Get ready to return to the Enterprise with Pike, Number One, Spock, and the rest of the crew with Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. The upcoming series will follow the adventures of the Enterprise’s original crew long before James T. Kirk was captain. Fans are eagerly counting down the days until the premiere - we are too! - so we’re rounding up everything we know about the series so far.
We know that Discovery alums Anson Mount, Rebecca Romjin, and Ethan Peck will be returning as Captain Pike, Number One, and Spock, respectively, and on Star Trek Day the rest of the amazing cast was announced. Celia Rose Gooding will play Uhura, Babs Olasanmokun will play Dr. M’Benga, and Jess Bush will play Christine Chapel; new characters on the bridge include Christina Chong as La'an Noonien-Singh, Melissa Navia as Erica Ortegas, and Bruce Horak as Hemmer.

Goldsman also serves as co-showrunner and executive producer along with Henry Alonso Meyers; other executive producers include Kurtzman, Lumet, Heather Kadin, Frank Siracusa, John Weber, Rod Roddenberry, Trevor Roth, and Aaron Baiers. Secret Hideout, CBS Studios, and Roddenberry Entertainment are producing the series.
At the 2022 TCAs, the official key art for Strange New Worlds was released. The poster features a character on horseback — could it be Pike? — as the Enterprise hovers overhead with the tagline “The frontier is waiting.” What does this mean for the plot of the series? We’ll have to wait and see!
