Good news, Star Trek fans—in the broadest sense, because this affects multiple among Paramount+’s current crop of shows. The streamer has just revealed premiere dates and renewal news for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Star Trek: Lower Decks, and Star: Trek Prodigy.
First, new seasons of pre-TOS series Strange New Worlds and animated series Lower Decks will be arriving very soon: Strange New Worlds on June 15, and Lower Decks at a “late summer” date TBD. As fans have already been eagerly anticipating, that second season of Strange New Worlds will include the crossover episode—mixing animation and live-action—with Lower Decks, which will bring Tawny Newsome’s Ensign Beckett Mariner and Jack Quaid as Ensign Brad Boimler aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise, no doubt to cause mischief and mayhem galore. As previously announced, Riker himself, Jonathan Frakes, is the director on that one.
And, very exciting! Both shows have also been renewed for 10 more episodes—guaranteeing a third season for Strange New Worlds, and a fifth season for Lower Decks.
Then, animated kids’ series Star Trek: Prodigy will return this winter (date TBD) for its second season. As we already knew, Star Trek: Discovery’s fifth and final season will be premiering in early 2024—and of course you can catch new episodes of Picard streaming Thursdays on Paramount+.
