Back in 2017, the first episode of Star Trek: Discovery made its debut on CBS before moving to CBS All Access. Now, Discovery is temporarily moving back to CBS to fill in one of the network’s programming holes. Via The Wrap, the first season of Star Trek: Discovery will air on CBS this fall.
Discovery‘s first episode will air on Thursday, September 24. The remaining episodes of the first season will follow on Thursday nights at 10pm. CBS isn’t the only network revisiting “lightly used” shows from streaming services. The CW is also showing the first season of DC Universe’s Swamp Thing this fall. Because the coronavirus pandemic led to an extended shutdown, the networks badly need the content.

Although many television shows are resuming production, it’s unclear when CBS’ signature shows will be able to resume. Potentially, CBS could use Discovery season 2 or other CBS All Access original series to fill the gap.
In the meantime, CBS All Access will drop the third season premiere of Star Trek: Discovery on October 15. New episodes of Star Trek: Lower Decks are currently streaming weekly on CBS All Access.
