Anson Mount, Ethan Peck and Rebecca Romijn will reprise their roles from Star Trek: Discovery's second season. Mount will return as Pike, Peck as Lt. Spock and Romijn as Number One. The series will be set shortly after the events of Discovery's second season, about eight years before the events of the original Star Trek series.
Work on Strange New Worlds is already underway, but full production will of course have to wait on the end of the current coronavirus pandemic.
The series is no less than the fifth Star Trek project put into development by CBS All Access since the franchise's return to television in 2017. Strange New Worlds follows Discovery, Picard, Lower Decks, Section 31 and an animated series aimed at younger viewers.
