STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS
Thurs 15 June Paramount+
Arguably the best part of the Star Trek franchise, Strange New Worlds gets a welcome second season. We’re warped back to the pre- Kirk era, where Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) has a firm hand on the Starship Enterprise’s controls. Accompanied by Number One, Una Chin-Riley (Rebecca Romijn) and Vulcan Science Officer Spock (Ethan Peck) he and the crew seek out new life and new civilizations, boldly going where (almost) no man has gone before.
With an episodic storytelling approach, inspired by The Original Series, this is a more relaxed and character driven affair. Details of the new season are scare, but expect fan favourites, Easter eggs and maybe a cheeky crossover.

It’s the final season… and we’ll be sorry to see this John Krasinski (The US Office, A Quiet Place) go. Not just because we’ll no longer be able to call it ‘Dunder Mifflin world Police’ (still a splendid joke), but because it’s turned out to be a rather tightly-orchestrated espionage thriller.
Unsurprisingly, our titular protagonist is on his most dangerous mission yet. Tasked with fighting internal corruption, he uncovers a series of suspicious black ops which could expose the vulnerability of the nation. But our hero’s belief in the system he has always fought to protect comes into question, as the full extent of the rot becomes clear. Explosive stuff.
