Months ago, we got the news that Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 would be the last of the series. As the first modern Star Trek series to launch the franchise into online streaming, with CBS All Access turned Paramount+, it’s done a great job. Paramount+ beamed into San Diego Comic-Con 2023 to update Trekkies on the fifth and final season. A new Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 Clip was revealed. Additionally, the series will conclude in Early 2024!
In the five-minute clip, which you can watch above, Captain Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) pursues Moll (Eve Harlow) and L’ak (Elias Toufexis) by holding onto their starship while it travels at warp speed. Seriously, that is somewhat crazy for Star Trek. Reminds me of Destiny The Game. Paramount+ also released a “Behind-The-Scenes” look at Star Trek: Discovery Season 5.
Star Trek: Discovery brought record subscriptions for CBS All Access. It also became the most-viewed original series on both All Access and the successor, Paramount+. Additionally, the series began an expansion of the Star Trek franchise and collected numerous accolades, including Primetime Emmy Awards. While the original premise was criticised, Discovery found a new home in its 32nd Century setting with the arrival of the 3rd season in 2020.
Star Trek: Discovery Ends With Season 5
Paramount+ announced in March 2023 that Star Trek: Discovery would end and that the fifth and final season had been pushed to early 2024. Initially announced in November 2015, the series debuted in 2017 on CBS All Access, the former brand name of Paramount+. At the time of the announcement, series star Soneuqa Martin Green shared some words about her time as Captain Michael Burnham.
It’s worth noting that Discovery has been somewhat pivotal to modern Star Trek as a whole. It helped announce then-upstart CBS All Access as one of the first original series for the platform. It also spearheaded the Star Trek Universe in streaming and spun out Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and Michelle Yeoh’s much anticipated Star Trek: Section 31 Movie. At the time of the announcement, Soneuqa Martin-Green said the following:
“I can hardly believe that this mind-blowing journey with ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ is ending, I’m astoundingly blessed by God to have played Captain Michael Burnham and to have taken part in a legacy alongside an extraordinary cast, phenomenal crew and remarkable writing team. To our most supportive partners at CBS Studios and Paramount+, who insisted on making television history, I’m deeply grateful. I’m also deeply grateful for the creative collaboration with our showrunners Michelle Paradise and Alex Kurtzman, as well as Olatunde Osunsanmi and the incomparable team of executive producers.
I will never forget how it felt to stand together as a show family, cradling the heirloom of ‘Trek’ with all those from the franchise at large and with the fans. The fans welcomed us into their hearts as we launched a new iteration of ‘Trek’ and an entire entertainment platform, and we’ll never forget it. 65 episodes later, here’s to the entire company of ‘Star Trek: Discovery,’ to the show and its fifth and final season, to its beloved fans and to all those who envision a better future. Let’s fly…Sonequ Martin-Green On Star Trek: Discovery
The Future of Star Trek
The upcoming fifth season of Star Trek: Discovery will again follow Captain Michael Burnham. However, the crew of the USS Discovery will be working to uncover a mystery that will send them on an adventure across the galaxy. It’s teased that the mystery will have something to do with an ancient power. Actor Callum Keith Rennie joins season 5 as Captain Rayner. It remains to be seen if the upcoming Starfleet Academy series will find a home in Discovery’s era of the Star Trek Universe.
As Star Trek: Discovery Is Ending. Naturally, we ask, what is next? Well, Paramount+ still has some Trek going on right now. Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has taken the flagship role. The franchise is supported by only one remaining animated series, Star Trek: Lower Decks, after Star Trek: Prodigy was cancelled. Additionally, it has been reported that a “Starfleet Academy” series is in development. We’ll need to wait and see.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds streams via Paramount+ in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Latin America, France, Germany, Brazil, South Korea (via Tving), France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland & Austria. As well as CTV Scifi / Crave in Canada, & TVNZ in New Zealand. And on SkyShowtime in the Nordics, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, and Central and Eastern Europe.
