Star Trek fans can finally rejoice they are all set to witness good news!
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, a Star Trek: Discovery spin-off series, is coming to your TV screens this Spring. The new adventures of the USS Enterprise is all set before James T. Kirk set off on his famous five-year mission and beginning with Captain Christopher Pike in the lead.
Incidentally, Pike first appeared in the original series’ 1965 pilot, ‘The Cage,’ his comeback in Star Trek: Discovery‘s second season has grabbed eyeballs across the fandom earning him his own spin-off, with other veterans from the pilot Number One and Spock.
Well, below is the list of all the details we know so far about the upcoming series which is set to premiere on Paramount+ in May.
A recent HollywoodLife report suggests that the show is officially set to release in May 5, 2022 on Paramount Plus after Star Trek: Discovery season 4 and Star Trek: Picard season 2 have finished. The first season of the series is set to run for 10 episodes and will presumably run every Thursday.
Speaking of the cast and crew, the series was confirmed back in 2020 and so far we know the three main actors will return to reprise their roles.
Anson Mount is back as Captain Christopher Pike while Ethan Peck is returning as the pointy-eared Spock and Rebecca Romijn continues as the first officer/helmsperson Number One.
For the uninitiated, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds follows Captain Christopher Pike and the crew of the USS Enterprises exploring strange new worlds throughout the galaxy.
The series will reportedly bring back Pike, Spock, and Number One, which is set before Star Trek: The Original Series. Producer Henry Alonso Meyers joked that ‘The Cage’ (1965), aka the first pilot episode of The Original Series which stars the same main characters, could be considered to be the pilot for Strange New Worlds, making the series “the longest pilot-to-series pickup in the history of television.”
