Seeing that Star Trek: Discovery\u2019s protagonist Michael Burnham is the adopted sister of Spock, it was no mystery that the character of Spock himself would cast a shadow over the series. Anyone who wants to see him doesn\u2019t have to wait too long, though, since they\u2019re bringing him in for Season 2. News has it that the show has finally cast someone in the role.\r\n\r\nExecutive Producer Alex Kurtzman confirms that Ethan Peck has been cast as Spock. He says in a statement (via ComicBook):\r\n\r\n\u201cThrough 52 years of television and film, a parallel universe and a mirror universe, Mr. Spock remains the only member of the original bridge crew to span every era of Star Trek\u2026 The great Leonard Nimoy, then the brilliant Zachary Quinto, brought incomparable humanity to a character forever torn between logic and emotion. We searched for months for an actor who would, like them, bring his own interpretation to the role. An actor who would, like them, effortlessly embody Spock\u2019s greatest qualities, beyond obvious logic: empathy, intuition, compassion, confusion, and yearning.\u201d\r\n\r\n\u00a0Ethan Peck walked into the room inhabiting all of these qualities, aware of his daunting responsibility to Leonard, Zack, and the fans, and ready to confront the challenge in the service of protecting and expanding on Spock\u2019s legacy. In that spirit, we\u2019re thrilled to welcome him to the family.\u201d\r\n\r\nJust looking at Peck, you can say that he already kind of looks like Zachary Quinto already. Now all that\u2019s left is to see him actually act the role.\r\n\r\nSo far, the only Original Series character that we\u2019ve seen is Christopher Pike (Anson Mount). In the show, Spock played second commander to Pike before he was replaced by Kirk in the next episode. No doubt Spock will be someone who was already in Pike\u2019s crew by the time we meet them on the show.\r\n\r\nStar Trek: Discovery 2 comes out sometime in 2019.
