Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Premiere Locks Down Alex Kurtzman

Paramount+ Is Going Global And Star Trek: Discovery Leaves Netflix

While Star Trek: Discovery may not have been accessible to most fans thanks to it being locked behind CBS All Access, but it did seem to please a surprising majority of folks who did see it. With its second season confirmed, is production is right around the corner.

According to a new report from Variety, the CBS series has locked down executive producer Alex Kurtzman to direct the Season 2 premiere of the show, which is a huge get. Obviously, as an executive producer, the man already has a lot of weight on the show, but it’s nice to know he’ll be bringing his directing chops to the film.

While Kurtzman’s big-budget directorial effort last year, The Mummy, didn’t go over so hot (let’s be real, the movie sucked), a TV show like this is a perfect opportunity for him to develop his skills. Plus, given his involvement in the series already, and his involvement in writing the script for the J.J. Abrams rebooted film franchise, he has more than a passing familiarity with the series.

The new season is set to pick up where things left off — with the USS Discovery picking up a distress call from a Christopher Pike-commanded USS Enterprise. Hardcore fans, eat your hearts out.

“I think with Enterprise’s arrival in the finale we recognize that the audience has a lot of questions about our synchronicity with the original series, which really means or synchronicity with canon,” Kurtzman told the outlet. “So the promise of the Enterprise holds the answers to a lot of those questions, including Spock’s relationship with his half-sister who he’s never mentioned. Which does not necessarily mean you’re going to see Spock, just that we owe an answer to that question.”
