Bryan Fuller has stepped down as the showrunner for Star Trek Discovery.

News filtering out from numerous sources suggest that CBS was at loggerheads with him over his work on Starz drama American Gods and Amazing Stories for NBC.

According to Variety, the show will continue the vision that he set when the series was first formed, but showrunning duties have been handed over to executive producers Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts. Writer-director Akiva Goldsman, meanwhile, is expected to join the Star Trek Discovery team in a “top creative role”, serving as a support for Berg and Harberts

Star Trek: Discovery premieres in May 2017.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
