With the release of season two now only five weeks away – on January 17th, CBS has released a third – and likely final – trailer for the second season of Star Trek: Discovery. CBS has also released a new poster and made the extension of the season to 14 episodes official.
This new trailer features a lot of new footage, including the new Spock, as well as Saru and his sister Siranna who we met last week in Short Treks “The Brightest Star.”

The official release from CBS also includes a new synopsis for the overall arc of the second season:
After answering a distress signal from the U.S.S. Enterprise, season two of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY finds the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery joining forces with Captain Christopher Pike on a new mission to investigate seven mysterious red signals and the appearance of an unknown being called the Red Angel. While the crew must work together to unravel their meaning and origin, Michael Burnham is forced to face her past with the return of her estranged brother, Spock.
And there is this cool new poster key art for season two.
The new key art for season 2 seems to have taken some inspiration from the classic early NBC promotional art for The Original Series by James Bama, seen below.
Season two officially now 14 episodes
Lastly, CBS made official what Pike actor Anson Mount revealed last weekend at an event. The second season has been extended to 14 episodes from the previously announced 13.
The second season of Star Trek: Discovery premieres Thursday, Jan. 17, 2019 at 8:30 PM, ET/5:30 PM, PT on CBS All Access in the United States. It will air Thursdays in Canada on Space and be available on Bell Media’s CraveTV streaming service. It will also be available on Netflix in 188 countries around the world.
