Isaacs joins an already star-studded cast consisting of actors such as The Walking Dead‘s Sonequa Martin-Green and celebrated character actor Doug Jones (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy).
Star Trek: Discovery is slated to premiere in either late summer or fall of this year, with no definite start date confirmed at this time.
What do you think of Isaacs’ casting? Are you excited to see him in the Starfleet uniform in the captain’s chair?
