During an interview with The New York Times, filmmaker and producer Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, Clarice) revealed that Paramount+ is developing a series centered on the Starfleet Academy.
Emmy-nominated Kurtzman has produced five shows in the Star Trek universe for Paramount+, including Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, the adult animated series Star Trek: Lower Decks, the upcoming Paramount/Nickelodeon animated series Star Trek: Prodigy, and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, debuting in 2022.
“I think we’re just getting started,” said Kurtzman about the ever-expanding Star Trek universe. “There’s just so much more to be had.”
It has not yet been confirmed if the Starfleet Academy project will be a live-action or animated series.
