The sci-fi drama will conclude its run in 2024.
March 2, 2023
Paramount+ announced today that Star Trek: Discovery will be coming to an end after its upcoming fifth season. It has been nearly a year since the sci-fi drama last aired a new episode, and fans will have to wait about another year until it returns for its final season, which won't air until early 2024.
"Star Trek: Discovery is a perennial favorite on the service, near and dear to the hearts of legions of 'Star Trek' fans as well as all of us here at Paramount+," said Tanya Giles, chief programming officer at Paramount Streaming. "The series and its incredible cast and creatives ushered in a new era for 'Star Trek' when it debuted over six years ago, embracing the future of streaming with serialized storytelling, bringing to life deep and complex characters that honor Gene Roddenberry's legacy of representing diversity and inclusion, and pushing the envelope with award-winning world-building. This final season will see our beloved crew take on a new adventure and we can't wait to celebrate the series' impact on the franchise leading up to its final season early next year."
Taking place 10 years before the events of the original 'Star Trek' series, Star Trek: Discovery follows a brand new crew on a new ship as they take on missions to find undiscovered worlds and lifeforms during the Federation-Klingon war.
Season 5 will find Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery uncovering a mystery that will send them on an epic adventure across the galaxy to find an ancient power whose very existence has been deliberately hidden for centuries. But there are dangerous foes also on the hunt, desperate to claim the prize for themselves.

I agree with all of that.
It's too bad because I liked the Aenar character. He was grumpy and refreshingly candid. I just want interesting characters. That's it.

I'm not sure it counts as they brought her back anyway, since they want her to star in the Section 31 show (or did at the time).
Having a disabled character on a show doesn't automatically make it woke. But killing one is often considered a "trope". Even if it's for legit reasons.
it's entirely how you present it and this show made the wokeness very prominent in every episode. Unfortunately SNW is treading the line with it as well, so I guess we will see where the cards fall.
Discovery started out pretty woke and has amped it up after every season. SNW less so, but they have pushed elements up to the front. We will see how next season go.
There's nothing at all wrong with shows that are woke or push "the message" but if that isn't what the majority want to watch, then it is their right to speak about it and even push to get it cancelled. That has been how TV shows have worked since the point in time that ratings implemented as a means to determine if a show should remain on the air.

To all the people whining about wokeness, you conveniently ignore that Strange New Worlds red shirted the only disabled character on the show after barely half a season, and Discovery killed a female, Asian Captain in its first episode. I mean, if they were as "woke" as you claim, those two things never would've happened.

Another failure of american education system thinks the US is the world. Hollywood stopped catering to just the US audience a long time ago. If you want stuff catered to your neck of the woods, watch the latest Steven Seagal movie...

After season 4.. not really sure WHY I'd even try season 5.
What's needed is to go back to season 1 of this series.. a rebellion against Star Fleet from within.... that was what made this series interesting at its inception. It then quickly faded into the standard tropes and carefulness to not offend any "delicate snowflakes".
So sick of every show catering to less than 5% of the US population.

About time. This was trash, it wasn't quite as bad right at first, but it very quickly degenerated to the point all it did was push "the message" in the disguise of star trek. Good ridden to bad rubbish.

Is "ashamed" in the room with you now? are you okay in your safe space, Steve?
I'm sure you only watch to make references, and don't have a bedroom that looks like the bridge of the Enterprise.
Calling you a "He-Karen" was on target.
Keep pretending to be a "real man's man" despite being a nerd who would cry if anyone over 5'6" approached him.

Thanks for astutely correcting my joke Lmoa scabface (aka *ashamed*, *get a life* and hundreds more from the safety of his hole).
I did good just to remember that planet from 30? years ago. I watch only once so I have to defer to the groupies.

The Risa episodes of Star Trek are some of their worst. Nothing is more cringey and awkward than Star Trek trying to be "sexy." It's still the case.
It's all we need to know about Steve over here. Well that, and his word salad posts.

Regards - I'm on planet Risa right now enjoying a freeing volcanic-ash mud bath.
