‘Star Trek’: Picard, Discovery, Lower Decks, Strange New Worlds All Renewed & Get Premiere Dates!

The ‘Star Trek’ franchise is not going away any time soon, as Paramount+ announces Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Lower Decks, and even Star Trek: Strange New Worlds have all been handed new seasons! We also have been given some premiere dates.

“Four years ago, we made a promise to grow Star Trek into something it had never been before, and thanks to the incredibly hard work done by our many talented showrunners, writers, and directors, along with the extraordinary support of CBS Studios and Paramount+, we’re keeping our word,” said Alex Kurtzman, architect and executive producer, Star Trek franchise. “Now our current shows are set up for the future as we work to build Trek’s next phase of programming for years to come.”

‘Star Trek: Picard’ features Patrick Stewart reprising his iconic role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation’, and follows this iconic character into the next chapter of his life.

The upcoming 2nd Season will premiere March 3, 2022 on Paramount+ in the USA, and (unless they decide to pull the same crap as they did with Discovery…) should land Friday, 4th March 2022 on Amazon Prime in the UK – reports at the time of the “Discovery Debarcle” did say that ‘Picard’ and ‘Lower Decks’ were staying at Amazon for the time being. The announcement today confirmed that they are already in production on Season 3.

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ has been renewed for a new mission, bring it up to Season 5. Season 4, which is currently on a mid-season break, finds newly appointed Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery facing a threat unlike any they’ve ever encountered. With Federation and non-Federation worlds alike feeling the impact, they must confront the unknown and work together to ensure a hopeful future for all.

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ returns to the UK for Season 4, part 2, Friday, 11th February 2022 at 9pm on Pluto.tv, or you can buy the season via Amazon Video so you don’t have to be in front of the tv or computer at a specific time!

‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ hasn’t even aired an episode yet, and that has also been renewed, guaranteeing a 2nd Season. The series is based on the years Captain Christopher Pike manned the helm of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and will feature fan favourites from season two of ‘Star Trek: Discovery’: Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock. The series will follow Captain Pike, Science Officer Spock and Number One in the years before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ will premiere Season 1, Thursday, May 5th, 2022, on Paramount+ in the USA… Now, currently, Paramount+ hasn’t launched in the UK, BUT it is supposed to be launching at some point this year… we just don’t know when… Assuming the streaming service has had its UK launch by then, it will air on Paramount+. If it hasn’t, we’ll probably have to wait for it (or they may do another Pluto.tv type fudge…)

‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ is developed by Emmy Award-winner Mike McMahan (‘Rick and Morty’, ‘Solar Opposites’), and focuses on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos, in 2380. Ensigns Mariner, Boimler, Rutherford and Tendi have to keep up with their duties and their social lives, often while the ship is being rocked by a multitude of sci-fi anomalies.

The series has been renewed for Season 4, with Season 3 due to land in Summer 2022 on Paramount+ in the USA. For the UK, that’ll either air on Paramount+ UK (if it has launched), or may still be on Amazon, depending on what licensing deal is in place.

To recap – ‘Star Trek: Discovery‘ Season 4, part 2, premieres Friday, 11th February 2022 at 9pm on Pluto.tv. ‘Star Trek: Picard‘ Season 2 premieres Friday, 4th March 2022 on Amazon Prime UK (hopefully…)  ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks‘, and ‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds‘ don’t have specific UK premiere dates yet, but if you want to keep track of these or any other shows, you can add them via our Never Miss system, and you’ll be notified when it gets a UK premiere date.
