Veteran Star Trek actor and director Jonathan Frakes has confirmed something we have long suspected. That Spock will be appearing in the second season of Star Trek: Discovery.
Whilst appearing at a recent convention the star of Star Trek: The Next Generation let slip he is directing the second and tenth episodes of the upcoming season. That second episode will feature the recently confirmed Anson Mount (Marvel’s Inhumans) as Captain Pike. The episode will also feature a young Spock in flashback sequences.
Perhaps don’t prepare yourselves for a face off between Zachary Quinto and Sonequa Martin-Green just yet!
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.
