New details, trailer from "Star Trek: Discovery" Season 2

Star Trek Discovery Sonequa Martin-Green

CBS All Access has released the first Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 trailer, offering a first look at the highly anticipated new season of the Trek series.

Wilson Cruz, the actor who plays Dr. Hugh Culber, revealed that he will return to the show, though he was killed off last season.

Following the trailer unveiling, Star Trek: Discovery executive producer, co-creator, and now new showrunner Alex Kurtzman confirmed that the second season of the series will introduce everyone's favorite half-Vulcan, half-human dude, Spock.

It's unknown how extensive Romijn's appearance will be in Season 2 of Discovery, which, according to information revealed at the panel, will follow Captain Pike taking command of the USS Discovery to investigate seven mysterious signals in space. Watch the trailer for Season 2 below. The change could be partly due to a behind-the-scene shakeup on show, since Alex Kurtzman has taken over as showrunner from Aaron Harberts and Gretchen J. Berg on the new season.

Rolling out on CBS All Access on a monthly basis, each of the four "Short Treks" episodes will be approximately 10-15 minutes long, and dig deeper into specific characters and themes explored on "Discovery". Additional episodes include a deep dive into Saru's (Doug Jones) backstory as the first Kelpien to join Starfleet, and Tilly's (Mary Wiseman) journey aboard the U.S.S. Discovery and her friendship with an unlikely partner.

The event at San Diego Comic-Con this afternoon revealed that Season 2 picks up where the last season left off, which was when the Discovery came nose-to-nose with the iconic USS Enterprise. Anson Mount was cast earlier this year to play Pike.

The preview also gave a first look at Tig Notaro as Denise Reno, Chief Engineer of the Federation ship Hiawatha.
