Star Trek: Discovery lead Sonequa Martin-Green has been dropping some hints about the shows second season.
The first season ended with the USS Discovery coming face-to-face with a very famous ship. The USS Enterprise. Since that moment fans have been desperate for news as to whether the crew of the Enterprise will interact with Michael Burnham and the rest of the Discovery crew.
We know that Marvel’s Inhumans actor Anson Mount has been cast as Captain Pike. But what about his first officer, Spock?
Martin-Green was asked about whether her adoptive brother will appear:
“You know, Aaron Harberts, he said after the finale, on After Trek, that Season Two was going to be about that line between science and faith,” Martin-Green said. “He also said that there’s going to be a lot of family dynamic. It is the Enterprise in that shot. We all know who is on the Enterprise. You see Sarek and Burnham look at each other, and there you have it.”
She was also asked about the difficulties of setting a show between two branches of the franchise:
“Alex Kurtzman, who helped create the show with Bryan Fuller, who obviously worked very closely with JJ for his franchise of Star Trek films, said, ‘I know a lot of people are asking why he didn’t ever mention her,’ He was like, ‘Trust us. There will be an explanation.’” The Walking Dead actress recalled. “That’s what happens when you come into this time period where you’re couched between two iterations,” Martin-Green continued.
Star Trek: Discovery is currently filming its second season for release later this year via CBS All Access and Netflix.
Star Trek, one of the most iconic and influential global television franchises, returns to television 50 years after it first premiered with STAR TREK: DISCOVERY. The series will feature a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers. The series will premiere on the CBS Television Network with all subsequent episodes available on CBS All Access, the Network’s digital subscription video on demand and live streaming service, and will be distributed concurrently by CBS Studios International on Netflix in 188 countries and in Canada on Bell Media’s Space channel and OTT service CraveTV.
Star Trek: Discovery is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Alex Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout, Bryan Fuller’s Living Dead Guy Productions and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Bryan Fuller, Heather Kadin, Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts, Akiva Goldsman, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers.
