CBS All Access, the CBS Television Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service, today announced After Trek, Star Trek: Discovery‘s live companion after-show, which will debut following the show’s premiere this Sunday and will be hosted by Matt Mira.
After Trek‘s first live, in-studio guests will include Star Trek: Discovery stars Sonequa Martin-Green (First Officer Michael Burnham), James Frain (Ambassador Sarek) and Star Trek: Discovery executive producer and co-showrunner Aaron Harberts.
The inaugural episode will be available exclusively to CBS All Access subscribers on Sunday, Sept. 24 (11:00 PM, ET/8:00 PM, PT), following CBS All Access’ launch of the first two episodes of Star Trek: Discovery. Starting Sunday, Oct. 1, all subsequent After Trek episodes will be available to stream live at 9:30 PM, ET following new episodes of Star Trek: Discovery.
