Bryan Fuller kicked off Star Trek Discovery with a bang, but unfortunately left before the show’s second season. The executive producer’s departure was at first blamed on the time he needed to spend working on the Starz series American Gods. But before that, there were reportedly budgetary restraints resulting in creative clashing during the writing phase. That means fans only got so much of Fuller’s vision for this new era of adventures in the final frontier. But thanks to a recent interview, we have details on what Fuller would have done with the Mirror Universe on the series, which would have been drastically different from what ended up happening.

Spoilers for Star Trek: Discovery season 2 ahead.
The ending of Star Trek: Discovery season 2 boldly went where no Star Trek franchise had ever gone before – 930 years into its future, and past the farthest point explored on the timeline in the Next Generation era of Trek storytelling.

Content! It’s all about content! And if you’re already running out of things to watch at home, CBS All Access is here to help. The streaming subscription service was already offering up a free trial for 30 days, but since it looks like we’re going to be social distancing for at least another month, they’ve extended the trial period for another 30 days. That means you can get a 60-day CBS All Access free trial right now, giving you plenty of time to binge The Twilight Zone reboot and more. Read More »
The first season of Star Trek: Picard was as frustratingly mixed as any first Trek season. As thrilling as it was to see Jean-Luc Picard return, its great ideas and story elements are tantalising moments amid a show that’s merely pretty good. The central story is solid. It’s the best-shot Star Trek show to date, shying away from shiny sci-fi precision in favour of earthy tones and messy spills of light. The inevitable moments of fan service mostly serve the story. And while its structure and texture is wildly different to any prior Treks, it still finds time to explore big ideas like the rest of them.
So by way of organisation, here are five things we loved about the season, and three we didn’t (and by “we,” I mean “me”).

When CBS All Access launched in the fall of 2014, it was created as a way for audiences to access libraries of current and old shows from CBS. Eventually, it expanded to include original programming like Star Trek: Discovery, the reboot of The Twilight Zone, and The Good Fight. Despite having a limited selection of library titles and original programming, the service has racked up over 4 million subscribers as of spring last year. But CBS All Access is about to get a makeover.
The newly merged ViacomCBS is considering combining the CBS All Access streaming service with a slew of Viacom’s content creators in order to launch a new streaming service. The yet-to-be-named (or officially announced) ViacomCBS streaming service would merge everything available on CBS All Access with more assets from the likes of cable channels like Nickelodeon, BET, MTV, and Comedy Central, the streaming channel Pluto TV, and the film library of Paramount Pictures.
