it was announced today, is getting his dream-gig - he's returning to Star Trek, his first love, to run the new show for CBS! Fuller's first gigs were writing for Deep Space Nine and Voyager -- THR says he wrote 22 episodes of those shows before moving on to create some of the best television of the past 15 years with Wonderfalls and Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies and finally Hannibal; now it's back to where no man has gone before for him, something he's publicly been pining away for for as long as I've been following him.
Fuller is of course also running the adaptation of Neil Gaiman's American Gods for Starz, which we couldn't be more enthusiastic about; we don't have any worries about him spreading himself thin though since he's proven an endless supply of awesomeness for so long - we have nothing but faith... and in a weird way pride too? My lil' buddy is ruling the world! And he totally deserves to.
The new Star Trek is scheduled for January 2017.
