Star Trek: Discovery season 2 adds Spock, unveils first trailer

The role was originally played by Majel Barrett Roddenberry.

Wilson Cruz, the actor who plays Dr. Hugh Culber, revealed that he will return to the show, though he was killed off last season.

The long-awaited first look at Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 has finally entered our orbit.

It's unknown how extensive Romijn's appearance will be in Season 2 of Discovery, which, according to information revealed at the panel, will follow Captain Pike taking command of the USS Discovery to investigate seven mysterious signals in space. These 10-15 minute long shorts will focus on specific characters from the show, with Sylvia Tilly, Harry Mudd and Saru being confirmed as having mini-episodes centered around them.

With original showrunner Bryan Fuller out, replacement showrunners Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts also gone, and Kurtzman now in, Star Trek: Discovery seems to be going all out for its second season to make up for the various changing of hands and the bumpy journey it's had from concept to execution to final product. "They'll also introduce audiences to new characters who may inhabit the larger world of Star Trek". At least, if this awesome looking trailer is anything to go by. Additionally, Tig Notaro will appear in a recurring role.

What's perhaps most striking about the trailer, however, is its tone, which is more upbeat and playful (much of it is set to Lenny Kravitz's "Fly Away") than how the first season was promoted. Season 2 will consist of 13 episodes and will see the search for Spock unfold. The show returns to CBS All Access in January and you can check out the brand-new San Diego Comic-Con trailer for Star Trek: Discovery below, provided by the Star Trek YouTube channel.
