Star Trek Discovery Season 2 Pike and Georgiou

Star Trek: Discovery is returning for season 2, bringing back Michael Burnham and the crew of the USS Discovery for more adventures in the vast wilderness of space, so here's a guide to how you can watch it. CBS made the bold decision to use Star Trek: Discovery as a way to boost the profile of its subscription streaming service, CBS All Access. The show's pilot episode aired on CBS, but the rest of season 1 was released exclusively on CBS All Access, and it will be the same for season 2.

Star Trek: Discovery's first season ended on a bit of a cliffhanger, with the Discovery receiving a distress call from none other than Captain Christopher Pike of the USS Enterprise. Pike will be played by Inhumans actor Anson Mount, and will be taking command of the USS Discovery in season 2. This series will also introduce Ethan Peck as Michael's half-brother, Spock, who you may remember from Star Trek: The Original Series. Here's how and when you can watch the latest episodes of Star Trek: Discovery, depending on where in the world you live.
