Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn and Ethan Peck to star in series set prior to the USS Enterprise.
A new Star Trek prequel Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has been given a series order by CBS All Access.
The series stars Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock. It will follow Pike, Spock, and Number One in the decade before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise.
“Fans fell in love with Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn and Ethan Peck’s portrayals of these iconic characters when they were first introduced on Star Trek: Discovery last season,” said Julie McNamara, executive vice president and head of programming at CBS All Access. “This new series will be a perfect complement to the franchise, bringing a whole new perspective and series of adventures to Star Trek.”
The series will be produced by CBS Television Studios -it isn’t clear if it will air in Australia on 10 All Access or elsewhere.
