CBS All Access, the network’s streaming service, is bringing back some fan-favorite characters for another brand new “Star Trek” series.
Titled Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will feature Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One, and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock. The series will follow Pike, Spock, and Number One in the decade before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise as they explore new worlds around the galaxy.
The trio of characters got first introduced into the revamped CBS “Star Trek” universe in Season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery. All three received praise for their performances, quickly gaining fans enthusiastic attention.
This announcement serves as further proof that CBS’s commitment to developing and expanding the Trek universe was not an empty promise. As most fans already know, CBS has bet big on “Star Trek” in recent years. Including “Strange New Worlds,” there are now five shows in the shared universe on All Access: “Star Trek: Discovery” (Season 3 debuting later this year), “Star Trek: Picard” (Season 1 aired this year, already renewed for Season 2), “Star Trek: Short Treks,” and the adult animated series “Star Trek: Lower Decks” (debuting later this year). Nickelodeon is also prepping an animated “Star Trek” kids series. All Access announced last year that it was developing a series centered on Michelle Yeoh’s character from Discovery.
At this point, there s no information about when Star Trek: Strange new Worlds will arrive or any other details regarding the new series
