Abrams and Justin Lin urging the studio to drop the lawsuit, it continued, but it’s now settled.

bryan fuller star trek discovery

A little over a month ago, Bryan Fuller stepped down as showrunner on CBS’s upcoming Star Trek: Discovery series, resulting in the internet making a sound akin to a balloon slowly deflating. After all, Star Trek has seen its ups and its downs, but surely it would’ve flourished under the watchful eye of the genius behind Hannibal and Pushing Daisies! Without him at the helm, an exclamation point became a question mark. The silver lining was that Fuller would remain on board as an executive producer, allowing him “to remain actively involved albeit not on the day-to-day production level as originally envisioned.”

Well, so much for that. In a new interview, Fuller has essentially confirmed that we won’t be working on Star Trek: Discovery at all.

star trek discovery characters

Yesterday, Star Trek: Discovery encountered its biggest speed bump yet when Bryan Fuller stepped down as showrunner, leaving Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts in command of the bridge. Although Fuller will still be involved, this felt like a low blow for Star Trek fans. After all, much of the appeal of the new series seemed from Fuller, a Trek veteran and the creator beloved shows like Hannibal and Pushing Daisies, being the one to steer this particular ship. Berg and Harberts are in an unfortunate position – they may have Fuller’s blessing, but one of the most high-strung fan bases in existence is going to watch and judge their every decision.
