For those overly worried about the status of After Trek, the Star Trek: Discovery aftershow that aired alongside new episodes of the CBS All Access series, have no fear! There is going to be an opportunity to see more of the program in the future. It’s just going to happen in a slightly different form than usual.
According to a report from TrekCore, the aftershow is not going to be ending, and will be “reimagined” in some form for the upcoming season. A representative for CBS All Access claims that the series will “continue to have all the fan-driven elements that Star Trek: Discovery viewers enjoyed this season — and more.”
Ultimately, new episodes of Star Trek: Discovery are going to start airing starting in 2019, so you’ve got a little while to wait and see precisely what the new iteration of this series looks like. We hope that Matt Mira is still involved (he’s been a personal favorite from the early days of the Nerdist Podcast), and beyond that, we hope that it’s still a celebration of all things Star Trek in the way in which it’s been to date. It’s had a lot of fun quirks but like with any experiment, there are a few things that do need to be worked out and retooled here and there. This is different than your standard aftershow given that it’s on a streaming service and things have to be timed and planned out a slightly different way.
Given the sort of content that is coming for season 2 of Discovery — including some significant ties between this show and the original series — it definitely seems like there’s a lot to look forward to. Season 1 absolutely showed that it can do some of the original material justice and we don’t have too much to worry about from that vantage point.
