Meerdere (mini) series in ontwikkeling!
This morning CBS announced they have extended Star Trek: Discovery executive producer Alex Kurtzman’s agreement with an exclusive deal through to 2023. The new deal with Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout production company will include Kurtzman, who just took over as Discovery’s showrunner, supervising what CBS is calling an expansion of the Star Trek franchise for television.

According to CBS, Kurtzman will be developing new Star Trek series, mini-series and other content opportunities, including animation. In addition to Star Trek, Kurtzman and an expanded Secret Hideout under president Heather Kadin will develop new, original series across the full spectrum of broadcast, cable and streaming platforms.

The official announcement did not go into detail on what possible additional Star Trek content is in the works, but Variety reports some of the potential projects include the following:

- A series set at Starfleet Academy from creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz. The duo most recently developed the CW’s reboot of Dynasty and previously created shows like Gossip Girl and Hulu and Marvel’s Runaways.
- A limited series whose plot details are being kept under wraps.
- A limited series based around the “Wrath of Khan” story. Khan’s full name is Khan Noonien Singh. He was famously portrayed by Ricardo Montalbán in both the original series episode “Space Seed” and again in the film Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan. Benedict Cumberbatch then played the character in the 2013 film Star Trek Into Darkness.
- An animated series whose plot details are being kept under wraps.

An even more intriguing hint on what is in development comes from The Hollywood Reporter, with the unconfirmed report that there are “rumblings” which are “heating up” about a new Star Trek series “featuring Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Captain Jean-Luc Picard.” According to THR, Akiva Goldsman, who was reported to have exited Star Trek: Discovery at the end of season one, is attached to the Sir Patrick Stewart project. ... o-oversee/

Eindelijk maken ze van Star Trek een franchise zoals het hoort en als we een nieuwe serie met Captain Picard te zien krijgen is dat altijd mooi meegenomen!
