Star Trek: Discovery Loses Showrunner

With so much excitement surrounding Star Trek’s return to the small screen, fans may now have a few concerns with the news that showrunner Bryan Fuller has stepped down.

Variety reports that Fuller has left the CBS All Access show due to too many other commitments, including American Gods and a reboot of Amazing Stories for NBC. Fuller will remain on the show as an executive producer and has already delivered scripts for the first two episodes and an over-arcing series plan. Fellow exec producers Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts will take over his other responsibilities moving forward.

The change of personnel isn’t likely to hinder the show too much moving forward, but having already been delayed until May 2017 (originally it was meant to broadcast in January), this will certainly add more pressure, that and the main female casting is boldly going nowhere.

As part of a year of celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise, the new show was announced, much to the delight of the millions of fans around the world. The new show will see an all new cast of characters take to the stars in an unexplored era in the Trek prime universe, some ten years before the events of the original series.

The premiere will air on CBS, with the rest of the series only available on CBS All Access.
