Upcoming Star Trek TV Shows: What's Ahead For The Sci-Fi Franchise

Here's what's ahead for Star Trek.

Michael Burnham on Star Trek: Discovery

It’s a golden era for Star Trek tv shows, as the franchise is churning out more content than ever before. Fans with a Paramount+ subscription can stream a plethora of old and new content from one of the greatest sci-fi franchises of all time.

There’s a ton of new Star Trek content coming in the future, including the debut of a new show as well as the return of all the ones fans already know well. For those who need a breakdown of what all to expect, look no further because here’s where and when all the new Trek will arrive in 2023 and beyond. There’s even some information on planned shows that aren’t quite ready yet, but hopefully, we’ll see them soon enough.

Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 - Premiering On April 4th 2024

Captain Michael Burnham and the crew are back, and based on what we've seen and heard about Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 so far, some changes are on the way. Season 5 will see the crew race against others in an attempt to secure an ancient power, and will apparently have a tonal shift that will skew more toward action and adventure. We also learned that this coming season will be the final adventure , as Paramount+ decided to end the series after this coming season. The final season will kick off in April and, fingers crossed, leave an avenue open for more stories with these characters in the 32nd century.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 3 - In Production

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is coming back for Season 3, and is currently filming for the upcoming season. It's likely the season will kick off with the second part of the adventure started in the Season 2 finale . Pike must decide whether or not he's going to listen to Starfleet and retreat to avoid further conflict with the Gorn or to stay and try to save the kidnapped crew members. I have a hunch I know what decision he'll make, but I'm also very invested in seeing if Scotty will remain with the crew and what other adventures will come as well.

Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 - Coming In 2024

Paramount+ originally renewed Star Trek: Prodigy for Season 2, but announced later that it had been canceled alongside other shows on the platform. While the news was a bummer to many and encouraged responses from stars like Kate Mulgrew , there is a silver lining. After some talk with other companies, Paramount managed to negotiate a deal where the series will transition over to Netflix , and Season 2 will release over there. At this time, it's unknown whether or not this will lead to more seasons of Prodigy , but fans are thankful they'll at least get to see the season that was being worked on coming up in 2024. 

Georgiou in Star Trek: Discovery

Section 31 Movie - Production Complete

Section 31 was one of the first Star Trek spinoffs announced after Discovery , and yet it took the longest to get off the ground. The series was supposed to Michelle Yeoh ’s Phillipa Georgiou and her efforts in the secret ops Starfleet faction that does the jobs that others in the organization would rather not know about. Other former Discovery stars, like Shazad Latif, were involved at one point, but some believed the odds of it happening aren't great after Michelle Yeoh's Oscar win .

It turns out Yeoh was interested in making it happen, and Paramount+ decided to alter the idea to a movie . Fans are excited about the project all the same, and ready to see Michelle Yeoh back in her role. Production on the film is officially underway, and it's looking like a premiere sometime in late 2024 to 2025 is likely.

Tilly in Star Trek: Discovery

Starfleet Academy - Production Starting In 2024

Alex Kurtzman revealed not long ago that Star Trek is actively working on another new live-action series , and it’s going to be set at Starfleet Academy. Of course, we don’t know exactly what era this series is set to take place during or who is going to star in it yet. We don’t really know much of anything, though it’s worth noting that Star Trek: Discovery did write off its character Tilly when she took an offer at Starfleet Academy. The episode where that happened seemed like it could be a backdoor pilot for the show, but again, we have no idea. We do know that the writer's room is underway, but details are scant beyond that.  

As shown above, there’s still a ton of Star Trek on the way in 2024, and beyond. The only way to watch these shows is with a Paramount+ subscription , which is totally worth picking up with the increasing amount of shows and movies available to watch. 

Mick Joest is a Content Producer for CinemaBlend with his hand in an eclectic mix of television goodness. Star Trek is his main jam, but he also regularly reports on happenings in the world of Star Trek, WWE, Doctor Who, 90 Day Fiancé, Quantum Leap, and Big Brother. He graduated from the University of Southern Indiana with a degree in Journalism and a minor in Radio and Television. He's great at hosting panels and appearing on podcasts if given the chance as well.

Paramount+ announces new seasons of “star trek: strange new worlds” and “star trek: lower decks” will premiere globally this summer.

Both CBS Studios-Produced Series Also Renewed for Additional Seasons

“ Star Trek: Prodigy” to Return This Winter

March 28, 2023 – 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.

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.

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.

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.


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. The series follows Captain Pike, Science Officer Spock and Number One in the years before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise, as they explore new worlds around the galaxy.

STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS also stars Jess Bush as Nurse Christine Chapel, Christina Chong as La’an Noonien-Singh, Celia Rose Gooding as Cadet Nyota Uhura, Melissa Navia as Lt. Erica Ortegas and Babs Olusanmokun as Dr. M’Benga. Season two also features the return of special guest star Paul Wesley as James T. Kirk and new addition Carol Kane in a recurring role as Pelia.

Season two of STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS is produced by CBS Studios, Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment. Akiva Goldsman and Henry Alonso Myers serve as co-showrunners. Goldsman, Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet serve as executive producers in addition to Alonso Myers, Aaron Baiers, Heather Kadin, Frank Siracusa, John Weber, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth.

Season one of STAR TREK: STRANGE NEW WORLDS is currently available to stream exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., U.K., Latin America, Australia, South Korea, Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland and Austria and airs on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and streams on Crave in Canada and on SkyShowtime in the Nordics, the Netherlands, Spain, Portugal and Central and Eastern Europe. The series is distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution.


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.

The Starfleet crew residing in the “lower decks” of the U.S.S. Cerritos includes Ensign Beckett Mariner, voiced by Tawny Newsome; Ensign Brad Boimler, voiced by Jack Quaid; Ensign Tendi, voiced by Noël Wells; and Ensign Rutherford, voiced by Eugene Cordero. The Starfleet characters that comprise the U.S.S. Cerritos’ bridge crew include Captain Carol Freeman, voiced by Dawnn Lewis; Commander Jack Ransom, voiced by Jerry O’Connell; Lieutenant Shaxs, voiced by Fred Tatasciore; and Doctor T’Ana, voiced by Gillian Vigman.

Season four of STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS is produced by CBS’ Eye Animation Productions, CBS Studios’ animation arm; Secret Hideout; and Roddenberry Entertainment. Secret Hideout’s Alex Kurtzman, Roddenberry Entertainment’s Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth and Katie Krentz (219 Productions) serve as executive producers alongside creator and showrunner Mike McMahan. Aaron Baiers (“Secret Hideout”), who brought McMahan to the project, also serves as an executive producer. Titmouse (“Big Mouth”), the Emmy Award-winning independent animation production company, serves as the animation studio for the series.

STAR TREK: LOWER DECKS streams exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S. and Latin America and is distributed concurrently by Paramount Global Content Distribution on Amazon Prime Video in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Japan, India and more and in Canada, airs on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and streams on Crave. The series will also be available to stream on Paramount+ in the UK, Australia, Italy, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and South Korea later this year.


Developed by Emmy® Award winners Kevin and Dan Hageman (“Trollhunters” and “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.

