Set you phasers on excited as Paramount+ just announced a new season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will premiere globally this summer. The first season of the series was immediately embraced by Star Trek fans, both old and new. That includes us here at Awards Radar where we covered the series extensively through interviews with the artisans, cast and episodic coverage on our The ‘Verse! Podcast. (The team loved it so much it made their top ten TV series of 2022.)
The announcement was paired with more news Trek fans will be happy to hear, Star Trek: Lower Decks will also return this summer. That’s not the end of the good news, Paramount+ also announced that both series have been renewed for additional seasons: Strange New Worlds for a 10-episode third season and Lower Decks for a 10-episode fifth season.
According to the Paramount+ press release: “Season two of the original drama series STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS will premiere Thursday, June 15 on Paramount+ in the U.S, the U.K., Australia, Latin America, Brazil, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. New episodes of the 10-episode season will be available to stream weekly on Thursdays. The second season will also be available to stream on Paramount+ in South Korea, with premiere dates to be announced at a later date.“
“Season four of the original animated comedy series STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS will premiere in late summer on Paramount+ in the U.S., with the exact date to be announced. International premiere dates will be also announced at a later date.“
But wait, there’s more. Star Trek fans young and old will be treated to more new animated adventures as the critically-acclaimed animated series Star Trek: Prodigy will return for season two this winter. As previously announced, the fifth and final season of Star Trek: Discovery will also premiere in early 2024.
That’s a lot of Star Trek! Look for our coverage here at Awards Radar and on The ‘Verse!
