What do you think? Are you excited to see season two of this Star Trek series?
I love the show. Can’t wait for many more seasons.
Strange New Worlds is a great show..hope to see many more seasons of it
Of the new bunch of Star Trek series (Discovery, Strange New Worlds, Lower Decks, Prodigy and Picard) Strange New Worlds and Lower Decks are much more enjoyable than the rest. Prodigy is also fine.
Strange New Worlds is definitely the best series, regarding story telling, production values, etc. But do not underestimate Lower Decks, which is mostly humorous and uses 2D animation for their story telling. It is fun.
So it is good news to hear that Strange New Worlds gets a second season. I certainly hope there will be many more after that one as well.
