Paramount+ today announced new seasons of its hit original series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and Star Trek: Lower Decks will premiere globally this summer. In addition, Paramount+ announced that both series have been renewed for additional seasons — Star Trek: Strange New Worlds for a 10-episode third season and Star Trek: Lower Decks for a 10-episode fifth season.
Season two of the original drama series Star Trek: Strange New Worlds will premiere Thursday, June 15 on Paramount+ in the U.S, the U.K., Australia, Latin America, Brazil, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Austria. New episodes of the 10-episode season will be available to stream weekly on Thursdays. The second season will also be available to stream on Paramount+ in South Korea, with premiere dates to be announced at a later date.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is based on the years Captain Christopher Pike manned the helm of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The series features fan favorites Anson Mount as Captain Christopher Pike, Rebecca Romijn as Number One and Ethan Peck as Science Officer Spock.
Season four of the original animated comedy series Star Trek: Lower Decks will premiere in late summer on Paramount+ in the U.S., with the exact date to be announced. International premiere dates will be also announced at a later date.
Created by Emmy Award winner Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty, Solar Opposites), in season four of Star Trek: Lower Decks, an unknown force is destroying starships and threatening galactic peace. Luckily, the crew of the U.S.S. Cerritos isn’t important enough for stuff like that! Instead, Ensigns Mariner, Boimler, Tendi, Rutherford and Provisional Ensign T’Lyn are keeping up with their Starfleet duties, avoiding malevolent computers, and getting stuck in a couple caves — all while encountering new and classic aliens along the way.
Fans will be treated to even more new animated Star Trek as the critically acclaimed original animated kids’ series Star Trek: Prodigy will return with season two this winter. The Children’s and Family Emmy Award-winning series is from Nickelodeon and CBS Studios’ Eye Animation Productions.
Developed by Emmy Award winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (Trollhunters, Ninjago), the CG-animated series Star Trek: Prodigy is the first Star Trek series aimed at younger audiences and follows a motley crew of young aliens who must figure out how to work together while navigating a greater galaxy, in search of a better future. These six young outcasts know nothing about the ship they have commandeered — a first in the history of the Star Trek franchise — but over the course of their adventures together, they will each be introduced to Starfleet and the ideals it represents.
As previously announced, the fifth and final season of Star Trek: Discovery will premiere in early 2024.
Season two of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds includes the previously announced special crossover episode featuring both live-action and animation, and Star Trek: Lower Decks’ Tawny Newsome as Ensign Beckett Mariner and Jack Quaid as Ensign Brad Boimler joining the U.S.S. Enterprise. The episode was directed by Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Picard actor and director Jonathan Frakes.
