Is this the final season of the popular television show? Here is everything we know about the status of Star Trek: Discovery so far.
It’s time to say goodbye to one of the longest-running original drama series, which will end with its upcoming fifth season and is all set to make its debut next year! There is still a lot of time left for it to premiere, which is great for the fans to catch up with the prior seasons if they haven’t already. Previously, it was reported that the show was expected to premiere in early 2023, but Paramount announced in March 2023 that it would debut in early 2024 and would be the last for the series.
The description of the upcoming season states that the fifth and final season will find Captain Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and the crew of the USS Discovery uncovering a mystery that will send them on an epic adventure across the galaxy to find an ancient power whose very existence has been deliberately hidden for centuries. But there are others on the hunt as well – dangerous foes who are desperate to claim the prize for themselves and will stop at nothing to get it.

“When we first started talking about the return of Star Trek eight years ago, we never could have imagined the indelible impact Star Trek: Discovery would have,” said David Stapf, president of CBS Studios. “The series brought back a beloved global franchise, and just like its predecessors, Discovery honored Star Trek’s legacy of ‘infinite diversity in infinite combinations,’ representing the best of what we could be as humans when we celebrate our differences.”
In addition to this Kurtzman and Paradise added, “To the fans around the world, thank you for joining us on this incredible journey.” Further stating, “We can’t wait for you to see what we’ve been working on for this final season; we appreciate your patience in the meantime and trust us when we say it’ll be worth the wait. We love you all! LLAP.”
According to Deadline, as the end of Discovery and Picard approaches, there has been speculation about new series in the franchise as part of Kurtzman’s deal with CBS Studios. As previously reported, a new offshoot, Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, is in the works for the streamer at CBS Studios and Alex Kurtzman’s studio-based Secret Hideout. Section 31, a Discovery spinoff starring Michelle Yeoh as Emperor Philipa Georgiou, is also in the works. In addition to Discovery and Picard, current Star Trek series include Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Star Trek: Lower Decks, and Star Trek: Prodigy.
The series stars Sonequa Martin-Green as Michael Burnham, along with the returning Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz, Blu del Barrio, and David Ajala. They are joined by Callum Keith Rennie. Star Trek: Discovery is produced by CBS Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Michelle Paradise, Heather Kadin, Aaron Baiers, Olatunde Osunsanmi, Frank Siracusa, John Weber, Rod Roddenberry, and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers. Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise serve as co-showrunners.
The New York Comic Con 2022 Star Trek Universe audience got an action-packed first look at Star Trek: Discovery Season 5, which showcases Burnham, Saru, Tilly, and the rest of the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery returning for an epic new season. The teaser also gives a glimpse of more than 900 years after the events of Star Trek: The Original Series, on a galactic adventure to find a mysterious power that has been hidden for centuries and that other dangerous groups are also searching for.
The series will be available on Paramount+ in the U.S., the U.K., Switzerland, South Korea, Latin America, Germany, France, Italy, Australia, and Austria, with over 30,000 episodes and movies, including exclusive shows and movies you’ll only catch here—like Halo the Series, The Offer, and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds.
