The first season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds was critically acclaimed, and fans eagerly awaited the next. Season 2 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has already wrapped filming.
In terms of what Season 2 will entail, the stars suggest that it will be similar to Season 1 but even more so. As Ethan Peck, who plays Spock, told Collider in an interview, co-showrunner Henry Alonso Myers likened Season 2 to Season 1 on steroids. “I think that’s probably the best way to describe it.”
Christina Chong, who plays La’an Noonien-Singh, agreed, “I agree. It takes everything to another level.” James T. Kirk will also be featured in the new season, presumably in the Prime Timeline this time around. In the first season finale of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Paul Wesley made his debut in the role.
I joked in an interview earlier this year that Season 1’s success was solely due to my 14 minutes of screen time in the finale. I’m excited because the Season 1 finale was obviously based on ‘Balance of Terror,’ which was an episode from the original series, and it was quite intense. So I’m excited for Season 2 because Kirk gets to let loose a little more than he did in Season 1.
As he put it, “When I had my meeting with Henry and Akiva, it was really just, ‘Don’t try to do a Shatner impression. Don’t take what’s been done and try to spin it your way.’ Basically, they entrusted me. So, I didn’t feel pressured to conform.
Obviously, you work within parameters, but it’s an alternative timeline, an alternative future, and there was no guidance other than, ‘just do your own thing.’ It’ll take a while, but eventually, Kirk will become that version. In other words, you should respect it, but do not copy it.”
The first season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is streaming now on Paramount+. Season 2 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is scheduled to premiere in 2023.
