Paramount+’s first Star Trek series is still going strong ever since its debut in 2017, with Season 3 wrapping up at the start of 2021.
Star Trek: Discovery took the franchise into a brand-new territory after two power-packed seasons, by launching its own character, led by Sonequa Martin-Green’s Michael Burnham, into the 32nd century.
Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 will keep newly minted Captain Burnham in the future along with her crew as the Federation attempts to rebuild around them.
However, as per the first Season 4 trailer, which has been removed, they will have to contend with a strange new threat, one that isn’t actually a living being. With that in mind, it looks like Star Trek: Discovery will continue to push the franchise into fresh territory.
A premiere date hasn’t been given just yet, though the trailer said it would arrive in 2021.
Aside from its strange new threat, much of Season 4’s story remains a mystery. Once the filming and post-production take place, new details about what lies ahead for Star Trek: Discovery may finally emerge.
