Paramount Plus’ “Star Trek” universe chief Alex Kurtzman says

We have to think several years out. So we’re thinking about, you know, knowing that we’re going to want new shows on the air two or three years from now we have to start putting those now. So there’s a bunch of things in development that are now starting to take shape and we’re super excited about it.

As are we chief. As are we.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” will debut its first season on Paramount Plus on May 5.

This new series stars Anson Mount as Capt. Pike, Ethan Peck as Spock, and Rebecca Romijn as Una Chin-Riley.

They are aboard the Enterprise prior to the events of the original “Star Trek” series.

Kurtzman even shares upcoming projects.

He and his team are working on “Section 31” and another show he’s remaining secretive about.

But we note back in “Star Trek Day” fan event in September 2021, Kurtzman said he was “very excited” about the prospect of a “Starfleet Academy” TV series.

Apparently, it has been in development as early as June 2018.

Could that be the newest series they are working on?

Kurtzman is also quoted:

Four years ago, we made a promise to grow ‘Star Trek’ into something it had never been before, and thanks to the incredibly hard work done by our many talented showrunners, writers, and directors, along with the extraordinary support of CBS Studios and Paramount Plus, we’re keeping our word. Now our current shows are set up for the future as we work to build ‘Trek’s’ next phase of programming for years to come.

Make it so.
