The Paramount+ series “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” will welcome the famous Captain Kirk, but not before season 2. Paul Wesley will play him. An announcement was made with a first image.
A new team for the series star trek
Generally, when a new series starts, there is always the fear that it will not be renewed after its first season. But for a few lucky programs, things are quite different. This is the case of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds one season 2 has already been ordered by Paramount+even before the premiere aired.
Scheduled for May 5 in the United States, the series will follow the crew of the USS Enterprise. But long before James Tiberius Kirk was its captain. Thus, the adventure will be carried by Captain Christopher Pike. With his team, he will explore new worlds in the galaxy. It was Anson Mount who was hired to play Pike, while Rebecca Romijn will play Una Chin-Riley, the Enterprise’s “Number One” officer. At last, Spock then the scientific officer of the Enterprise will be interpreted by Ethan Peck.
Captain Kirk not before season 2
No Captain Kirk so in the first season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds. A daring choice gave the popularity of the character. But don’t panic, the hero will be there… For season 2! This was announced by Paramount+ on Twitter by posting the first photo. The opportunity then to discover that the role will return to Paul Wesley. An actor we know well since he played Stefan Salvatore in Vampire Diaries (2009-2017).
With this first image, we find him in uniform in the famous armchair of the USS Enterprise. While we were told that the series would take place ten years before Kirk became Captain, should we expect a good time from the second season? In any case, we hope that the choice of Paul Wesley will be the right one. Remember that the actor will arrive after the very famous incarnation of William Shatner in the first series. Subsequently, we saw him on the big screen as Chris Pine.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will begin May 5 on Paramount+. There is currently no broadcast planned in France.
