Matt Shakman’s appointment as director of the next Star Trek picture comes on the heels of WandaVision’s 23 Emmy nominations, for which he acted as both director and executive producer. In the past, Shakman served as the director and executive producer of The Great as creative director of Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. In Philadelphia, he also directed episodes of Game of Thrones, Fargo and It’s Always Sunny.

With director J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek, Paramount relaunched the Star Trek picture franchise in 2009. Through his Bad Robot production business, Abrams also co-produced the picture. Abrams later returned to direct and produce the sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness, which was released in 2013. Star Trek Beyond, the third installment in the reboot series, was published in 2016. Abrams returned to produce Beyond, but stepped down as director, leaving Justin Lin to direct the picture.