Season two of STAR TREK: PRODIGY is from CBS’ Eye Animation Productions, CBS Studios’ animation arm; Nickelodeon Animation, led by president of animation Ramsey Naito; Secret Hideout; and Roddenberry Entertainment. Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin, Aaron Baiers, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth serve as executive producers, alongside co-showrunners Kevin and Dan Hageman. Ben Hibon directs, executive produces and serves as the creative lead of the animated series. Aaron Waltke and Patrick Krebs also currently serve as co-executive producers.

The STAR TREK: PRODIGY voice cast includes Kate Mulgrew (Hologram Kathryn Janeway), Brett Gray (Dal), Ella Purnell (Gwyn), Rylee Alazraqui (Rok-Tahk), Angus Imrie (Zero), Jason Mantzoukas (Jankom Pog), Dee Bradley Baker (Murf) and John Noble (The Diviner).

STAR TREK: PRODIGY currently streams exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., Latin America, Australia, South Korea, Italy and the U.K. and is coming soon to Paramount+ in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and France as well as to Nickelodeon international channels, which are available in 180 countries globally. In Canada, it airs on Bell Media’s CTV Sci-Fi Channel and streams on Crave. STAR TREK: PRODIGY is distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution.

Star Trek Release Dates: When to Expect All the New and Returning Shows

James Whitbrook

Trying to keep track of what’s coming in the realm of Star Trek  feels like trying to stop a tribble from procreating. Before even more new series are announced, here’s our guide of when to expect all the new Star Trek shows , as well as returning familiar favorites , and what else is in the works right now. Engage!

This post was last updated 7/14/23.

Currently Airing: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 2

The Enterprise is back after a successful first season , and this time Captain Kirk will be along for the ride with another appearance by Paul Wesley after his surprise finale role in season one. Not much else is known about the season so far, other than one episode will see the show crossover with Star Trek: Lower Decks in a live-action/animated hybrid directed by The Next Generation’s Jonathan Frakes. The show has also been renewed for a third season .

Season two recaps:

“ The Broken Circle ”

“ Ad Astra per Aspera ”

“ Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow ”

“ Among the Lotus Eaters ”

“ Charades ”

Upcoming: Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 4

Image: Paramount

The third season of the animated series following the misfit crew of the USS Cerritos—and in particular its cadre of ensigns, Mariner (Tawny Newsome), Boimler (Jack Quaid), Tendi (Noël Wells), and Rutherford (Eugene Cordero)—once again followed our heroic ensigns and the remaining bridge officers aboard the Cerritos. Season four will be arriving in late summer. The show has also been renewed for a fifth season .

Upcoming: Star Trek: Discovery Season 5

Image: Paramount

Expected in early 2024, Discovery’s fifth season will be 10 episodes long, down from the 13 of prior seasons. In the wake of season four‘s climax earlier this year , Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) led her crew in a desperate attempt to save the galaxy from a mysterious anomaly created by an extra-galactic race, ensuring peace and stability for the Federation once more… for now. As her romantic partner Book (David Ajala) pays time for his own role in a campaign to surreptitiously destroy that anomaly, we’re not sure what awaits Burnham and Discovery’s crew just yet, but given this show, we’re sure it’ll be very, very dramatic.

In Flux: Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2

Image: Nickelodeon/Paramount+

The animated series aimed at younger Trek fans (and Janeway fans!) and kids at heart can be found on both Nickelodeon and Paramount+. The first season was divided into two parts, with part two wrapping up at the end of 2022; after Paramount+ announced it would not move forward with the show’s already greenlit season two , it was removed from the service . ( A home release of the complete first season is still possible ; the first 10 episodes are still available for purchase.) Fans are still waiting to hear if Prodigy season two will surface on a different outlet .

Upcoming: Starfleet Academy

It’s really happening! After a long tease, filming on this series will begin in 2024. Here’s the official announcement from co-showrunners and executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Noga Landau:

“Admission is now open to Starfleet Academy! Explore the galaxy! Captain your destiny! For the first time in over a century, our campus will be re-opened to admit individuals a minimum of 16 Earth years (or species equivalent) who dream of exceeding their physical, mental and spiritual limits, who value friendship, camaraderie, honor and devotion to a cause greater than themselves. The coursework will be rigorous, the instructors among the brightest lights in their respective fields, and those accepted will live and study side-by-side with the most diverse population of students ever admitted. Today we encourage all who share our dreams, goals and values to join a new generation of visionary cadets as they take their first steps toward creating a bright future for us all. Apply today! Ex Astris, Scientia!”

Upcoming (movie): Star Trek: Section 31

Image: Paramount

Announced as a TV series back in 2019 as a spinoff for fan-favorite Discovery guest star Michelle Yeoh, this plunge into the seediest side of Starfleet—the shadowy spy organization Section 31 first introduced in Deep Space Nine—is now planned as a Paramount+ film .

Newly minted Oscar winner Yeoh will return as former emperor of the Mirror Universe’s Terran Empire, Phillipa Georgiou, now turned into a kinder, but still kickass person by her time with Michael Burnham. “I’m beyond thrilled to return to my Star Trek family and to the role I’ve loved for so long,” Yeoh said in a statement. “Section 31 has been near and dear to my heart since I began the journey of playing Philippa all the way back when this new golden age of Star Trek launched. To see her finally get her moment is a dream come true in a year that’s shown me the incredible power of never giving up on your dreams. We can’t wait to share what’s in store for you, and until then: live long and prosper (unless Emperor Georgiou decrees otherwise)!”

Written by Craig Sweeny and directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi, Star Trek: Section 31 will start production later this year, and eventually come to Paramount+.

star trek new show 2023

The “Star Trek” universe continues to expand, with fan favorites returning and new shows (and worlds) to explore on the Paramount+ streaming service even as “Star Trek: Picard” comes to an end.

“Strange New Worlds” and “Lower Decks” are eyeing a summer return, with “Prodigy” slated for a winter release.

They’re also several projects in development, including a “Starfleet Academy” focusing on young cadets, and a “Section 31” movie centered around Michelle Yeoh’s deliciously evil anti-hero from “Discovery.”

Below we run down every upcoming new “Star Trek” TV series coming to Paramount+.

Star Trek In 2023: What We’re Most Looking Forward To

star trek new show 2023

| January 1, 2023 | By: TrekMovie Editors 148 comments so far

After reflecting back on the year that was , we’re going to look ahead to the next one. There is a lot to look forward to in the world of Star Trek in 2023. Sometimes we know exactly when they’re coming, sometimes we don’t so we’re guessing, but we remain, in true Star Trek form, optimistic about what’s to come.

In no particular order, here’s what the TrekMovie team is most excited about…

Next Gen cast returning for Picard season 3 (February)

After two mixed-bag seasons, Star Trek: Picard is getting revived for a third and final season under new management with showrunner Terry Matalas reengineering the show to give fans the “proper sendoff” for the TNG crew tha t Star Trek: Nemesis didn’t. But star Sir Patrick Stewart cautions us not to call it a “reunion,” as his former crew are fully integrated into the story, which promises some dramatic tension. Hyped as a cinematic and emotional season, it’s worth being cautiously optimistic the third time is going to be the charm.

