Driven by interest in the series, CBS claims January was a record month for subscriber sign-ups, and also saw a new record for total streams — as well as the highest volume of subscribers streaming a CBS All Access original series to date. Picard also ranked as the biggest debut in the streaming service’s history.

And it wasn’t even close: Star Trek: Picard’s streaming numbers warped 180% over the previous record holder, Star Trek: Discovery, according to the network.

A new episode of Star Trek: Picard drops every Thursday on CBS All Access in the U.S.  A second season was already ordered before the first season debuted.
