CBS All Access Greenlights Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

The second season of Star Trek: Discovery reintroduced fans to Christopher Pike, the man who was captain of the Enterprise before James T. Kirk. Spock and Number One were also a big part of Discovery‘s second year. Now, thanks to fan demand, the classic crew of the Enterprise is getting their own series.

Via Entertainment Weekly, CBS All Access has ordered Star Trek: Strange New Worlds to series. Anson Mount, Ethan Peck, and Rebecca Romijn will reprise their respective roles as Pike, Spock, and Number One.

According to CBS All Access, the series will “follow the crew in the decade before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy.”

Akiva Goldsman wrote the series premiere for Strange New Worlds, from a story by himself,  Alex Kurtzman, and Jenny Lumet. All three will executive produce the new series alongside Henry Alonso Myers, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth.

With the arrival of a third live-action Star Trek series, CBS All Access has staked out three specific Trek eras. Strange New Worlds will tackle the classic era, Star Trek: Picard revisits the future of the TNG era, and Discovery season 3 will take place in the far future.

Mount, Peck, and Romijn also shot a video sharing the Strange New World news with fans. You can check it out below.
