CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery is making its second showrunner change.
Out are showrunners Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts, who originally took over the role at the helm of the drama from Bryan Fuller. Executive producer Alex Kurtzman, who has guided the franchise (and a few of its feature films), will take over as showrunner on season two. As part of the change, Kurtzman will now also oversee the Discovery writers’ room for season two.

“We’ve made some producer changes at Star Trek: Discovery,” said producer CBS TV Studios in a statement to Deadline. “The series continues under the creative vision and leadership of executive producer and co-creator Alex Kurtzman. Discovery remains on course for season two in 2019 with new and continuing stories that build on its successful premiere season.”
Sources said there were no creative problems on the show, but more of operational issues. It is possible for another showrunner to be recruited down the road.
