CBS All Access announced today that it will continue to “boldly go” on with the Star Trek universe by announcing the renewal of Star Trek Discovery for a third season.
Along with renewal was the announcement that Michelle Paradise has been made co-showrunner alongside Alex Kurtzman. Kurtzman will continue to oversee the entire expansion of the Star Trek universe for CBS All Access. Paradise, who joined Discovery mid-way through season two, will also be a Co-Executive Producer on the show and was formerly an Executive Producer for CW’s The Originals. Her reach extends across several networks as a writer for Rogue (Audience Network), Hart of Dixie (CW), and creator (as well as wrote for and starred in) of Exes and Ohs for MTV and Logo.
