It’s San Diego Comic-Con, one of the biggest entertainment and fan conventions in the world, and that means juicy info on all our favorite projects. This time it’s Star Trek: Discovery’s turn.

The following article contains spoilers for the first season of the CBS series.

At the start of the first season, it received praise for placing a gay relationship front and center. They even gave us our first ever gay kiss in the Star Trek franchise.

Anthony Rapp and Wilson Cruz play Lieutenant Paul Stamets, the ship’s top scientist, and Dr Hugh Culber, Discovery’s medical officer, respectively.

When Hugh died in the first season, however, fans were not happy.

At the time, showrunners Gretchen J. Berg and Aaron Harberts, confirmed this wasn’t the end of their story.

At today’s Comic-Con panel for the show, Cruz confirmed he’s back for the second season.

‘I’m not here just to say hello,’ he said of his Season 2 role. ‘We knew it was the first chapter in a long love story. This was just a bump in the road… in my neck.’

The panel also revealed that the upcoming second season will introduce Spock.

The cast and crew are currently filming Season 2, which is expected to debut in 2019.
