CBS All Access announced that Star Trek: Discovery will return for a third season and that Michelle Paradise (one of the co-executive producers of the series) will join Alex Kurtzman as co-host.
Paradise is the fifth official showrunner for Discovery, following Bryan Fuller (who left the project), Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg (dismissed for budget litigation and complaints of abuse by several writers), and Alex Kurtzman (presenter and lead architect of Star Trek TV projects in the foreseeable future). Hopefully the show will finally enter a slightly more stable production phase in Season 3, after all its previous behind-the-scenes dramas.
"Michelle joined us in the middle of season two and energized the room with her fierce knowledge of hikingSays Kurtzman. "His understanding of the details of the character and the story, his dynamism and concentration have already become essential to ensure hiking legacy, and its new perspective always keeps us looking to the future. I'm proud to say that Michelle and I are officially running Star Trek: Discovery. "
Discovery is by no means the only Star Trek Television show in the works. CBS is already working on a series in which Sir Patrick Stewart will resume his iconic role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Its release is scheduled for 2019. A Discovery spin-offs are also planned, featuring the Mirror Universe iteration of Michelle Yeoh's captain, Philippa Georgiou. Also announced: Star Trek: lower decks, an animated series that will focus on the less important members of a Starfleet ship.
