Status: This show received mixed reviews during its first season but is allegedly trying to course-correct in its second year. Word is that viewership did not quite meet up to expectations during its initial run, but expect CBS to think long and hard before entertaining the possibility of cancellation. The companion series Star Trek: Short Treks, which consists of short episodes, is also streaming on CBS All Access.
