STAR TREK: A New Captain Kirk Is Coming To STRANGE NEW WORLDS - Get A First Look

For many years, William Shatner was synonymous with James T. Kirk on the small screen, but Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has now cast The Vampire Diaries actor Paul Wesley as the iconic Enterprise Captain.

A new actor is set to take over as one of the most iconic sci-fi heroes in TV history, Captain James Tiberius Kirk!

In an unusual move, Paramount+ has announced that Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has added The Vampire Diaries alum Paul Wesley to the cast of its currently shooting second season. He'll sit in the chair vacated by William Shatner as a new take on the legendary Enterprise Captain.

“Paul is an accomplished actor, an astonishing presence and a welcome key addition to the show,” said executive producer Alex Kurtzman and showrunners Akiva Goldsman and Henry Alonso Myers in a statement. “Like all of us, he is a life-long Star Trek fan and we are excited by his interpretation of this iconic role.

The first season of Strange New Worlds doesn't air until May 5, but several of Kirk's familiar crewmates, including Mr. Spock and Lieutenant Uhura, are already in place after debuting in Star Trek: Discovery.

Get a first look at our new Kirk in the Captain's chair below along with the recently released trailer.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is set to debut this May, and also stars Anson Mount as Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One, Ethan Peck as Mr. Spock, Babs Olusanmokun as Doctor M'Benga, Christina Chong as L'an Noonian-Singh, Celia Rose as Nyota Uhura, Jess Bush as Nurse Christine Chapel, and Bruce Horak as Hemmer.
