When news broke a few months back that Bryan Fuller was stepping down as showrunner on Star Trek: Discovery, many fans had hopped he'd stay on as an executive producer.
But, unfortunately that's not the case and Fuller has now confirmed that he is no longer involved with the highly anticipated series. “I’m not involved in production, or postproduction, so I can only give them the material I’ve given them and hope that it is helpful for them,” Fuller told Newsweek in a recent interview. “I’m curious to see what they do with it.”
Having worked on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, Fuller had always hoped to see Star Trek return to TV. Fans were ecstatic to learn of his involvement with Star Trek: Discovery, but this past October he was replaced as showrunner by Gretchen Berg and Aaron Harberts.
Before departing the show, Fuller wrote the first two episodes and even plotted a season arc. He has since called the situation "bittersweet", but says "if they need me I will absolutely be there for them."