Carol Kane on Strange New Worlds season 2 (May?)

It’s doubtful that anyone had this on their predictions list: Academy Award nominee Carol Kane will be appearing on SNW in a recurring role to play Pelia, a new engineer on the Enterprise (filling the sad gap left by Hemmer’s death in season 1). Kane is an actress who shines onscreen no matter who she’s playing and always brings something special to the table—check out Taxi, The Princess Bride, Dog Day Afternoon, Scrooged, Annie Hall, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, just for starters.

The  Strange New Worlds / Lower Decks crossover

Another big highlight for the second season of SNW will be the first major crossover of the new era of Star Trek shows. Lower Decks stars Jack Quaid and Tawny Newsome broke the news when they crashed the Strange New Worlds panel at San Diego Comic-Con revealing they will appear in live action as Boimler and Mariner on board the USS Enterprise (and Pike will get animated too). To make it even better, the episode was directed by none other than Jonathan Frakes. Counting the days!

T’Lyn on  Lower Decks season 4 (August?)

Season 3 of  Lower Decks delivered the fun news that T’Lyn (voiced by Gabrielle Ruiz and first seen in season 2’s excellent “wej Duj”) has joined the Cerritos crew to be part of the senior science offer training program alongside a very enthusiastic Ensign Tendi. Viewed as “unstable” by her Vulcan crewmates aboard the Sh’vhal, she’s likely to get the opposite reputation on the Cerritos. Showrunner Mike McMahan said he couldn’t wait to write it , and we can’t wait to watch.

Tendi and T'Lyn in the Star Trek: Lower Decks season 3 finale

More legacy characters in Prodigy season 2 (October?)

The first season of Star Trek: Prodigy just wrapped up, with big events setting up a whole new dynamic for season 2, focused on the search for Chakotay on board Admiral Janeway’s new ship . Now that the show has moved back into the Federation, season 2 looks like it will have even more canon connections; the producers have told us we can expect “some really wild, fun, legendary characters coming back.” Looks like Janeway may have some familiar help guiding the young “warrant officers in training” in season 2.

star trek new show 2023

A new fun tone for Discovery season 5 (November?)

Assuming Paramount+ can at least get it started sometime in 2023, Star Trek: Discovery looks to be pivoting again for its fifth season. Letting go of the galaxy-ending stakes that have been a hallmark of the previous four seasons, the new one promises a “ tonal shift ,” moving away from all that heaviness for “more of an action-adventure sort of season” focused on a big mystery that is a bit of a quest or treasure hunt… think Indiana Jones in space.

Nerf Phasers (December)

One of the fun surprise announcements of 2022 was from Hasbro, who are planning on releasing their first-ever Nerf product for Star Trek in 2023. The limited edition release actually includes two TNG-era Nerf phasers: The Star Trek Starfleet Type 3 Phaser Motorized Blaster with Lights & Sounds and the Starfleet Type 2 Phaser. Like with the first wave of new Playmates roleplay toys, it’s great to have Star Trek stuff you can play with again.

Star Trek: Resurgence (April)

Originally expecting a 2022 release, we are still excited about this upcoming narrative adventure game set in the post-Nemesis  era . Coming to PC and Console, Resurgence will be a story-based game designed to be accessible to a wide audience. A preview at Comic-Con 2022 was impressive and the new IDW prequel comic tie-in is setting the stage and introducing the characters.   

star trek new show 2023

Star Trek: Defiant (March)

IDW blew us away in 2022 with their new ongoing series entitled simply Star Trek, and in March, it gets a “dark and edgy” spinoff called Star Trek: Defiant , described as “ The Dirty Dozen meets Star Trek .” IDW’s Star Trek editor Heather Antos said that they have “comics’ biggest Star Trek fans at the helm of the biggest and boldest interconnected comics story ever.” If that’s true and even more Star Trek comics are coming as part of a “cinematic universe,” 2023 is shaping up to be a banner year for comics fans. Plus, with Worf leading a Defiant crew that includes Ro Laren!, Lore!!, and Spock!!!, how could you not be excited?

star trek new show 2023

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds: The High Country (February)

2023 will see the first novel tie-in to Strange New Worlds with The High Country from John Jackson Miller, who wrote our favorite Trek book of 2021 ( Picard: Rogue Elements ). The new book is set sometime during the first season of the show and will see the return of Hemmer. We can’t wait.

Paramount Pictures announcing plans for another movie

Since the release of Star Trek Beyond in 2016, finding the way forward for the Star Trek film franchise has vexed Paramount Pictures, resulting in a number of starts and stops along the way. 2022 brought exciting news early on with the announcement of plans to start shooting a new Kelvin movie by the end of the year for release in Christmas 2023, but that fizzled out and the director exited. That project could still get going, or maybe the studio will pivot to something tied into the Paramount+ shows, or something different entirely, but Star Trek is too important to Paramount to continue to languish. We continue to optimistically hope that something definitive will be announced about the next big screen Trek.

TNG Movies on 4K HDR Blu-ray

After wrapping up the TOS movies on 4K HDR Blu-ray in 2022 , it is expected for Paramount Home Entertainment to move on to the four TNG movies, with a possible release of Generations , First Contact , Insurrection , and Nemesis coming in 2023. It’s been rumored a release could come as early as First Contact Day in April.

Voyager Documentary

Another rollover from 2022, To The The Journey: Looking Back at Star Trek: Voyager is a documentary coming from the same team behind the DS9 doc What We Left Behind , promising the same kind of dive into  Star Trek: Voyager. Production continued in 2022 with more interviews being done as recently as November . We’re hoping that this is the year they put it all together for a deep dive into the Delta Quadrant.

A brand-new Star Trek series announcement

We’ve been hearing whispers ( sometimes loud ones, at big events ) about new Star Trek shows in development. Will it be a Section 31 show with Michelle Yeoh ? A Starfleet Academy series set in the  Discovery era? A spin-off from  Picard featuring legacy stars? A live-action Janeway show ?  Nothing’s been locked in yet , but it seems a good bet that at least one of them is going to get a green light this year.

William Shatner doing something new

In 2021, he swam with sharks and went into space. In 2022, he was praised by Rob Zombie for his cover of “The Great American Nightmare.” No doubt the ninety-one-year-old will come up with something to surprise us this year too, in addition to writing a book or two and releasing that documentary he’s been talking about.

Prodigy merchandise, at last (spring)

Delayed from last year (supply chain issues, you know how it goes these days),  Prodigy toys are on the way from Playmates. A few lucky folks got a small plush Murf at NYCC, but the rest of us will finally be able to join in the fun when we get action figures of Dal, Gwyn, Jankom, Zero, and Murf, and then Rok-Tahk and Holo Janeway before we hit 2024. (Now can we start talking about a plush Rok and a wind-up Zero?)

