Star Trek: Discovery Kicks Off Its Season 2 Journey At Comic-Con

Short Treks CBS All Access Orders Star Trek Discovery Spin-off

"We're going to meet the original Number One", he said, referencing the unnamed second-in-command who served under Captain Pike.

It's a genre-fan smorgasbord at Comic-Con Friday. According to the showrunner, you can thank the original Star Trek TV series for that. The second season consists of 13 episodes and will premiere sometime in 2019, with Trek alum Jonathan Frakes directing the second and 10th episodes while Kurtzman-who directed the Tom Cruise monster thriller The Mummy-directs the season premiere. There had been speculation that viewers could be meeting Spock after the events of the finale, when Captain Pike sent a distress call to the USS Discovery. There was a point a few years ago when Discovery was a show worth paying attention to, but I think at this point you're either in or you're out. Another one will focus on Aldis Hodge's Craft, and he will be the only human on board a deserted ship.

In addition to Martin-Green, Season 2 will include returning cast members Doug Jones (Saru), Shazad Latif (Ash Tyler), Anthony Rapp (Paul Stamets), and Mary Wiseman (Sylvia Tilly). "So much of what is happening over the course of season 2 is going to test [the characters] constantly".




The event at San Diego Comic-Con this afternoon revealed that Season 2 picks up where the last season left off, which was when the Discovery came nose-to-nose with the iconic USS Enterprise.

Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth are its executive producers.

Marvel's Inhumans star Anson Mount is playing the role of Captain Christopher Pike in Star Trek: Discovery. For example, Wilson Cruz is coming back as Chief Medical Officer Hugh Culber, even though he was killed during the first season. Kurtzman announced the plan for Star Trek: Short Treks at today's panel.
