Fern Siegel

“Star Trek: Discovery” has been renewed for Season 4 at CBS All Access. Production begins Nov. 2. The series stars Sonequa Martin-Green, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman and Wilson Cruz. Season 3 of “Discovery” debuted Oct. 15. CBS has a big investment in the “Star Trek” franchise. There are now five shows in the shared universe on All Access: “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds,” “Star Trek: Picard,” “Star Trek: Short Treks” and the adult animated series “Star Trek: Lower Decks.”

Jake Gyllenhaal (“Brokeback Mountain”) will star in the HBO/HBO Max series “The Son,” based on Jo Nesbo’s novel. It is the first regular TV role of the actor’s career. “The Son” is a revenge tale set in Oslo. “Westworld” creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy will executive produce, along with Gyllenhaal.

Jamie Foxx will star in and executive produce “Day Shift” for Netflix. He plays a blue-collar dad wanting to provide for his young daughter, but his real money comes from a specific skill-set: hunting and killing vampires.

Here’s a look at other deals and upcoming projects:

  • Kate Hudson will star opposite Octavia Spencer in the second season of “Truth Be Told” on Apple TV+. Spencer plays a true-crime podcaster.
