Deadline Hollywood reports that CRAZY RICH ASIANS star Michelle Yeoh is in talks to star in another STAR TREK spinoff for CBS All Access, reprising her role as Captain Phillipa Georgiou. This character was part of last season’s STAR TREK DISCOVERY series.
There is a natural momentum here as Yeoh’s once Captain Philippa Georgiou is already set to return to Discovery in Season 2 after leaping off into the final frontier at the end of Season 1. Still in the early planning stages, the spinoff looks likely to focus on a continuation of her Discovery Season 2 adventures in Starfleet’s Section 31 division. The semi-secret and autonomous organization has been a part of Trek lore since it was first introduced in the 1990s on the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine series.
In the meantime, Yeoh will reprise her Georgiou character in season two of DISCOVERY, as indicated by an Instagram photo that was posted of Georgiou in her Section 31 uniform.
