Paul Wesley is joining the cast of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
Strange New Worlds follows Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount), Science Officer Spock (Ethan Peck), and Number One (Rebecca Romijn/Una Chin-Riley) as they explore new worlds around the galaxy. Their adventures predate Captain Kirk’s ever stepping foot aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise.
This is pretty exciting news because it’s like Strange New Worlds is forming its own Justice League. James Kirk, Christopher Pike, AND Science Officer Spock working on the same star ship? Sign me up. No wonder Paramount is renewing the show for a season 2 before the start of season 1.
What do you guys think of the casting? Are you excited to see Kirk, Pike, and Spock discover new worlds?
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is showrun by Akiva Goldsman and Henry Alonso Myers with the pair exec producing alongside Alex Kurtzman, Jenny Lumet, Heather Kadin, Frank Siracusa, John Weber, Rod Roddenberry, Trevor Roth, and Aaron Baiers.
