Star Trek Discovery Season 5 Release Date Status And Latest Updates

Discussions of Star Trek: Discovery Season 5, this has kept the fans occupied all this while. But now it seems, there is going to be the fifth season and there can be no better news for the fans of Star Trek. 

Has Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 Been Renewed? 

Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 has been renewed and this is official news that ascertains the news surrounding the new season. Chances are there is a new home in the UK planned for the slick sci-fi drama that has never failed to keep the audience asking more. 

Where to Watch Star Trek: Discovery Season 5?

With three seasons streamed previously on Netflix, people were confident that the fifth season would be released on Netflix as well but the assumptions proved to be wrong ultimately. Before the fourth season was released, Paramount pulled the show out of Netflix and streamed it on the relaunched streaming service.

The problem with the abrupt move of Paramount is the OTT wasn’t available in a lot of countries and because Paramount pulled the 4th season right before the premiere, it did create a lot of confusion. 

Pluto TV streamed the fourth season of Star Trek: Discovery but when it comes to the fifth installment, we are sure it will be released on Paramount Plus.

Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 Release Date and Cast

The only official news we have regarding Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 is that it has been renewed in January and we are definitely going to have the fifth installment released soon. To date, Star Trek: Discovery ranks among the top-performing series’ available on Paramount Plus. 

Though we have got the official news surrounding the renewal, we are yet to receive any news surrounding the date of the announcement. However, we will not let you down, and based on the pattern and educated guesses of the timeframe we can expect them to see Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 in early 2023.

Previously, due to the worldwide pandemic, the Star Trek team suffered delays of about 11 months before releasing season 3. If all goes well this time, it will be released in early 2023.

There is no official release from Paramount regarding the cast list of season 5 yet. However, we are confident the main cast will remain the same and will return entirely for the new season. Like before, the team will be led by Captain Burham, played by Sonequa Martin-Green.

The captain is likely to be involved with the contortionist Doug Jones, playing the role of Saru. Saru wears a lot of prosthetics and is the first Kelpin who joins the ranks of Starfleet. Other members like Anthony Rapp as Paul Stamets, Wilson Cruz as Hugh Culber, Tig Notaro as Jett Reno, and Mary Wiseman as Sylvia Tilly are also likely to return in the new season.

In recent years we have seen the introduction of many new characters such as David Ajala, Blu del Barrio, and Oded Fehr along with the legendary director David Cronenberg.

Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 Plot

There is no official teaser or trailer which has been released by Paramount yet but we can make out assumptions regarding season five of Star Trek: Discovery.  

In the 4th season, we have seen how Species 10-C came into existence and all the plans made by the antagonist Ruon Tarka who ends up putting the universe at risk. The new season is likely to follow from where season 4 left.

Rumors also suggest that the new season can take inspiration from the events that happened in the real world. Michelle Paradise in one of the interviews with TV Line said: “We’re taking the spirit of what we were and are feeling like a global family, and then looking through the eyes of our characters and seeing how they would respond to something that is bigger than themselves.” 

What we are going to see in Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 is still a mystery but we are confident it is going to be something the fans will remember for a long time. The series has always surprised the viewers and this time, it will be no exception.
