Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has been confirmed by CBS for their pay interactive streaming service. The idea follows huge positive reaction to the appearance of Captain Pike in Star Trek: Discovery.

There have also been a number of Short Treks with the three main characters, Captain Pike, Spock and Number One. This was all set 10 years before the much loved original series of Star Trek. That featured Captain Kirk (Willian Shatner) and Spock (Leonard Nimoy).
