Yesterday we had some big news coming out of the Star Trek universe! According to Deadline, fan-favorite Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) will be getting her own spin-off series. Yes, you read that correctly! The series is in early development so details are scarce but we do know a few things.
Bo Yeon Kim and Erika Lippoldt are signed on to executive produce the new Trek-venture for CBS All Access. Apparently the series will focus on Mirror Universe Georgiou’s adventures in Starfleet’s Section 31 division after the events of Star Trek: Discovery season 2. And while Yeoh is currently the only one attached to the project, the report believes this will be an ensemble piece. Sonequa Martin-Green as a series regular anyone?
Yeoh expressed her joy in continuing to play the character. “I’m so excited to continue telling these rich ‘Star Trek’ stories,” she said. “Being a part of this Universe and this character specifically has been such a joy for me to play. I can’t wait to see where it all goes – certainly I believe it will go ‘where no WOMAN has ever gone before!'” And we’re right there with her! Mirror Georgiou in the Prime Universe is sure to be filled with exciting new possibilities! And the character is just too intriguing not to explore. Long may she reign.
