The new season of the sci-fi series will be adding Michelle Paradise as a co-showrunner alongside Alex Kurtzman who helmed Season 2.
Paradise worked on the second season as a co-executive producer.
"Michelle joined us midway through season two and energized the room with her ferocious knowledge of Trek," Kurtzman said in a statement.
"Her grasp of character and story detail, her drive and her focus have already become essential in ensuring the Trek legacy, and her fresh perspective always keeps us looking forward. I'm proud to say Michelle and I are officially running 'Star Trek: Discovery' together," he continued.
