‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2 Trailer and Photos Reveal the New Spock and Number One
Star Trek: Discovery won’t be back until next January, but that didn’t hold CBS All Access back from dropping a new trailer, photos, and revealing the official premiere date this past weekend.
The first trailer for the second season of Discovery debuted at New York Comic-Con on Saturday. The new footage teases plenty of action to come, but the biggest reveal came at the end: meet the new young Spock! Ethan Peck takes over as the new Vulcan/human hybrid, and the trailer gave us our first look at him. In case you need a closer look, there’s a new official photo of Spock in all his hairy glory:
About that facial hair though… did Spock just forget his razor? Do they still recognize No Shave November in the future? Or is there some meaningful significance to all that scruff? It could be related to the Van Dyke beard Leonard Nimoy’s Mirror Spock donned. We’ll have to spend the next three months speculating.
The new trailer also includes plenty of Michelle Yeoh’s evil Mirror Universe equivalent to her Philippa Georgiou, Sonequa Martin-Green’s Michael Burnham, her (and Spock’s) adoptive mother Amanda Greyson (Mia Kirshner), and a quick look at Rebecca Romijn’s Number One. You can get a better look at Romijn’s version of the character, originally played by Majel Barrett, in a new photo.
Star Trek: Discovery returns for Season 2 on January 17, 2019, but there’s still three more new mini-episodes to look forward to before then.
