It looks like Jonathan Frakes is truly on a roll when it comes to the CBS All Access shows. The Star Trek: Picard actor has just confirmed that he will direct at least one episode of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
Frakes recently spoke to SyFy Wire where he was asked if he would be involved in the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery spin-off. Interestingly, the Star Trek: The Next Generation actor didn't even hesitate to confirm the news.
"I've been asked to direct, and I'm looking forward to it very much," Frakes said. He then added that he truly enjoyed working with the lead stars Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn, and Ethan Peck from previous projects.
"I've had great experiences with all three of them. Anson and I worked through finding Captain Pike. And Ethan and I worked through finding who Spock was. And the mantle of Spock, in particular, was so complicated and so emotionally taxing and was such huge shoes to fill, and Ethan felt it," Frakes said. "Rebecca and I have a long relationship from back on The Librarians, and we have a fabulous working shorthand, so it will be great getting back to the floor with three old friends."
We're loving the idea that these four people will once again be working together in the future. Although the details on Strange New Worlds have not yet been revealed, we're already looking forward to what Frakes will come up with for the series.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has not yet been given an official release date. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.
