One of Star Trek: Discovery’s biggest Season 2 mysteries has been answered. Following an Enterprise-ing tease, the CBS All-Access drama has confirmed Hell on Wheels and Inhumans star Anson Mount will captain Trek’s most famous vessel in a fan-favorite role.
It looks like Star Trek isn’t the only sci-fi icon finding new life on CBS All Access. Network heads confirm that a Twilight Zone reboot is in development for the streaming branch, as produced by Get Out director and Key & Peele favorite Jordan Peele.
CBS is keeping Star Trek: Discovery under a curious amount of spoiler scrutiny, and we may know why. Franchise veteran Jonathan Frakes let slip a major return for the new series that may have you trimming a goatee in anticipation.
The Star Trek franchise has undergone a fascinating design overhaul, as fifty years of technology and storytelling change the way we portray The Federation’s Kirk-era adventures. The Klingons too have been updated repeatedly, to which Star Trek: Discovery bosses explain the latest change.
We’ve waited patiently for months, and CBS is finally rewarding us with a discovery. Star Trek: Discovery, that is, as the network at last confirms a September premiere date for the new TV iteration, along with word of a divided run.
Star Trek: Discovery has been making plenty of progress with casting and production, though fans are still a bit unnerved by the change in schedule from January, to May, to fall. Even now, CBS brass won’t nail down a fall premiere window, saying “we’re not tied to any specific release date.”
