Paul Wesley will join the show’s second season, which is now in production in Toronto. The first season is scheduled to premiere May 5 on CTV Sci-Fi Channel and Crave.

Wesley is best known for starring in The Vampire Diaries for eight seasons, and he’s appeared in the series Tell Me a Story and the miniseries Medal of Honor. He also has an upcoming film, History of Evil, co-starring Stephanie Beatriz.

Montreal-born William Shatner famously originated the character of James T. Kirk in the 1960 series Star Trek and played him in seven films. Chris Pine portrayed Kirk in the newer Trek series.

Strange New Worlds follows Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) as he leads the U.S.S. Enterprise. It’s a spinoff of Star Trek: Discovery, which also streams on Crave along with several other Star Trek series.
