She also admitted that Book’s introduction to the show has a personal impact on her as a person, being “able to see someone on the outside and be self-driven and not under the umbrella of an institution and an institution’s standards, but to be completely driven by his own heart and passion.”
“I do believe that over the course of that year as Burnham, he really moved me and it helped me chart out this new path and this new life and this new identity for myself.”
For what season four is concerned, the showrunners previously teased in an interview with Deadline that: “Her relationship with Book will be tested in many ways, for reasons I won’t tell you.”
Unfortunately, fans will have to wait quite a bit to find out what exactly will happen between the couple as season four of Star Trek Discovery does not have a release date yet but is expected for late 2021.
Star Trek: Discovery is available to stream on Paramount+ and Netflix.
