So wwwwaaaayyyy back in June, when the first rumors of other Trek shows beyond Discovery started to surface, we got this bit of info about what the new shows would be
- A series set at Starfleet Academy from creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz. The duo most recently developed the CW’s reboot of “Dynasty” and previously created shows like “Gossip Girl” and Hulu and Marvel’s “Runaways.”
- A limited series whose plot details are being kept under wraps.
- A limited series based around the “Wrath of Khan” story. Khan’s full name is Khan Noonien Singh. He was famously portrayed by Ricardo Montalbán in both the original series episode “Space Seed” and again in the film “Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan.” Benedict Cumberbatch then played the character in the 2013 film “Star Trek Into Darkness.”
- An animated series whose plot details are being kept under wraps.
At the same time as the original rumor announcement, this came out(linked to in the first link)
There are no specifics about any of the projects at the moment though there is talk that one of the first shows would be an eight-episode limited series spinoff. Kurtzman and Co. may reveal some details at the upcoming Comic-Com convention.
This was seemingly confirmed later in October when CBS trademarked 6 new Trek shows
Now back in December, Alex Kurtzman said this
Only Stewart has been cast in the spin-off so far, Kurtzman added. “The writers’ room has broken about eight episodes and we’re moving quickly, and I couldn’t be more excited about it,”
Only the Picard and Khan series were described as limited, and one of them was described as being 8 episodes, and we know from what Nicholas Meyer has said that Khan was only three episodes, and we have this same "8 episodes" thing being mentioned by Kurtzman, and the Picard show is one of the first things coming out as originally rumored.
Given that the other rumored shows turned out to be true, its possible that this Picard show may be a rather short thing after all.
