Michelle Yeoh, also known as Emperor/Captain/Lt. Georgiou in Star Trek: Discovery, has a spin-off show in the works at CBS All Access.
There was speculation about a Georgiou spin-off since last fall, but CBS officially announced the series today.
According to CBS, the show will focus on Georgiou and her role as a member of Starfleet’s Section 31 division, a shadow organization within the Federation.
There aren’t many details about the series so far, but Yeoh says she is excited to continue telling Star Trek stories.
“Being a part of this universe and this character specifically has been such a joy for me to play,” she says. “I can’t wait to see where it all goes—certainly I believe it will go ‘where no WOMAN has ever gone before!’”
Yeoh is also part of Star Trek: Discovery‘s second season, which premieres on CBS All Access this Thursday.
