THR reports that after the initial showrunners of Star Trek: Discovery, Aaron Harberts and Gretchen Berg, were fired due to budget issues and some complaints of reported staff mistreatment, Kurtzman was called to the captain's chair on this, and the new Star Trek projects.

"Heather, Aaron and I are thrilled to continue Secret Hideout's wonderful partnership with CBS Television Studios". Since then, the prospect of a Tarantino-directed Star Trek film has diminished, but according to The Hollywood Reporter's recent article regarding Discovery showrunner Alex Kurtzman's new CBS deal, Stewart may yet return.

"Star Trek: Discovery" showrunner Alex Kurtzman signed a five-year, $25 million deal to expand the CBS "Star Trek" franchise for television, according to a report in Variety. The duo most recently developed the CW's reboot of "Dynasty" and previously created shows like "Gossip Girl" and Hulu and Marvel's "Runaways".

David Stapf, the president of CBS Television Studios, commented on the deal extension: "There is a very short list of writer-producer-directors that every film and television studio wants to be associated with, and Alex and his Secret Hideout team are always at the top".

Star Trek: Discovery is now in production on season two for CBS All Access, with Kurtzman tapped to direct the premiere. "His talent, taste and ability to shepherd a successful project is unparalleled. Alex has done remarkable work for our Studio, dating back seven years to the launch of Hawaii Five-O, and we are thrilled that he, Heather and their team will be partnering with us for a long time to come". There are also two possible limited series, one based on the Wrath of Khan storyline, as well as an animated series with plot details kept under wraps.

Kurtzmann co-wrote the scripts for 2009's Star Trek and 2013's Star Trek Into Darkness. CBS TV Studios declined to confirm the Stewart project as sources say a deal is far from completed and may not happen despite the fact that the actor recently teased his potential return to the franchise. The undescribed animated series would represent the second Star Trek animated television project.

Are you excited to see the expansion of Star Trek? Though it was repeatedly delayed over the course of its production, it earned praise for being a grittier Star Trek show set in the Prime Timeline.
