Exclusive: ‘Star Trek: Section 31’ has already been renewed for a second season at CBS All Access!
Three weeks ago, we revealed that the first season will start production on May 4th in Canada. Today, we have learned that CBS is planning on shooting season 1 and 2 back-to-back. The show will be filming in CBS Stages, located in Mississauga, Ontario.
In this ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ spin-off, Michelle Yeoh will reprise her role of Philippa Georgiou, and the series will focus on her adventures as a member of Starfleet’s Section 31 division. ‘Discovery’ and ‘Short Treks’ writers Bo Yeon Kim and Erika Lippoldt will serve as co-showrunners. The duo also wrote the pilot.
Producer Alex Kurtzman gave a comment regarding the show last year:
“It occupies an area of the ‘Trek’ universe that’s never really been explored geographically. It has a new mythology to it, which is very interesting. And it puts Michelle’s character to the test in a lot of ways that ‘Discovery’ can’t. In some ways it will be her ‘Unforgiven,’ I would say.”
There is no release date for ‘Section 31’ as of now, but it will likely premiere after the third season of ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ (which has already been renewed for a fourth season as we previously reported).
