It’s official!

Star Trek Discovery’s Empress Georgiou is getting her own CBS All-Access spin-off. The show will detail her adventures with the secret Federation shadow organization called Section 31. Michelle Yeoh returns to play Georgiou in the new series. For fans of the series, Captain Georgiou had died in the present timeline by the Klingons, but the Mirror Universe Georgiou was brought back into the current timeline by Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin Green).

“I’m so excited to continue telling these rich Star Trek stories,” Yeoh said in a statement. “Being a part of this universe and this character specifically has been such a joy for me to play. I can’t wait to see where it all goes – certainly I believe it will go ‘where no WOMAN has ever gone before!’”

The show will be produced by Star Trek Discovery creator Alex Kurtzman, CBS Television Studios, and Roddenberry Entertainment. Discovery writers Bo Yeon Kim and Erika Lippoldt will serve as writers and co-executive producers for the series, alongside Aaron Baiers (Star Trek Discovery).

Kurtzman said in a different statement, “Michelle has shattered ceilings, broken boundaries, and astonished us with her grace and gravitas for decade. As a human, I adore her. As an actor, I revere her. Erika and Boey are remarkable, exciting writers who bring a fresh perspective to the world of Star Trek, and we’re all thrilled to explore the next wild chapter in the life of Captain Philippa Georgiou.”

We can’t wait to see what badass Georgiou does next!

Yeoh can be seen as Georgiou in the sophomore season of Star Trek Discovery, which premieres on January 17th on CBS All-Access.