Season 2 of Gates McFadden’s InvestiGates podcast

Season 1 gave us terrific, unique discussions with Nana Visitor, Michael Dorn, Wil Wheaton, Michael Westmore, Marina Sirtis, Jonathan Frakes, and many more. This year, she’s moving beyond her TNG intimates: Announced guests for season 2 include some captains—William Shatner, Kate Mulgrew, Anson Mount—along with Jack Quaid, Tawny Newsome, John Billingsley, Rosalind Chao, Wilson Cruz, and others yet to be announced.

Patrick Stewart’s memoir

In 2020, Sir Patrick announced that he’s writing his memoir , which he’s finally gotten some time to work on now that production on the final season of  Picard has wrapped. The most recent update came this March, when he said he’d reached page 310 and had a title: Are You Anybody?  There’s no publish date yet, but fingers are crossed we’ll be able to read it before the year is out.

Happy New Year! Can’t wait for more of Gates McFadden’s podcast. I imagine her conversation with Kate Mulgrew will be especially insightful and fun.

All those things are exciting! It’s going to be a great trek year!

I really hope the Section 31 show isn’t the big new series announcement. Section 31 should’ve been left to the shadows in which it operated in DS9. A Starfleet Academy series set during the post-Nemesis era would be nice.

Agreed! No S31 and if they do an Academy show, let it be 25th century, not 32nd.

I am all in for a S31 show. So many different ways this could go. I love the idea of the central character being a naive young officer who is excited about joining the covert spy agency, only to discover the horrific things they do. So much that could be done with political and social allegory there.

Too bad that Trek fans are so narrow minded, short sighted, and bitter. Open you mind!

I’d rather be called narrow-minded than having to endure yet another attempt at depicting “horrific things”… Star Trek doesn’t need that sort of boundary-pushing. There are gazillions of other IPs that can take care of that…

How do you know it won’t be more along the line of a Men In Black thing, where they save the universe, alot. With know one knowing about it. Michelle is awesome so who knows what they’ll come up with

MIB the movies…fun! MIB the comics, in which they actually kill off witnesses…no so much!

AlphaPredator was suggesting something far more in the cynical grimdark realm, tho, and for me that ain’t it. That miserable stuff is so basic, so overdone, it’s everywhere –and I literally get abuse online for not liking it, as though that’s supposed to change my mind?? I would give a Section 31 show a look, tho, because it’s Star Trek. But like when Enterprise came out, if it’s not something I look forward to each week I’ll just slowly stop watching it. (Sorry Enterprise fans out there, I’m glad it was good for you, no hate, I just wasn’t hooked.) And honestly I can understand why they’d want to make a show about such a different part of Starfleet as Section 31 seems to be (I haven’t watched DS9 since it came out so I only know it from Discovery); it’s got to be hard to keep coming up with plots and new spins on old plots for all these shows, all while keeping them fitting that Trek tone. But at the same time if it doesn’t feel genuine, I think a lot of people will tune out. Also, I don’t like the MIB feel of “everyone else is a bunch of ignorant muggles while we who know the truth save the day!” It’s very egotistical and belittling and instills in the audience a false sense superiority (because we’re “in the know” too, see?) instead of curiosity and empathy. I would not enjoy a Section 31 show that basically boiled down to minimizing the rest of Starfleet as a public face that can’t “really get the job done” and all that blah blah. See, it just keeps circling back around to that same cynical justification for illegal and immoral activity that we see from modern governments. And then if it’s countered with the illogical and wet ‘appeal to emotion’ (like my beloved Prodigy used to bring in non-starfleet assistance in their s1 finale) it only emboldens that kind of thinking. So something that avoided and subverted all that would be great. If, uh, any Section 31 writers are lurking out there ;)

lots of the previous shows and movies have had starfleet compromise principles or just been plain wrong regarding policy and it been up to field officers like kirk, picard, sisko and others to hold to Fed values.

ds9 is the very best of ST

“ds9 is the very best of ST”

Not for me. It was good but I didn’t love it the same extend as any ship-based shows.

naive young officer who is excited about joining the covert spy agency, only to discover the horrific things they do. 

I’ll pass. Grim and dark is not particularly compatible with Star Trek.

Agreed, When I want Grimdark I’ll watch the 40k stuff Amazon prime puts together, you know a setting DESIGNED for it

sometimes things are grim and dark in the franchise but then our heroes battle to find a way out of it

I completely disagree. DS9 is the best example of this working very well.

Part of what made S31 work in DS9 was that it outdid the two established secret police/spy agencies (Tal Shiar and Obsidian Order) in terms of keeping itself unknown in-universe to all but a select few.

I think that should be preserved.

I agree section 31 was a fun idea for a shadowy org in an episode or 2 but it’s the classic case of “show too much and you ruin it”

Most of those sound great, though Discovery’s fifth season just sounds goofy. I hope it works better than the last couple of seasons have.

How does it sound any more goofy than most Trek plots? Lol 😆

I’m tempted to agree. Mainly because I’ve never gotten through an Indiana Jones movie, hah! But who knows, I’ll take some light fun each week…

April Fools isn’t for another few months, guys.

We can probably expect two or three different announcements.

It’s interesting that we ended the year with no live action series renewals or announcements. Currently there are no new star trek seasons currently in production or greenlit for production in 2023, that includes Lower Decks. They are all in post production right now, or in the can. There is still plenty in the queue, but things are probably going to start thinning out for ’24.

I’ve noticed that, too. SNW, for example, had their second season greenlit during production of season one. Now nothing. Maybe it has something to do with some of the business challenges all streamers are facing. Series orders are down across the industry. I’ve seen one rumor that Paramount wants to sell the ST IP, but there’s no other scuttlebut about any such thing, so I don’t put much weight in that.

I hope those rumors are just that. A change in ownership could lead to a horrific change in publication policy. The new IP owner might go all Disney and never release the new shows on BluRay and DVD. And honestly, then I don’t need any more Trek. I don’t want Trek that I cannot own and collect! That has already ruined Star Wars for me…

Hard to tell what might come of that. It really depends on who bought it and what they would want to do with it. Thing is, Paramount Global could probably use some cash since the feds killed the Simon & Schuster deal.

Paramount and WB are the only studios that regularly release TV shows on physical media. And I guess it won’t be WB… The most likely candidates I reckon are Disney, Amazon or Netflix and that means no more physical media for Trek… So yeah, I really hope this isn’t true.

I can see Apple being interested, but they might want all of Paramount. Indeed, one of the rumors around surrounding the Viacom/CBS merger was that it was done with an eye toward putting the new entity up for sale.

Russian bootleggers will be more than happy to sell you copies of all those Star Wars shows.

There is a significant spending retreat happening in streaming and I know Paramount+ is especially vulnerable so it’s possible they are suspending renewals and re-evaluating. Unless executives are pessimistic about season 2 of SNW, I still expect that show to get a renewal soon. If not, than the franchise might be on the hook.

That’s true, but I also sense Paramount just doesn’t see ST as a priority. While they’re mum on new ST, they have two additional Yellowstone spinoffs in development.

They don’t really need to rush

Oh, a tonal shift to lighter storytelling promised for Discovery! Feels like 2020 again :D

Discovery has had a difficult time shedding the CW melodramatic tone, and the Arrowverse-style hallway conversations.

