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.
