CBS All-Access shocked fans when they announced legendary actor Patrick Stewart would be returning to reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard on the streaming platform and now, a second live-action spinoff series seems to be in the works.
According to Deadline, Crazy Rich Aisans star Michelle Yeoh is currently in talks to star in a spin-off of Star Trek: Discovery featuring her character — Captain Georgiou. The character would receive her own series after being a major character in the debut season, as well as reprising the role in season two.
The series is in its early stages of planning but the spinoff looks likely to focus on a continuation of her Discovery Season 2 adventures in Starfleet’s Section 31 division. CBS has not responded to us yet after reaching out for a comment.
The Trekverse expansion by CBS already includes the recently announced half-hour adult animated comedy series Star Trek: Below Decks from the writers of Rick and Morty and the now-showing Star Trek: Short Treks.
