Does Kirk’s arrival mean Pike’s S02 departure? mount replies


With just over two weeks to go until the release of Paramount+ Anson Mount Rebeca Romijn & ethan peck-protagonist Star Trek: Strange New Worlds embarks on its mission to boldly go where humanity has never gone before, there is still a huge question mark surrounding the future of the series (especially now that we know it will return for a second season). With the news that Paul Wesley (the vampires’ diaries) would be joining the cast with season 2, fans were concerned that the countdown had already begun for Mount’s Pike to leave the series and Wesley’s Kirk to take over. Adding to that concern is the fact that it’s too early to tell when in Kirk’s life we’ll get a crossover with season two. So should fans start mourning the loss of Pike now, or is it too much ado about nothing right now? Mount sought to provide as much clarity as possible (considering the show has yet to premiere) during a recent interview with cinema mix.

“We wanted to do a real prequel, PREQUEL, to the original series, and that’s written in the Pike years. But, as you know, in the world of television scripts, a season doesn’t necessarily correspond to a year. As we know, going into the show, there really is… I’m not sure we’ve really demarcated how much time goes between seasons. So, I don’t know,” Mount explained (while also sounding like he was making sure to stay away from spoilers). “We’ll see where it ends. But, yeah, no, that would be a very different show.” So with Paramount+ Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Scheduled to take off on May 5, here’s a look at the official trailer followed by a look back at the previously released teaser trailer:

STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS is based on the years when Captain Christopher Pike manned the helm of the USS Enterprise.
