Discovery may be the latest iteration of Star Trek, but after that Season 1 distress signal to the Enterprise opened the portal to a universe of fan theories, you guessed right if you thought you were soon going to experience a time warp to TOS. There's also a tease that Mr. Spock could be appearing later in the season as well.
Wilson Cruz, the actor who plays Dr. Hugh Culber, revealed that he will return to the show, though he was killed off last season. Anticipation for Season 2 of Star Trek: Discovery is high, especially after some pretty interesting hints that were left. The new season will premiere sometime in 2019 on CBS All-Access; you can see the pics below of Sonequa Martin-Green as Michael Burnham and David Benjamin Tomlinson as the Saurian Linus. While the casting for this character has not been announced, the character of the original Number One will be played by Rebecca Romijn. It introduces Anson Mount's Captain Christopher Pike - Kirk's predecessor - in the flesh, who takes control of Discovery citing a new threat in the galaxy: a series of "red bursts" scattered across 30,000 light years. The four Short Treks episodes will roll out monthly beginning this fall, and will be stand-alone stories, each running approximately 10-15 minutes.

The long-awaited first look at Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 has finally entered our orbit.
Additional episodes include one focused on Underground's Aldis Hodge as Craft, a man stranded aboard a deserted ship, a deeper exploration of Saru's (Doug Jones) backstory as Starfleet's first Kelpian and Tilly's (Mary Wiseman) unlikely friendship aboard the U.S.S. Discovery. "So much of what is happening over the course of season 2 is going to test [the characters] constantly".
