Two Characters to Exit “Star Trek: Discovery” at the End of Season 2

Anson Mount and Rebecca Romijn in "Star Trek: Discovery"

Get ready to say goodbye to two Trekverse characters.

According to multiple reports, Star Trek: Discovery is slimming down at the end of Season Two with both Anson Mount and Rebecca Romijn set to exit the series. 

Mount, who plays Captain Christopher Pike and Romijn, who plays Pike’s shipmate Number One both joined the CBS All Access drama at the beginning of the season, will leave it at its end. According to Deadline, the actors’ exit comes as no surprise as the tow had inked one-year deals and contracted for Season 2 arcs.

Star Trek: Discovery is currently nine episodes into its second season with five more to go. It was for an additional and third season just last month with co-executive producer Michelle Paradise joining Alex Kurtzman as co-showrunner.

New episodes of Star Trek: Discovery debut every Thursday via CBS All Access.
