access.

Star Trek: Discovery” premiered on CBS in September before moving to CBS All Access at the start of the second week. It stars Sonequa Martin-Green, who plays the role of first officer Michael Burnham. Due to the popularity of the franchise, subscriptions to the video-on-demand platform sky-rocketed over the past several days which is why the network opted to renew the TV series for another season, according to a report by Hollywood Reporter.

There are not many details about the second season, but it is expected to debut in early 2019.

The series had a rocky start

It was not easy for the showrunners to bring another “Star Trek” TV series to the audience as the show suffered multiple delays and the original showrunner had to be replaced.

Initially, “Discovery” was supposed to debut in January 2017. However, showrunners asked the network to delay the show’s release so that they can meet the incredibly high expectations for “Discovery.” Bryan Fuller, the original showrunner of “Discovery,” had to exit the series to work on other projects. Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts were made sole showrunners of the series.

Because of the delays, the 15-episode first season of the series is split in two; the first half will conclude in early November while the second half will premiere in January 2018.

Writers for the show already have a few ideas for the second season. Alex Kurtzman, the show’s executive producer, stated, “We have a big idea that emerged mid to late season one for something we want to do for season two.” He added, “That’s now become the spine of what we want to do for season two,” according to a report by Hollywood Reporter.

Showrunners decide to add more adult content in ‘Star Trek: Discovery’

Meanwhile, “Discovery” is not perfect by any means, with fans having difficulty getting used to the redesigned Klingon and battle set pieces. In fact, producers of the show asked their fan base to be more patient and give the series enough time to progress.

However, one of the most surprising aspects of the new series is the adult content, particularly the f-bomb. According to a report by Screen Rant, “Discovery” being on a video-on-demand platform gives showrunners the freedom to include adult language without having to worry about censorship.

In the episode titled “Choose Your Pain,” Martin-Green’s character was able to express her excitement during a scene where she said, “That was so f---ing cool.”
