The executive producer behind CBS All Access’ ‘Star Trek: Discovery,’ Alex Kurtzman renewed his deal with CBS Television Studios. Kurtzman just signed a five-year extension with the studio that will keep him through 2023 wth sources saying the deal will earn him around $5 million per year. Not bad for someone whose contract was supposed to be up this year.

Moving forward, Kurtzman will serve as the only showrunner for ‘Star Trek: Discovery.’ If was reported earlier that he took over showrunner duties for Aaron Harberts and Gretchen Berg, who were recently let go from the series. Kurtzman also plans to expand the ‘Trek’ franchise by developing new series, miniseries and other content, including animation.

ST has become overtly PC. It now has little interest for me.

There are rumors that Patrick Stewart could return as Captain Picard.

It's much more overt.

True, but the day when it became overtly PC was September 8, 1966, when the first episode aired. Star Trek was always a liberal series, from day one, it isn't new, it has always been something that one had to overlook if one wanted to enjoy the good things about it, such as the characters and the storytelling.

More overt than an entire movie being devoted to 'save the whales'? More overt than the TNG episode 'Outcasts'?

It's always been overtly liberal but the Overton window has been moved since 1966 so what was overtly liberal then might pass for "conservative" now.

TNG was overt because Roddenberry no longer felt it necessary to hold back. He did somewhat on TOS.
