CBS has been pretty nebulous about just when the U.S.S. Discovery will set out on it’s newest adventure for season two of Star Trek: Discovery, dropping various teases and even a first trailer with just 2019 as the release. At last, they’ve given the series a bit more of a firm return.
Debuting a poster for the season on their Twitter account, the CBS All Access show revealed that it will begin airing its second season in January 2019. There is no firm date within that January net but at least fans know a time when they can look forward to more adventures with the latest Star Trek crew.
The poster features the usual Federation logo traced with a red color, a call out to the mentioned mysterious red lights that are part of the ship’s new mission as shown in the first trailer. That trailer showed that not only do the lights have some unexplained connection to series lead Michael Burnham’s (Sonequa Martin-Green) adopted brother Spock (Ethan Peck) but leads to Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) of the U.S.S. Enterprise (Spock’s commanding officer) to take command of the Discovery since they are lacking a captain at the moment.
Star Trek: Discovery stars Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz, Mount and more. The series begins rolling out in January exclusively on the CBS All-Access platform.
