PARAMOUNT+: The 5th season of Star Trek – Discovery won’t debut until 2024. And that will be the final season.
Discovery showrunners and executive producers, Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise, issued a joint statement about the show’s pending conclusion.
“As lifelong fans of Star Trek, it has been an immense honor and privilege to help bring Star Trek: Discovery to the world. The Trek universe means so much to so many – including us – and we couldn’t be prouder of everything Discovery has contributed to its legacy, particularly with representation. If just one person sees themselves, or the possibilities for their future, in a new way because of Discovery, then we think we’d have made Gene Roddenberry very proud.”
“There would be no Discoverywithout Sonequa Martin-Green and the extraordinary team of artists, both in front of and behind the camera, who have brought this show to life. Their passion and determination to make every episode special has been deeply inspiring; so too has their love and support for one another and their genuine love for Star Trek. Discovery has truly become a family over the years – and we couldn’t be more grateful to be part of it.”
So goodbye Discovery crew, we’ll miss you! But at least we have one more season to say our final farewells… Also, the series will be allowed additional time to wrap up storylines, since season five was not initially set to be the end when the season was filming…
