STAR TREK: DISCOVERY Showrunners Berg & Harberts Out, Kurtzman To Take Over

As confirmed by Deadline, the duo of Harberts and Berg will exit the series, with sources saying there were no creative problems, but more of operational issues.

“The series continues under the creative vision and leadership of executive producer and co-creator Alex Kurtzman. Discovery remains on course for season two in 2019 with new and continuing stories that build on its successful premiere season.” CBS TV Studios said in a statement.

    So the two people that fixed that cluster F that was the first part of season one of Discovery and turned into a Good Star Trek series are out. And one of the guys that helped write that horrible part of the season now has control of the series. Way to go CBS that seems like a real smart move. It will be a wonder if any one sticks around for more then the season premier. And that will only be to see Captain Pike and The Enterprise. Seriously do the execs at CBS have memory loss. If Kurtzman & Fuller couldn’t keep the filming on schedule last time what makes them think he can do it this time.
