March 12, 2021 - Paramount+, the new streaming service from ViacomCBS, today announced five new cast members joined the upcoming Original Series STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS.

A teaser video featuring the series' cast was also released today, announcing that production on the series is officially underway in Toronto, Canada.

"In a career, there is never enough work that is pure joy. I feel that my friend Alex Kurtzman along with David Stapf at CBS Studios and Julie McNamara at Paramount+ have given me just that by letting me haunt the stock rooms of my favorite candy store and I am grateful," said Akiva Goldsman, co-showrunner and executive producer of STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS. "With a hell of a cast and undying love for the original series, we boldly go."

"I'm incredibly grateful to be working alongside Akiva and our brilliant, multi-faceted cast to help bring the adventures of the Starship Enterprise to new life," said Henry Alonso Myers, co-showrunner and executive producer of STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS. "For someone who's been dreaming of spaceships and alien worlds since I was little, this show is a dream come true."

Babs Olusanmokun's notable television credits include his roles in Netflix's "Black Mirror," Marvel's "The Defenders," HBO's Emmy-winning miniseries "The Night Of" and History's 2016 remake of the miniseries "Roots." His film credits include the upcoming and highly anticipated "Dune" and "Wrath of Man."

Christina Chong can currently be seen in the live-action adaption of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon, "Tom and Jerry" and in The CW's "Bulletproof." Chong's other television credits include "Black Mirror," "Doctor Who," the BBC's "Ill Behaviour," the ABC event mini-series "Of Kings and Prophets," the hit BBC series "Line of Duty," SYFY's "Dominion," "Halo: Nightfall" and Fox's event `mini-series "24: Live Another Day." Film credits include "Christmas Eve," opposite Patrick Stewart, and "Johnny English: Reborn."

Celia Rose Gooding starred as Frankie Healy in "Jagged Little Pill," a musical inspired by Alanis Morissette's award-winning album, until the Broadway shutdown in 2020, and received a 2020 Tony Award nomination for Best Featured Actress in a Musical for her work.

The series will feature fan favorites from season two of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY, Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock.
