Star Trek – New Series Starring Characters From Discovery Headed to CBS All Access
Trekkies rejoice! CBS All Access has announced another new Star Trek series. The new show will star Star Trek: Discovery fan favorites Rebecca Romijn, Ethan Peck, and Anson Mount as their respective characters. The show’s title even perks the interests of a non-trekkie such as myself, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
The series will be set 10 years before Captain Kirk came aboard as captain of the Enterprise. Check out what executive VP and head of programming at CBS All Access Julie McNamara had to say on the matter below.
Executive producer Akiva Goldsman:
CBS appears to be all in on taking Star Trek‘s small screen adventures to where few shows have gone before (ducks). And as I said above, while I’m not big on the Trek I am happy for the fans. It’s great to see a fanbase get what they want. It’s also nice to see the powers that be listening to the fanbase, as Kurtzman mentioned above.
It stands to reason that with my love of sci-fi, I should be a Star Trek fan. It really doesn’t make much sense to me. However, I do have a healthy interest in the adult animated Star Trek: Lower Decks, which according to Variety is set to premiere later this year.
