Scott Bakula and other Star Trek: Enterprise actors could be returning.
In its 54 year hit-and-miss history, Star Trek has cemented itself as one of the biggest and most lucrative franchises in the world, spawning several movies, TV spin-offs, sequels and prequels such as Star Trek: Enterprise.
Star Trek: Enterprise was a prequel to the original series; it debuted on September 26th, 2001 and ran for four seasons until May 13th, 2005.
Moreover, it was the last Star Trek series to be released until Star Trek: Discovery premiered 12 years later.
The show was considered more of a miss among most critics and fans but it still garnered an impressive cult following.
In fact, after its cancellation, some fans even campaigned to save the show; however, it was to no avail.
Its audience wasn’t large enough to warrant a resurrection.
Of all the franchise’s pre-streaming programs, the series was probably the less liked.
Scott Bakula and Star Trek: Enterprise Actors Could Return
Given that it had fan favorite Scott Bakula in the lead, it truly had more commercial potential.
While the show itself is maybe past saving, its characters might not be.
According to a new report, Paramount is planning to bring back certain characters from Star Trek: Enterprise for future appearances in existing or upcoming planned series with the original actors possibly even reprising their roles.
The characters planned to make a comeback at this moment are Scott Bakula as Captain Jonathan Archer, Jolene Blalock as T’Pol, and John Billingsley as Dr. Phlox.
In addition, possibly even more of the Star Trek: Enterprise crew could follow, too.
That depends on if discussions at Paramount prove fruitful.
This wouldn’t be the first time the franchise has brought back some of its classic characters to its recent shows, such as Patrick Stewart’s fan favorite character, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, in his own spin-off.
This would be welcoming news to fans of Star Trek: Enterprise and the overall franchise should this come to pass.
Furthermore, it could possibly even give the series a second chance among viewers who were left underwhelmed upon its original broadcast.
