Star Trek's upcoming spin-off series focusing on Captain Jean-Luc Picard is coming together, as more stars of some cult favourites have been added to the cast.
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story veteran Isa Briones has signed up for the Picard spinoff as well. CBS All Access is keeping all off their roles under wraps for now (via Deadline).
Previously, it was reported by TVLine that the currently-unnamed show added Santiago Cabrera and Michelle Hurd as series regulars.
What characters the pair will play is unknown, as is pretty much everything else about the series, except that Sir Patrick Stewart is returning to his iconic role as the best Starship Captain.
Stewart's The Next Generation co-star Jonathan Frakes will direct some episodes, while one of Discovery's directors, Hanelle Culpepper, will helm the first two episodes, making her the first woman in the show's 50+ year history to direct the launch of a Trek instalment.
The Picard series (probably) won't be a one-and-done thing either, as Stewart recently predicted that it could run for at least three seasons.
"Oh lord, we are set up for possibly three years of this show, so if there is a film, it's a long way off," he said.
