In July Star Trek: Strange New Worlds star Anson Mount announced the main unit production wrapped for the first season but he noted at the time they would return in the fall for pickup shots. That work is now down and the man who plays Captain Pike has a message for fans.
Mount says the fans made this happen
After appearing in season two of Star Trek: Discovery there was a clamor from many fans including a popular online petition, wanting to see more of the USS Enterprise with Captain Pike (Anson Mount), Spock (Ethan Peck), and Number One (Rebecca Romijn). And in 2020 Strange New Worlds was announced as the next live-action Star Trek show, going into production in February of this year. In his season wrap video (also available on startrek.com), Anson Mount offered his thanks, saying this all wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for the fans.
As for a release date, we will still have to wait. Mount says that it will arrive “sometime next year.”
More from the cast
On October 1st Jess Bush (who was recently revealed to be playing Nurse Christine Chappel) posted a picture of herself and Ethan Peck (still in his Spock makeup) on Instagram. Her message thanked the “freakin stellar crew and cast who made the last 8 months incredibly special and thrilling and challenging and wonderful and warm.”
