Truly, an embarrassment of Star Trek riches is upon us as Paramount+ has just announced renewal updates for more of our favorite Star Trek programs! (Spoiler: It’s all of them!)

The past few years have seen a beautiful resurgence and expansion of the Star Trek universe. The popularity of Star Trek: Discovery has led to the creation of two more live-action Star Trek shows: Star Trek: Picard and Star Trek: Strange New Worlds (a Discovery spinoff) and also two different animated Star Trek shows (Star Trek: Lower Decks and Star Trek: Prodigy)!

That’s five Star Trek shows! At once! The closest we have ever come to this was when Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager ran concurrently! Truly a blessed bounty we do have! Shaka his arms wide!

So, pull out those planners, because we have some dates for you! Paramount+ announced today that Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed for a fifth season! The 4th season has just come to a climactic, galaxy altering end yet again, with Earth finally rejoining The Federation, which means that fans are already clamoring for news about the  fifth season. Currently season 5 is now in pre-production so there is no official news yet about it’s release date, but there is speculation that it could be coming some time in 2023. So batton down the hatches and sit tight DISCO fans, because it’s only a matter of time until we know more!

But what about the rest of the Trek shows?

When is Star Trek: Lower Decks season 3 releasing?

The animated show Star Trek: Lower Decks, which left us on the shocking cliffhanger of Captain Freeman being arrested and dragged off in handcuffs, will return in the summer of 2022 with a 10-episode third season, and has also been renewed for a 10-episode fourth season.

The animated children’s show Star Trek: Prodigy is streaming the first half of its first season, with the tenth episode streaming Thursday Feb 3, 2022. The second half of the season will return later in 2022.

Truly, our cups overfloweth with Romulan ale (or Klingon blood wine, if you’re nasty).
