Michelle Yeoh may lead ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ spin-off

Los Angeles: “Crazy Rich Asians” star Michelle Yeoh is in negotiations for a spin-off series on her “Star Trek: Discovery” character.

CBS All Access has plans to grow its “Star Trek” franchise.

The actress is in talks with producers CBS Television Studios to see her character be spun-off into a series of her own for the subscription video on demand service. But representatives for CBS All Access and CBS TV Studios declined comment, according to hollywoodreporter.com.

Yeoh was the first actress cast in “Star Trek: Discovery”, the first new series in the franchise in years. The actress, who recurred in season one of “…Discovery”, will return in season two as the new spin off series would likely follow her adventures in Starfleet’s Section 31 division.
