No word on her status on The Walking Dead. So far sources are stating that she will remain on the show for the meantime. Duh, duh, duh someone maybe getting killed off, no spoilers or anything.

Star Trek: Discovery takes place about a decade before the original Star Trek and roughly a hundred years after Earth made first contact with the Klingon species (as depicted in the Star Trek: Enterprise pilot, “Broken Bow”). At this point in Trek history, the Federation and the Klingon Empire should be facing an uneasy cold war.

Star Trek: Discovery will make it’s premiere on CBS then move to their streaming service, CBS All Access in May 2017. The series will also be distributed by Netflix in 188 countries and by Bell Media in Canada.
