Michelle Yeoh In Talks to Star in CBS All Access ‘Star Trek’ Spin Off


Deadline confirms, CBS is expanding their Trekverse franchise. 

Michelle Yeoh (Crazy Rich Asians) is currently on negotiations to star in a Star Trek Discovery stand-alone series for CBS All Access.

Yeoh will reprise her role as Captain Emperor Georgiou.

There is a natural momentum here as Yeoh’s once Captain Philippa Georgiou is already set to return to Discovery in Season 2 after leaping off into the final frontier at the end of Season 1. Still in the early planning stages, the spinoff looks likely to focus on a continuation of her Discovery Season 2 adventures in Starfleet’s Section 31 division. The semi-secret and autonomous organization has been a part of Trek lore since it was first introduced in the 1990s on the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series.