It’s not just the repetitive ‘galaxy ending threat that can only be solved by the chosen one’ trope that’s hurting it.

I know that the target audience is younger than I, but not even our teens like that stuff. I wonder if it’s original core audience is ageing out of the show.

I’ll be cutting see how this adventure plot plays out. I’m sceptical always about Trek captains riding fast vehicles, especially across bumpy desert. The only good versions so far we’ve seen have been deliberate animated camp.

More, Discovery hasn’t been able, since Paradise took the reins, to help itself from grinding suspense and dramatic tension to an absolute halt by taking an inexplicable and ill timed break for a three minute heart to heart. Emotional moments can be great, but they shouldn’t completely squelch momentum. If they don’t stall out for too many earnest hallway conversations, it may work.

Yeah Discovery is a narrative and acting mess. I liked season one and I loved season two other than the end but things fell apart fast after that. Seasons three and four have been largely forgettable and Michael Burnham has become insufferable. I’ll still watch it because I don’t dislike the show despite my criticism of it but right now it’s only about a inch above Picard for me on the list of current Star Trek shows, in second-to-last place.

Yep totally agreed as well. Like others, I just think Michelle Paradise is an awful show runner. She took what should’ve been a really exciting prospect, having a show in the far future and made it really boring, tedious and overly emotional. I don’t know what can ‘save’ Discovery at this point if you’re not a fan already but I just think the show needs to be completely rethought at this point. I don’t mean throwing it in the 43rd century or anything, but the format is just not working IMO. No one seems all that excited about season 5 for a reason. And if it’s more of the same, it could be the first show I might stop watching. Not completely, just wait for the season to end and binge it assuming it gets passed season 5.

Or 2018. Or 2019. Or 2021…

Not a plug on purpose, but 7th Rule podcast with Cirroc Lofton (Jake Cisco) has begun TNG watchthrough feating Denise Crosby and it’s been great doing DS9 with them and they do new show coverage too. With loads of great special guests.

Yes! Super excited about Denise joining them and I’ve enjoyed many of their episodes. They have fantastic guests too… no argument here. Love the mix of covering old Trek and new Trek.

I sincerely hope they will finally come around to release the long-awaited SNW soundtrack! I’ve been looking for news ever since Melumad teased its release back in June last year!

Yes! I’m Waiting for it too!

Please let it be Section 31! Don’t listen to the haters! Been literally waiting years now since this was first announced! Michelle Yeoh as emperor georgiou is on of the best trek characters ever! Georgiou is easily the strongest female character ever, on trek! We need more strong women! I also have my fingers crossed for a Janeway/Voyager cast series return! And I definitely need more raffi/7 of 9 in my life! I so want to watch 7 introduce raffi to Janeway! Please, please, please!!

Yeah if they come up with something like a temporal prime directive episodic story line for a redeemed Section 31 and Georgiou, then I really think this can fly!

Captain Georgiou of the Starship Shenzou was awesome and likeable. I know it was more fun for Michelle Yeoh to play the evil Empress, but she played the diabolical character so well, she was completely unlikeable.

In the meantime, the global star continued to act in various outstanding projects that may have simpy made her too big for a Star Trek streaming show.

Maybe it is simply time to scrap the Sec31 series and instead start planning a time travel Star Trek Section 31 motion picture staring an international superstar! We shall see!

It’s obvious they know fans are not big on the Section 31 show and yeah Georgiou is just too unlikeable in the fanbase even if people like the actress herself. No one seems to remotely miss her being on Discovery which says a lot considering she was there for three seasons.

And I think we seen a very different direction of the franchise since they announced that show. S31 was the first spin off show announced, but that was during a time when they were going with the darker/bleak vibe we got with Discovery and then Picard. Since then when fans rejected this tone, it’s gone back to the cheery optimistic vibe we got with shows like Lower Decks, Prodigy and SNW. And that formula seems to be winning. Even season 3 of Picard is suppose to be more TNG in tone and spirit. You wouldn’t know that from the trailers lol, but that’s what they are saying, so we’ll see.

So that’s the thing, the franchise has pivoted more to the classic shows again that’s about optimism and exploration and I’m guessing they want to keep going that direction since they are getting a lot of positive feedback, especially with SNW. Now they can still make the show exactly as they planned and since there are more lighter shows on, they can argue this one can mix things up in the line up sort of like what DS9 did back in the previous era. So it can still happen, but I don’t think it’s a big push to get it on the air when people are way more interested in a Janeway/Seven show or just more TOS/TNG type of shows like we got with SNW. That’s probably why S31 got pushed back in the placed, they listened to the fans and replaced it with SNW and it was definitely the way to go. I don’t think anyone can argue that, even if you’re not a fan of SNW.

People just want more comfort food Star Trek again…hence season 3 of Picard and the last three shows.

Agreed with everything you’ve said. S31 would be so 2019… The course corrections they’ve made since then are obvious. I don’t think they’ll jeopardize that by throwing money at a DOA project. They’d be better off giving SNW 20 eps per season instead…

They might surprise us and still give us the show, but it’s now been over 4 years since they announced it and probably just have more appealing ideas that they know fans will be excited to watch and more ‘Trek-y’ which all these new shows are dyed in the wool.

I agree with everything you said. Yet, having a global star like Yeoh interested in doing a Star Trek show or even a movie, should not be wasted. It will all depend on coming up with the right show.

Fans like me (who love SNW, Prodigy, are interested in the LDs crossover and cant wait to see what Matalas has in store for Picard and the TNG cast in roughly 40 days) are only going to be around for so long. They really need to try and expand their domestic and global audience.

Discovery clearly is targeting women and both gender and racial minorities. I do know women who had no interest in Star Trek have watched Discovery. If they can continue to target that audience, but with the tone and format that interests legacy fans like me, that would be ideal.

If they can do the same, but specifically target the Asian and global market with an international star like Yeoh, then I think it is worth it.

Having Yeoh is okay but the issue is the character and context. That character is completely muddled with all the time-travel / multiverse mumbo-jumbo. And on top of that. the worst ever Trek idea is having former dictators as Section 31 operatives. Didn’t work for Khan and certainly not for Georgiou. It’s ridiculous. Can you imagine a secret service employing Stalin, Hitler or Pol Pot?

That’s my issue too, yeah. Georgiou turned out to be dull and broadly written, and Yeoh was not overly interesting in the role. She may be a big star, but she was kind of a dud on Star Trek. I know she has fans and that’s fine, but I’d be happy to not see her return. Her sendoff with the Guardian of Forever was a great conclusion to her arc.

Tiger2, this board, and even a good hunk of Reddit, aren’t necessarily representative of the audience Paramount would target with S31.

I’m really doubtful if we can say here what fans want or don’t. As you’ve observed in the past, we’re really just a few dozen mostly older fans here, and mostly male.

While many of us will watch whatever Trek shows are made regardless, Paramount+ needs a Trek that draws in young adults that watch its other shows.

Now the Netflix-ish obsession with dystopian streaming shows may be waning as a decade after Discovery was first in development, but spy series with a lot of action are very popular. Reworking S31 into a less dystopian Trek franchise spy series would fill a gap in Paramount’s line up regardless of how much old fans like us might dislike it on principle.

