CBS has gone ahead with plans for a new series to star Michelle Yeoh as former Mirror World empress and now Captain Philippa Georgio – of Starfleet’s black ops division, Section 31.
CBS All Access has ordered two seasons of Star Trek: Lower Decks – an animated series from the Emmy-winning mind behind Rick and Morty, Mike McMahan.
The series will follow the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships.
At the Star Trek Las Vegas Convention 2018, CBS All Access’ Star Trek overlord, Alex Kurtzman introduced the decision on what Trek series to make next by calling on a very special guest – Sir Patrick Stewart.
Yes, the next Trek series will be a Jean-Luc Picard series (check out the announcement video below).
No other details were announced, but Kurtzman and Sir Patrick have issued statements (also below).
The Mummy – the first entry in what Universal Pictures is calling Dark Universe – gives the new universe a pretty shaky start.
Despite Alex Kurtzman showing some skill at juggling character and plot arcs, and keeping things moving forward at a good pace, he can’t overcome the clunky script (six writers involved at story and script levels), lack of genuinely witty banter and a horrendous misuse of Tom Cruise.
The Mummy is the first in what Universal hopes to build into a universe based on the studio’s classic monsters.
Nick Morton (Tom Cruise) is killed in a plane crash but wakes up in the morgue seemingly unscathed. He learns that he has been marked by the ultimate evil.
And you thought Tom Cruise had it tough in those Mission: Impossible movies!
The Mummy opens on June 9, 2017. Check out the rollercoaster of a trailer after the break.
She’s real. Oh, yes. She’s real. And Tom Cruise will just have to deal with that…

Fox’s Sleepy Hollow (Mondays, 9/8C) is a show that blends Hawthorne, Rip Van Winkle and Revelations within a flexible cop show/semi-procedural format. It’s goofy, weird, scary and oddly compelling in equal measures.
Executive Producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci spoke with members of the press/bloggers earlier this week to tease the series and explain how its unique mix of elements came about.
