CBS has just ordered two seasons of an animated Star Trek series called ‘Lower Decks’.

The animated comedy “will focus on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships,” Deadline noted.

To be developed by Mike McMahan – of Ricky and Morty fame – the upcoming series will become the fourth Star Trek property on CBS All-Access, which already houses Discovery, Short Treks, and a yet-named Patrick Stewart-led show.

To handle production, CBS plans to create a new animation company called CBS Eye Animation Productions. According to sources, Alex Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout production company will also play a role in the creation of the upcoming show.

So far, fan reaction has been mixed.
