CBS Is Developing Multiple STAR TREK Shows With Alex Kurtzman Overseeing The Universe

We recently found out that Alex Kurtzman would be taking over as the sole showrunner of Star Trek: Discover, but now a new report reveals the writer will have an even larger role in CBS’s expanding Star Trek universe.

According to Variety, Kurtzman has signed a five-year deal with the network to supervise the expansion. This role will see him oversee the development of new series and other content set within the Star Trek universe.

Along with this news, Variety has received word on four potential series that Kurtzman would be overseeing. The first is said to come from the showrunners of Hulu and Marvel's Runaways, Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz, and will take place at Starfleet Academy.

Meanwhile, there are two other projects that are described as mini-series. There are no details available on one of them, but the other is supposedly based around the iconic Wrath of Khan story. There is also a mysterious animated series in the works.

There is no word on how far along these four series are in the development process, or on the chances of them getting the greenlight, but from the sound of things they are just the first of what CBS hopes will be many more new Trek shows.