I understand your point, but let’s not kid ourselves, dude if there was a huge groundswell for this show, the show probably would’ve been in production ages ago. You don’t announce a show back in 2019 only to watch four other shows that was announced AFTER get developed and on the air it if people were really begging for this show to happen.

I get it, you seem to really want the show. I notice you are always pushing for it to happen. And as I said, it can still happen obviously. But I’m just looking at reality. Remember, Alex Kurtzman has said multiple times he READS these sites. He wants fan input. And that’s been very very clear he follows what most fans seem to want or not want. It’s been obvious from second season of Discovery through now that practically every decision he’s followed what majority of fans have been hollering about. He admitted they changed the Klingons because of all the backlash online. We have multiple post-Nemesis shows because fans were sick of prequels and reboots and wanted to go forward again. Discovery is only in the 32nd century now because fans complained of canon issues and wasn’t happy it was in the 23rd century.

And the biggest example is obviously SNW itself. And think about it, for every place like here where fans were begging for a Pike show, the same places people were highly divided or plain negative about a Section 31 show. It’s not rocket science, they obviously saw the show people were pushing for online to have and it simply won out.

And you’re talking to someone who was adamant that we weren’t going to even get SNW anytime soon because they kept pushing the idea that S31 was still in the works. At the time, I was convinced S31 was still coming. Remember all the things they were saying at the time? They already set up a writers room and they had planned to start that show after Discovery’s third season. That all went away once SNW was announced. They still keep saying it might happen, but when??? Discovery has now finished its fifth season, everyone is talking about what the new 25th century show could be about but not a peep about S31.

So yeah. We’ll see. But like the next movie, we been seeing and waiting for literally years now.

Word. The Star Trek franchise has vastly improved since the Section 31 announcement, thanks to Lower Decks, Prodigy, Strange New Worlds, and the tonal shift for Picard season three. For them to now return to a Discovery spinoff about Section 31 and a boring character like Georgiou would be a step backwards for a lot of fans, and I think CBS have realized that.

Yeah, again I’m just reading the vibe from social media and boards like this and all I’m getting is fans want more stuff like LDS, PRO and SNW. And less Discovery and Picard’s season one tones. And I didn’t have an issue with Picard’s tone in season one but many did.

Now of course it doesn’t mean S31 would just be a dystopian like show like a lot of people are assuming but the nature of organization doesn’t scream uplifting and optimistic either and I just think it would be another divisive show even if it’s good.

Only by the most basic and outdated measure of strong female character. A phrase that itself is now (rightly) considered obsolete and limiting, its use far too focused on violence, masculinity, and invulnerability. Sorry, but the original Georgiou was great and killing her off was very limiting. They made Mirror Georgiou SO evil that bringing her to the show as a regular and expecting us to buy her redemption (esp. happening largely in the background) was a huge stretch that didn’t connect. (Thus her farewell scene feeling like it was more for the actress than the character.) I’m all for a chaotic neutral or former baddie truth-teller on a redemption arc, love it, it’s a role that should go to more female characters as well, but they sacrificed any believability for that kind of plot for this specific character for the watercooler shock moment of seeing Georgiou in the seat of the Terran emperor. They could have avoided this by simply not making her so powerful in the Mirror U, so in charge, and so unrepentant and nasty. (They could have even made up a new alt universe rather than the OTT weirdness that is the Mirror U.) But I don’t think they actually had a coherent long term PLAN, and it shows. I would also add that, imho, Michelle Yeoh is just as much a joy to watch playing good characters. I want to see her bring out her sweet, funny, and silly side more, too, and again that’s something we could have had with the original Georgiou but feels out of place with the mirror one .

Why label people “haters” just because they find the idea of Section 31 boring? Gatekeeping isn’t needed so please stop. You might like the idea but that doesn’t mean you should be slinging insults at those who don’t.

I find it deeply ironic that you are telling people off for slinging insults when all you do to people who don’t share your worldview is attack and belittle them.

Since that is patently untrue, your response is moot. I have never mocked or belittled people for having a different worldview. Not even once. I am a long-time poster here and have always championed people not being gatekeepers and not being intolerant of different opinions. Any time I see someone denouncing or denigrating fans for liking or disliking shows, I always remind them not to gatekeep. I have a long history of pointing out that people have a right to like or dislike shows as they please, and that there’s nothing wrong with that. I defy you to prove otherwise, which you obviously can’t. Also, random troll, I have no idea who you are, which tells me we haven’t interacted much. So either you’re confusing me with someone else, or else you’re just trying to pick a fight. Either way, buzz off.

Discovery S5 and Picard S3 are the shows I’m most looking forward too.

Same here, along with Lower Decks Season 4!

New movie (Kelvin/Prime) announced early this year for release summer or xmas 2024? or will they just wait for 60th ann?

Damnit, Beyond really fubar’d the movie franchise worse than Nemesis!

Beyond was the best of the 3. Into Darkness screwed things up so much even Beyond couldn’t save it.

lol. no its the other way around

They need to just give up on the Kelvinverse. Everyone has moved on. I think a post-Nemsis legacy movie is where it’s at, personally. Use a movie budget to build some Deep Space Nine sets that could then be reused for a series.

Yeah I could see a return to ‘Prime-verse’ movie but with some (not all) kelvin actors (so like Generations), Pine be too expensive, Saldana too busy with Avatar/Marvel, so in my movie idea it’d be just Quinto (like Nimoy in ST09) somehow emerging in the primeverse Picard era and various TNG/DS9/Voy legacy characters and a couple of new (to make up about 7). Basically like a reverse of ST09 lol, but probably P+ only as that all sounds budget/fan only for a proper cinema movie (which would be all the kelvin cast and the big Prime players for a timetravel/multiverse epic like XMen DOFP – unless they planning something like that to go big for 2026)

No one cares about the Kelvin movies anymore minus a few people meaning it will probably just bomb again and Paramount knows it. Their time ran out circa 2013 when Star Trek Into Disaster made a lot of people stop caring and we got Beyond next which killed it after that.

Make a cheaper post-Nemesis movie with legacy characters like you said. You’re never going to get a big audience or a lot of new people to care about these movies. So make something for fans again like the old days.

Again, it’s Paramount’s fault. They squandered these movies on a major level. They waited for years after the first one and then instead of STID being something that’s about exploration or just a fun action adventure story introducing a new species or something, they doubled down on yet another villain wants to take down the Federation trope and did it with a white Khan in the process and people just lost interest.

I don’t see another movie making anymore than between $350-400 million total (and that’s still MORE what than Beyond did). And my guess is Paramount probably has around the same projections and why they can’t get the money to make another one. No one is moving heaven and earth to make a movie that will make less money than Avatar 2 made in it’s opening weekend alone even if it eeks out a small profit.

But love of Kahless, if we get another movie before 2030, just do something DIFFERENT and ORIGINAL! And hopefully with a new cast of characters.

But like I said, I just stop caring. Make one, don’t make one, I don’t care either way anymore.

 or will they just wait for 60th ann? Beyond really fubar’d the movie franchise worse than Nemesis!

