Paramount+ Renews ‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ For Season 4 & Confirms ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ Season 5 With Be It’s Last

Good news and bad news...

by Dave Elliott

It’s “good news/bad news” time, as Paramount+ announces the brilliant Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has been renewed for Season 4 before Season 3 has even aired (yay!)… But also confirmed the upcoming 5th Season of equally brilliant Star Trek: Lower Decks will be its last… (booo!)

“It has been incredibly rewarding to continue to build the Star Trek universe, and we’re so grateful to Secret Hideout and our immensely talented casts and producers,” said Jeff Grossman, Executive Vice President, Programming, Paramount+. “‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ has found the perfect blend of action, adventure and humour, and we’re elated to announce another season ahead of our season three premiere. Similarly, STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS has brought the laughs with an ample amount of heart to the franchise across its four seasons. We can’t wait for audiences to see what is in store for the crew of the U.S.S. Cerritos in this final season.”

‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ is based on the years Captain Christopher Pike manned the helm of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The series follows Captain Pike, Science Officer Spock, Number One and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise, in the years before Captain Kirk boarded the starship, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy. The series stars Anson Mount, Rebecca Romijn, Ethan Peck, Jess Bush, Christina Chong, Celia Rose Gooding, Melissa Navia and Babs Olusanmokun, along with special guest stars Paul Wesley and Carol Kane.

‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ is an animated comedy series that focuses on the support crew serving on one of Starfleet’s least important ships, the U.S.S. Cerritos. The crew residing in the “lower decks” of the U.S.S. Cerritos includes the voices of Tawny Newsome, Jack Quaid, Noël Wells and Eugene Cordero; the bridge crew is voiced by Dawnn Lewis, Jerry O’Connell, Fred Tatasciore and Gillian Vigman.

“‘Lower Decks‘ and ‘Strange New Worlds’ are integral to the Star Trek franchise, expanding the boundaries of the universe and exploring new and exciting worlds,” said David Stapf, President, CBS Studios,  in a somewhat odd statement, given he’s just cancelled one of them, but anyway, he continues… “We are extraordinarily proud of both series as they honour the legacy of what Gene Roddenberry created almost 60 years ago. We are so grateful to work with Secret Hideout, Alex Kurtzman, Mike McMahan, Akiva Goldsman, Henry Alonso Myers and the cast, crews and artists who craft these important and entertaining stories for fans around the world.”

‘Strange New Worlds’ is produced by CBS Studios, Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Akiva Goldsman, Jenny Lumet, Henry Alonso Myers, Aaron Baiers, Dana Horgan, Davy Perez, Frank Siracusa, John Weber, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers.

‘Star Trek: Lower Decks’ is produced by CBS’ Eye Animation Productions, CBS Studios’ animation arm; Secret Hideout; and Roddenberry Entertainment. Executive producers include Alex Kurtzman, Mike McMahan, Aaron Baiers, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth. Titmouse, the Emmy Award-winning independent animation production company, serves as the animation studio for the series.

We don’t yet have exact premiere dates for either show, however, ‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds‘ Season 3 is currently in production, but won’t premiere until 2025. ‘Star Trek: Lower Decks‘ 5th and final season will premiere in Autumn (aka Fall Season) 2024. 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.
