The second season of Star Trek: Discovery is currently in production, but the status of After Trek, the CBS All Access after show for Discovery, has remained an open question.
After inquiring about the future status of After Trek, a spokesperson for CBS gave TrekMovie the following statement:
We are reimagining After Trek for Season 2. The series will continue to have all the fan-driven elements that Star Trek: Discovery viewers enjoyed this season and more. We’ll be sure to share more details as we get closer to launch.
Trek’s after show gets a rethink
Star Trek Discovery’s after show ran for 14 episodes in its first season, with each episode made available on CBS All Access one hour after the latest episode of Discovery. Episodes also aired on Sunday nights on Space in Canada, and were made available along with episodes of Discovery on Netflix around the world.
Hosted by Matt Mira, After Trek featured live panel discussions with actors and writer/producers, along with pre-produced behind-the-scenes segments, bits of Trek trivia and audience participation via submitted questions. The after show took a deep dive into that night’s entry from Discovery and also often offered hints and tidbits about upcoming episodes, including a weekly clip from the next week’s episode.
After Trek is produced by Embassy Row, who also make AMC’s Talking Dead along with other after shows. The Trek after show has already seen some changes during the first season, including having episodes produced during Discovery’s second chapter being taped earlier on Sundays, instead of being streamed live on Sunday nights.
At this point, it isn’t known what CBS has in mind for the reimagining, but TrekMovie will provide any updates as they become available.
