Following the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery this Sunday, CBS All Access subscribers will see the debut of the newly renamed companion post-show on the over-the-top subscription streaming service.
Originally branded as Talking Trek, CBS has decided to rename the series After Trek. We assume this is to help differentiate and eliminate any confusion of a connection AMC’s Walking Dead after show Talking Dead.
CBS has already updated the artwork and included the show’s new logo in a clip available on the streaming service.
After Trek will premiere on CBS All Access at 11 pm ET, following the second episode of Star Trek: Discovery, which will be exclusive to the streaming service in the United States.
UPDATE: Nerdist’s Matt Mira has been named the host of After Trek.
The cast of Star Trek: Discovery includes Sonequa Martin-Green (First Officer Michael Burnham), Michelle Yeoh (Captain Philippa Georgiou) Jason Isaacs (Captain Gabriel Lorca), Chris Obi (T’Kuvma), Doug Jones (Lt. Saru), Kenneth Mitchell (Kol), James Frain (Sarek), and Shazad Latif (Kol), Anthony Rapp (Lt. Stamets), Wilson Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber), Sam Vartholomeos (Ensign Connor), Mary Wiseman (Cadet Tilly), Mary Chieffo (L’Rell) and Rainn Wilson (Harry Mudd).
Star Trek: Discovery will premiere on Sunday, September 24 at 8:30 PM ET on CBS. Immediately following the first episode’s release, the second episode will be available in the U.S. on CBS All Access, with subsequent episodes released on Sundays. The first eight episodes will run from September 24 through November 5, with the series returning in January 2018.
