"Star Trek: Discovery" Star Wilson Cruz Sees Season 3 Debut Delay
Star Trek: Discovery fans were cautiously optimistic that the third season of the CBS All Access series had escaped the wave of show shutdowns caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

● While Yeoh is still committed to Discovery, McNamara revealed that Kurtzman's assembled a writer's room and scripts are in motion:
● For Kurtzman, Section 31 represents the darker aspects of the franchise's universe that hasn't really been explored before so it was important that it had a different tone and its own unique mythology:
