Weekly Discovery Facebook Live events start next week
The first season of Star Trek: Discovery featured the after show called After Trek, hosted by Matt Mira, which was made available following each episode of Discovery on CBS All Access (and aired on Space in Canada and was available on Netflix around the world). Last summer CBS announced After Trek was being “reimagined”. We now have some details on what to expect for a companion show for the second season of Discovery.
Starting next week CBS will be hosting weekly Facebook Live chats with Star Trek: Discovery stars, producers and creative talent. These Facebook Live events will be streamed on facebook.com/cbsallaccess each Friday, the day after each episode of the second season of Star Trek: Discovery is released. The first of these events will be on Friday, January 25th, the day after the second episode of the second season debuts on Thursday the 24th.
CBS has done Star Trek: Discovery Facebook Live events before, including a preview of the second chapter of the first season and some chats with behind-the-scenes people in the spring of 2018. Like those previous events, the videos of the live streams will be made available to watch after the events end. With the exception of Thursday night’s red carpet coverage, the live and archived Facebook Live events will only be available to stream in the USA.
More details on these new Star Trek: Discovery Facebook Live events will follow soon.
Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 premieres Thursday, January 17 in the USA on CBS All Access at 5:30 PM PT/8: 30 PM ET. It will air in Canada on Space at 5:00 PM PT/8:00 PM ET the same day. For all other regions, the premiere will be available on Netflix within 24-hours (January 18).