And they even didn’t use the movie to celebrate the 50th anniversary…

The movie announced is basically a nonreality.

The director has left for Marvel. None of the cast were ever booked.

Why Paramount would make an announcement and schedule a release date without booking the cast is inexplicable, but it’s been established that it happened.

One gets the sense that some kind of weird contractual commitment with Bad Robot that required greenlighting by a certain date might have been in play. That’s purely my personal speculation but there must have been some financial driver for what otherwise was a completely subrational announcement decision.

Yes, Paramount totally screwed up on that one. Officially announcing the movie without anyone signed aboard? What idiot thought THAT was a good idea?

Apparently the ‘new’ regime who seems to think if you just announce a movie will happen without the actors, script or money in place first, it will still happen…eventually

I can’t believe people could be THIS incompetent. It’s amazing.

Beyond didn’t fubar anything. Many fans and critics consider it the best of the three. Into Darkness is what fubared it, because Paramount lost a lot of fans who didn’t come back for the third movie after that fiasco.

Beyond is the one that bombed though. ;)

As much as people claim to hate STID, it is actually the biggest film out of the three. It isn’t saying much, but it at least made money. Beyond lost money and only the second one in the franchise to do so.

I disagree, i think lots of fans (aside some vocal hard core trekkies) and especially general audiences were fine with ID, it made close to 500m a record for Trek (bit less than 09 in US but no biggie, still good for Trek), but Beyond just looked all kinds of meh with that early Fast&Furious in space trailer (a bad time for a meh trailer in front of the seismic event of the return of the original Star Wars), then the general lack of promotion bar an improved trailer and that 50th event, but ultimately the film wasn’t that interesting for audiences with very little ‘hooks’ for fans and casuals aside it being just another Star Trek film, like TNGs last 2 films (whereas ID had intriguing trailers, cool looking action/destruction, mystery of the villain, JJ directing again etc)

I agree with all of this. And I just think it’s more nuance than anything. I have said this many many MANY times lol. I think for long time fans, STID was more of a negative. But for new fans (or general audiences as you put it), it was a much bigger positive. If you didn’t know who Khan was before, then it’s not going to matter to you the way it is to a fan who looks at Montalban’s Khan as nearly iconic (and the reason why it was just a silly idea to even do).

The opposite seems to be the case with Beyond. Long time fans seem to like it more and yes for many they seem to feel it was the most Trek-y out off the three. But new fans there was really nothing about it to interest them. That seemed sadly part of the problem, it was a more Star Trek story where as the first two films had elements of Star Wars and bigger action.

And looking at the scores of IMDB seems to bare this out.

STID: 7,7 audience score STB: 7.0 audience score

So while on all the Trek sites sees STID as a failure that destroyed the momentum of the Kelvin (and as people have suggested here), I do think it’s a bit more complicated. I even blamed STID that lead to people being less interested in the next movie, but I’m speaking in terms of old fans. But if I’m being honest, I think Beyond didn’t really excite new or old fans that much. Sure I think more long time fans enjoyed the movie over STID, but the problem is most of them just waited for the film to come to Blu Ray or cable to make that assessment. Many probably stayed home after that really bad trailer. And while the second was better, still nothing to get that excited about. And if STID already soured them, then even more so. But many more saw STID in the theater because there was just more interest/hype at the time.

So it’s really no wonder why it will be 7 years this year we still haven’t gotten another movie; the longest in Trek’s films history sadly. There is just no more hype for these movies for newer or old fans.

Really looking forward to most of the shows actually. Obviously Picard season 3 is the big one for probably many fans. It probably would be bigger if the show wasn’t so divisive the last two seasons but fingers crossed. Very excited about about the Lower Decks and SNW crossover. I think it’s going to be tons of fun and of course can’t wait for both shows returning. Prodigy has become my favorite show out of all the modern shows so yeah, truly excited for more!

As far as a new show, I’m pretty much open to anything (although still skeptical of Section 31) but I really want to know the show that’s going to replace Picard. I think that’s the one most fans are most curious about. And what legacy characters will be part of it? On that front I’m open to literally anyone. I don’t care if they are from Voyager, TNG, DS9, etc just give us more. ;)

As far as the next movie….lol! That’s all I have to say on that. Biggest irony they were suppose to be making one right now. Maybe some day they will figure something out. I just don’t care anymore.

I’m looking forward to hearing what new shows are being greenlighted. I hope it will be soon. I also hope we’ll hear that SNW season three is going into production soon.

As I said in the Prodigy finale thread, I’m concerned that the Picard season 3 premiere is being held until mid February. It seems like a signal that the people doing the scheduling are wanting to draw out the release of shows already produced.

The promise of new episodes year round seems fragile just now.

The two animated series are long lead times and there’s no word about new seasons after those well advanced in post.

SNW and Discovery likewise have been in post a long time with no hint of preproduction for further seasons.

I hate to be the glass half full person but there seems to have been some kind of pause at the level of the streamer.

It could be just an adjustment period to let the new subscribers in the EU catch up, but for a streamer that’s got a stated strategy of relying on franchises, this seems off. Or, it could just be that Paramount is saving some big announcements for the winter investors meetings.

Yeah I not only fully agree with your points about future season announcements being stalled, I have been thinking about that since LDS ended last season. It is a little odd they have not announced any new seasons for LDS, SNW or PRO yet. Yeah maybe it’s nothing, we know they are ALL coming back for another season, so maybe it’s more about waiting for those seasons to run before announcing the next one. But it is a little weird considering it’s been the opposite since Picard started and then been jumping ahead to announce seasons.

But then I do remember LDS they never officially announced the fourth season. It’s true, we were never given an announcement in advance with that show for some reason, they announced it after it was already in production. So it could be the same thing here too.

That is me looking at it as the glass half full, but yes it could be the opposite and maybe some of these shows could be on the cancellation block. Streaming is such a different animal than traditional TV because traditional TV was really about the here and now. If the show was successful today, that’s all that mattered. If it wasn’t, it was cancelled. But streaming is all about building libraries and enhancing your IPs. They have to think about both today and tomorrow. This is just my guess (and I hope I’m wrong), but I don’t think any of these Star Trek shows are pulling in tons of people or new viewers. Certainly enough to be successful and a steady flow of people subscribing just to watch these shows, but I don’t think the viewership is jumping higher with each new show either. Just keeping the same flow of people whose been watching since Discovery and Picard probably with some spikes here and there.

And as much as many seem to love LDS and PRO, they probably do get less views from average fans since most are more invested in the live action shows for obvious reasons. But same time, those shows are probably muuuuch cheaper to produce as well, so it balances itself out.

So I don’t think the five shows a year will go on forever, especially as that site just get more popular and bigger shows. I notice Paramount+ reported that new show, 1923, got 7 million viewers for it’s premiere episode. I guess that’s really big for a streaming site to get. But to this day they have not reported any numbers for ANY of the Star Trek shows. Not one. Again we know they are popular enough because we have five of them lol. But as I said, I do feel maybe not at a level they can crow about. Picard and SNW had TONS of fanfare coming in, you would think they would be shouting how big those shows did. They put out releases saying it was their biggest shows on the site, but since they are not reporting the actual numbers, its probably not on the level the bigger franchises do. Good for Star Trek but not bonafide good viewing wise.

