Paramount has revealed production on the next Star Trek television series, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, is now underway in Toronto. What’s more is they revealed additional casting with Babs Olusanmokun (Dune), Christina Chong (Black Mirror), Celia Rose Gooding (Jagged Little Pill), Jess Bush (Skinford) and Melissa Navia (Billions) joining the series. Watch the announcement teaser below…
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds features Anson Mount, Ethan Peck and Rebecca Romijn reprising their Star Trek: Disocvery roles as Captain Christopher Pike, Spock and Number One respectively “in the years before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy.”
“In a career, there is never enough work that is pure joy. I feel that my friend Alex Kurtzman along with David Stapf at CBS Studios and Julie McNamara at Paramount+ have given me just that by letting me haunt the stock rooms of my favorite candy store and I am grateful,” said Avika Goldsman, co-showrunner and EP. “With a hell of a cast and undying love for the original series, we boldly go.”
“I’m incredibly grateful to be working alongside Akiva and our brilliant, multi-faceted cast to help bring the adventures of the Starship Enterprise to new life,” said Myers, co-showrunner and EP. “For someone who’s been dreaming of spaceships and alien worlds since I was little, this show is a dream come true.”
The premiere for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds was written by Goldsman from a story by Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet, all of whom are executive producers on Star Trek: Picard.
