In addition to this wild new trailer – from which we’ll have high-resolution screencaps as soon as we can get them! – CBS also announced more news about the upcoming show:
- Originally planned for a 13-episode run, Discovery has been expanded to a 15-episode first season.
- Rumored back in 2016, the network confirmed today that Talking Trek, a post-episode discussion show, will accompany the series as it debuts this fall.
The additional commitment of two additional episodes is the most tangible evidence you can find in the industry when it comes to studio support. CBS will literally be pouring millions of extra dollars into the production arm for those additional episodes, showcasing a level of support a showrunner could usually only dream of.
There is still no word on an official release date (beyond ‘this fall’), but it was reconfirmed that the first episode will be broadcast on CBS.
CBS also released this new promotional poster for the series:
