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.

For someone who is staunchly anti-woke, Steve-O seems to project a lot of knowledge about a historically woke media. And then they wonder why I keep saying they're proving me right over and over again, since my very early comment was about how unimaginative trolls will watch the whole thing and then complain about how woke it is when it ends or gets cancelled. When challenged, they will distract, berate and deflect because what else can they do?

How ironic the latest woke safe-space-pooper names himself 'get a life'. With an ephemeral name you can't be cancelled (rather sacrificed) by your own kind like elbae was and you can disavow everything. You think maybe Shatner was referencing you, and decades later it stayed stuck. The last I remember of Shatner was him peddling CPAPs and maybe catheters.
I couldn't disagree more with the desire for Star Trek to return to a facsimile of the original with Kirk. Spock would be the only thing worthy to keep around, if Nemoy was living. What's needed is to completely cut the cord with all known incarnations of Star Trek. I remember Jolene Blalock (Enterprise) being pissed off because they brought in kahuna Jonathan Frakes at the very end and he didn't fit and more or less wrecked the end. She was right.
The same episodes are repeated with alterations ad nauseam. Should Star Trek reappear (I predict it's all but gone now), they should keep the name only - with all new ideas for exploring space, for ship and crew - except the original motto was good. The not resurrected not woke Star Trek could be called Star Trek: Disconnected.

Did you really just type out "wet his panties?"
What is WRONG with you?
Shatner's line from SNL has never been more apt.
Speaking of Kirk, they should just go back to the well and give us an original crew series. Give the fans what they want, and have some time-bending crossovers.

Get the *ashamed* child a safe space. He'd even wet his panties at Star Trek convention.
Indeed, I think Star Trek may have run its course when the current versions wrap up. Another hiatus at least is pretty much a sure bet.

Well, truthfully in my opinion it has run it's course, not really going to miss this one.

Seriously, where are the moderators?
It's the same culprits, just ban them.
Anyway, I hope the next original show after Discovery sticks to the Picard, post-TNG era. Strange New Worlds satisfies interest in the TOS pre-Kirk era...jumping ahead 900 years is fine, but the lack of connection with the "main" timeline is another thing that weakened Discovery as a show. They "had" to jump forward in order to explain why Discovery, the spore drive, and Michael Burnham were never mentioned before, but they never should've written themselves into that corner in the first place.

He-Karen has tried work-shopping my gender, my politics, my values, and now also my weight...all the time proving me right that trolls have lost their edge because He-Karen has nothing new to offer to the discussion except rewording the same shtick over and over again without actually countering any of my queries. They even had to go hide until someone else replied so that they could piggy-back off the reply (unsuccessfully) and try to distract from the actual responses asked of them.
This is what happens when one (me) has a valid point that the other (He-Karen) cannot counter because their own value system is either a superficial internet persona or a very shallow one born of indoctrination rather than education.

The last *ashamed* blowhard, immediately below, lives under a rock and surely would break any mirror if he could get his fat body upright..
Many, if not most of us, are aware of the power and sometimes overwhelming efforts of the woke movement: changing gender norms, indoctrinating children, changing language, mandating and enforcing diversity, not allowing humor and art like Dr Suess any anything that isn't woke approved, .... the current agenda list is extensive so I won't draw it here.
I suspect if one is in favor of this agenda that's being strongly pushed, you might be less aware. However, I think most everybody is fully aware of exactly what's going on overall and many of those that like it pretend the great push is imaginary. While others, who do not like many things that are woke, are sensitive and bothered when we sense that entertainment is not the priority, the woke agenda is.

Where is the moderator for this site---why have two or three people been allowed to hijack and entire comments section?
Discovery was not the weakest Trek show, but definitely wasn't the strongest--it had a lot of issues. Weakest would still be Star Trek: Enterprise. I agree with the person who said it devolved into a soap opera at times.
Arguing like this just confirms none of you get the point of Trek, which is for everyone to coexist DESPITE our differences. Shame on all of you.

Read my comment again. I got the definitions right. But the example wasn't the point. The point raised, and the query raised, you haven't addressed yet. Obvious deflection is obvious.
