Actor Anson Mount has confirmed via video post that filming has finally ended on the first season of “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds”, which was first announced back in May last year.

The series marks a return of old school ‘Trek’ with independent episodes and a more optimistic tone as it follows the crew of the USS Enterprise under the command of Captain Christopher Pike (Mount) in the years before Captain Kirk took over.

The show began pre-production, which in August and then began filming in late February in Ontario, with main production for the season ending on July 24th. A block of further fiming was then planned and it appears that it is now complete.

Along with its headsets, the series uses Mandalorian-style StageCraft technology with a 270-degree 70ft x 30-foot (21m x 9m) horseshoe-shaped LED volume powered by the Unreal Engine to create the planets visited in the series. The shooting also took place in New Mexico.

The series’ cast also includes Rebecca Romijn as number one, Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock, Jess Bush as nurse Christine Chapel, Christina Chong as La’an Noonien-Singh, Celia Rose Gooding as cadet Nyota Uhura, Melissa Navia as lieutenant Erica Ortegas, Babs Olusanmokun as Dr. M’Benga and Bruce Horak as Hemmer.

“Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” is expected to premiere exclusively on Paramount + around mid-2022.
