Fans are right to wonder if Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 will get a release date or if it’s been canceled in the world of streaming original series. Paramount is putting a lot of money into Star Trek, but in today’s world, you never know when something will be cut. Below, we’ll talk about the future of Star Trek: Discovery, including possible release dates, the plot, returning cast members, leaks, and more.
Deadline says that Star Trek: Discovery will return for a fifth season in January 2022. Since none of the new Star Trek shows have been canceled, we can assume that they are doing well. But Paramount hasn’t shared its streaming numbers, so we don’t know for sure how Discovery stacks up against other Star Trek shows, past or present.
Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 hasn’t been given a release date yet, but based on what’s happened in the past, it’s likely to come out in October or November 2022. We can also assume that there will be 13 episodes, as there were in the first two seasons, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet. We don’t know yet if the season will play from start to finish or if there will be a break like in seasons one and four.
What’s the Plot for season 5?
Deadline says that there will be the fifth season of Star Trek: Discovery starting in January 2022. Since none of the new Star Trek shows has been canceled, we can assume that they are doing well. But Paramount hasn’t shared its streaming numbers yet, so we don’t know for sure how Discovery stacks up against other Star Trek shows, past or present.
Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 hasn’t been given a release date yet, but if it’s like the other seasons, it’ll probably come out in October or November 2022. We can also guess that there will be 13 episodes, like the last two seasons, but that hasn’t been officially confirmed. We don’t know yet if the season will play straight through or have a break like seasons one and four did.
At the end of the fourth season, I’ve (a Vulcan) and Earth has joined the Federation, making it stronger. Tell Prime will never leave the Federation, so only Andoria’s future is uncertain among the founding members. Maybe the stakes will be lower in season five, and the Discovery and her crew will try to get in touch with more former Federation members.
Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 cast
Since there were no big deaths in the fourth season, we can probably expect that most, if not all, of the main characters, co-stars, and some the guest stars will be back.
We don’t know for sure which cast members will be back, but no one has said they’re leaving either, so for now, we can assume that the list below is pretty accurate (but likely not exhaustive).
