This Sunday is the final episode of Star Trek: Discovery to air in 2017, but it won’t be too long to wait for the return of the back half of Season 1, as CBS announced today the series will return on Sunday, January 7 to CBS All Access.

Along with the return schedule for 2018, the network also revealed the title and logline of Episode 110, “Despite Yourself,” which kicks off the last six episodes of the season.


Chapter One Finale of “Star Trek: Discovery” Available to Stream Sunday, Nov. 12 after 8:30 PM, ET; All Episodes of Chapter One Available to Binge on CBS All Access

Nov. 9, 2017 – CBS All Accessthe CBS Television Network’s digital subscription video on-demand and live streaming service, today announced season one of its hit original series STAR TREK: DISCOVERY will return with chapter two beginning on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018 after 8:30 PM, ET.

The second chapter of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY begins with episode 10, “Despite Yourself”:

While in unfamiliar territory, the U.S.S. Discovery crew is forced to get creative in their next efforts to survive opposing and unprecedented forces and return home.

The first eight episodes of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY are currently available to stream on CBS All Access, and episode nine, the chapter one finale, will be available beginning Sunday, Nov. 12 after 8:30 PM, ET.

Following the chapter two debut, all new episodes will be available on demand weekly after 8:30 PM, ET on Sundays exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers in the U.S. The second chapter features the remaining six episodes of season one, with the season finale dropping on Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018.

STAR TREK: DISCOVERY follows the voyages of Starfleet on their missions to discover new worlds and new life forms, and one Starfleet officer who must learn that to truly understand all things alien, you must first understand yourself. The series will feature a new ship and new characters, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.

The release also details the end of Discovery for this first season, concluding on Sunday, February 11.

Actor Wilson Cruz also revealed in Twitter today that the January return episode is directed by TNG alum Jonathan Frakes.

It also sounds like this Sunday’s episode will conclude with the USS Discovery being in an unusual state as the description for 110 says the crew will be “forced to get creative in their next efforts to survive opposing and unprecedented forces and return home” — just where will the Discovery need to ‘return home’ from?

We’ll find out on Sunday!

We’ll bring your our review of the fall finale — “Into the Forest I Go” — next week, along with the rest of our ongoing Star Trek: Discovery coverage!

  • James

    So far, I’d say his has been the best first season of any Trek, bar TOS. I hope season 2 does not take too long to come around!

    • Quintillion Tesla


    • Matthew Burns

      I am still hopeful that Season 2 could launch in October 2018. It all depends on when they begin actual shooting. If they start by April or May I could envision a number of episodes ready by the Autumn.

    • Christian Gomez

      Best first season, perhaps sure looks that way. But would say that Star Trek Enterprise’s season 3 season-long story arc with the Xindi War was way better written than this first season of Star Trek Discovery with the Klingon war. Discovery is much more episodic than Enterprise was. Very sad that Enterprise was cancelled so pre-maturely – perhaps most underrate Star Trek series.

      • GIBBS v2

        I might be on the outside on this but I HATED the goofy Xindi arc. There were certainly highlight episodes but I jut did not care for all the drama.

        Season 4 was tops though.

        • Quintillion Tesla

          Yeah, I thought the Xindi arc was clumsy.

        • Christine

  • Jaro Stun

    sooo..mirror universe at last?

  • Fiery Little One

    It’s coming back earlier than I expected.

    • GIBBS v2

      Me too.

  • Christian Gomez

    Sounds like at the end of episode 9 Discovery jumps and gets stranded in the Mirror Universe.

    • Bjoernar Dohm

      My thought exactly.

  • prometheus59650

    Sounds like it’s gonna turn into Discoyager for a little bit.

    • TUP

      Nah, Im thinking Mirror

      • prometheus59650

        I’d be fine if they stayed there for 2 or 3 episodes.

  • Lonewriter

    I just don’t like the fact you have to pay to watch it. If it was on Netflix in the US I could understand it.

    • Victorinox

      So don’t watch it. People make those choices all the time. I don’t pay for HBO so I don’t watch Game of Thrones, but I don’t complain on the GOT or HBO boards or articles demanding that the show be free.

      I honestly don’t understand why people think a premium show, that has been called “movie quality” or “cinematic” in almost every review, would be free. Have you ever heard someone say “I won’t watch Star Trek Beyond because I have to pay a movie ticket! no way!”

      It is not even expensive. It is $1.60 per episode if you use the free week, and suspend your subscription in December when no new episodes will be available.

      It’s been two months since the show premiered people. Time to move on from the “I won’t pay” theme.

      • prometheus59650

        And that two hour movie, in most markets, that ticket costs more than four episodes of this show.

    • prometheus59650


      Paying is paying.

      Or is it that you already have Netflix. Well, that’s a bummer and everything, but CBS has every right to take their property and try to monetize it in new ways.

      And it’s not “corporate evil” to do that.

    • TUP

      Why, is Netflix free?

    • The Science Fiction Oracle

      Wow, Netflix is free now?

    • jurassicbond

      I agree.

  • Victorinox

    They better hurry up with Season 2. I’m stopping my subscription after the Season 1 finale. There really is nothing else on the service now that is appealing to me.

    Maybe they can do some mini episodes to bridge the gap, like Battlestar Galatica did a few years ago with their webisodes!

  • GhostLoveScore

    Does that mean that Klingon war is finally over?

  • Matthew Burns

    Star Wars TV show incoming!
    Whole New Star Wars Trilogy incoming!

    Star Trek Discovery better up its game….

    • The Science Fiction Oracle

      “Whole New Star Wars Trilogy incoming!”

      A longer time yet ago, in a more remote portion of a galaxy far, far away…

      • Matthew Burns

        My initial reaction was; Awesome!

        But when I stop to think about this, it is really quite worrying, in regards to Disney jumping the gun with their Star Wars crusade. Will a Star Wars TV show on a TV budget really work? It will have to do more Star Trekkian things because you cannot have space fights and battles every episode!

        And a new Star Wars trilogy. That I curious about. Part of me is really hoping it is the rumoured in degelopment Obi Wan movie being made into trilogy.

        • The Science Fiction Oracle

          Pretty much agree with you…skeptical of TV show (aka the forgettable Agents of Shield for example), but a new trilogy hopefully taking place thousands of years before in the Old Republic, sounds very cool

          • Kirksdeadjim

            Im sick of Star Wars to be honest.They havnt even finished the current trilogy and already they are talking about the next trilogy!

  • jurassicbond

    I’m happy for the show being renewed…but honestly it’s not for me.
