With the news that Paul WesleyThe diary of vampires) was due to join the cast with Season 2, fans became concerned that the countdown had already begun for Mount’s Pike to leave the series and Wesley’s Kirk to take over. Adding to that concern is the fact that it’s way too early to know at what point in Kirk’s life we’ll have a crossover with the second season. So should fans now start mourning the loss of Pike, or is it all the fuss over nothing right now? Mount tried to provide as much clarity as possible (since the show hasn’t premiered yet) during a recent interview with Cinemablend.

So I don’t know,” explained Mount (while also sounding like he made sure to get away from it all). kept from spoilers). “We’ll see where it ends. But yeah, no, that would be a completely different show.” So with Paramount+’s Star Trek: Strange New Worlds slated to launch on May 5, here’s a look at the official trailer, followed by a look back at the previously released teaser trailer:
