Yeoh may lead 'Star Trek Discovery' spin-off
Los Angeles: Crazy Rich Asians star Michelle Yeoh is in negotiations to play the lead role in the Star Trek Discovery spin-off. According to Deadline, the actor is in talks to continue her journey as Captain Emperor Georgiou for a standalone Star Trek series for CBS All Access.
Yeoh was the first actor cast in Star Trek: Discovery, the first new series in the franchise in years. The actor, who recurred in season one of Discovery, will return in season two as the new spin-off series would likely follow her
adventures in Starfleet's Section 31 division.
The potential spin-off is not the only new Star Trek project in the works, as it was announced this summer that Patrick Stewart will reprise his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in another CBS All Access series.
CBS All Access also recently handed out a two-season, straight-to-series animated comedy Star Trek: Lower Decks, from Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty) and Alex Kurtzman.