That said, I think ALL the shows (minus Picard obviously) will get more seasons. But that’s probably not going to be a guarantee in the near future either.

I wouldn’t read too much into that Tiger2.

Looking at the most rapid outside source, Parrot Analytics, 1923 isn’t pulling nearly the relative demand numbers that either Discovery or SNW do typically.

1923 is in 9th place for breakout streaming series in the past 100 days with 16.8 times typical demand.

Discovery and SNW don’t ever quite get to the top of the streaming originals, but are usually clocking 33 times average during their runs. More, these market research and social media estimates have been proven to line up closely with the Nielsen numbers that come out about a month late for streaming.

Other important and cool stats from Parrot Analytics show that Paramount+ relies much more heavily on content it makes itself vs other streamers: 83.4% vs under 10 % for all the others.

Well OK, I’ll take your word for it.

But it’s not illegal to just post numbers of how many people view your shows.

You mention the Nilesn’s chart which Disney+, Hulu, Peacok, Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc are all on these days. The only major site NOT on it appears to be Paramount+.

There could be some business reason why they aren’t, IDK, but we wouldn’t need places like Parrot Analytics if they simply showed the numbers. Maybe they feel their shows are not getting the same views a Netflix or Disney+ is. I’m guessing neither is Peacock but they are on it as well.

And I don’t know how good that number is for 1923, even though I been talking about streaming endlessly for five years now., But so much about it still baffles me lol. I don’t know how many views are considered a ‘good’ show or movie, how long do they look at numbers, ie, the first day, over a week, a month, etc since streaming is not like TV and stuff just stays up there and doesn’t disappear after a day, Or even how much does gaining new subscriptions factor in favor of show’s or movie success? I always assumed that was a big factor but again, no clue if it is or isn’t.

So I don’t know. But I do know we’ve had 5 new Trek shows and about 130 episodes produced by them so far but complete black hole on how they are doing by the people who makes them. Again, as I said, obviously they are doing well enough if they keep getting renewed, but who knows what that really means in terms of overall or new viewers? I’m not like some posters around here throwing out BS claims which shows are attracting ‘new viewers’ based on the shows they basically like because there is no data anywhere from what I know. Maybe SNW for example is drawing tons of new viewers so it’s considered ‘successful’ or maybe it’s actually drawing in the least.

But they are attracting enough viewers I guess now, so whatever it is, it’s good enough.

Nielsen has released numbers on Paramount+ at times.

They’ve looked pretty much like they do on Parrot for the US, but that’s because Paramount+ is the streamer that’s been shown to have its shows most balanced across all the age groups. (Pluto is targeted at older viewers.)

Which is interesting when you also consider that Paramount+ makes in-house a very large proportion of the shows and movies it streams. The ‘menu of shows’ model for the Trek franchise seems to line up closely with the broad audience that P+ is trying to attract, and is apparently successful at getting.

I would note that Nielsen skews ‘old‘ in its statistics because it only measures viewership on actual television setboxes. Younger audiences are more likely to use computers, tablets and phones.

Nielsen nearly lost its accreditation with the advertising industry oversight body because it’s just not reliable as it once was. Not measuring a significant proportion of the target young adult market is a huge failure from the point of view of the advertisers trying to draw that audience.

So, the industry has to rely increasingly on alternative methodologies. The fact that Parrot Analytics and Nielsen line up for the slice of the audience that Nielsen can actually reasonably capture, validates Parrot’s methodology such that it can be looked to for the parts of the audience Nielsen doesn’t capture. More, Parrot can provide comparisons across countries.

OK, fair enough. You have your pulse on this stuff much more than I do. But you were also the one who originally made the point the shows not getting renewed right away might be a concern. But now you’re suggesting they seem to be getting healthy viewership. So I’m a bit confused lol.

But as I said myself, I think ALL of the shows will get another season but like you, I am starting to think this gravy train may not roll on as long as we hope as the site just gets bigger and has more varied content to market.

“I hate to be the glass half full person”

That’s odd! Normally, people hate to be the glass half empty person… 🤷‍♂️ Wear your optimism proudly, I say! 😜

I think that we just ended a really long run of new Trek every week. I have been trying to figure out how long it was, but did it not start in like August 2021 with LD? Then we had Prodigy, Discovery, Picard, SNW, Lower Decks, Prodigy? Other than a few short breaks, we have had 63 episodes in 72 weeks.

LD Season 4 and Prodigy Season 2, from everything I have seen are being produced.

I would expect we will hear more about SNW Season 3 closer to the time the show starts, and probably at some convention.

I do think they are probably weighing Discovery Season 6, and what to do after Picard. I tend to think they will not want to replace two shows at once, and so a Disco Season 6 is probably going to happen.

S31 I think is dead. What I think is likely is that we could see the announcement of a Kirk show- and probably the announcement of a 32nd century Academy show.

One of those could be switched up with a Picard spinoff, which could be Worf, Riker, Geordi, Seven, Janeway, or someone else… although Janeway seems unlikely since Prodigy is now the Janeway show.

I was under the impression that Discovery finished production within the last couple of months or so? It would still be in post? It’s SNW that’s been in post forever.

Yes, Discovery season five started production in the late spring and wrapped in November.

Beyond COVID restrictions, it’s more cost effective not to try to rush the vfx and editing in post the way it was done in the early seasons when the shows premiered while post was still being done on the later episodes.

That said, sitting on shows for a half a year or more between wrap and release to stretch out the schedule seems a bit excessive (even if Paramount+ isn’t the only streamer doing it.)

It’s likely Strange New Worlds will begin streaming its second season right after Picard concludes. I’d expect an announcement on that right before Picard S3 begins. Discovery S5 will also likely begin right after Strange New Worlds S2 ends, with Lower Decks and Prodigy finishing out the year, although Prodigy . Since Prodigy has 20 eps per season, it makes sense to make it the final show for 2023 so it can carry ten weeks over into 2024. Any new series announced this year wouldn’t make it to our screens until at least the end of 2024.

Thanks for the reminder about Carol Kane on SNW! Totally forgot about that. She’s always been so great at playing out there, unique and eccentric characters so hopefully she’ll bring that to the role for some good humour. And live action Boimler and Mariner too, very excited for that. Looking forward to seeing how they bring Sybok into the mix too.

I do have some concerns about Paul Wesley’s Kirk, but we’ll see how that works out – finger’s crossed!

I am totally on hold with Wesley’s Kirk. For two reasons – 1) Wesley and the producers were clear that his inclusion in the finale is an alternate Kirk, and was portrayed purposefully that way, whose experiences differed from Shatner’s Kirk by not having been on the Enterprise and being with Spock for over a year at that point. alt-2266 Spock is portrayed differently than 2260 Spock, so why would alt-2266 Kirk be like the flagship commanding 2266 Kirk. and 2) we all know how we feel about Mount’s Pike – we had expectations of that. Like him or not, Wesley-Kirk also is compared to Pine-Kirk & Shatner-Kirk. That’s not right for <30 minutes of guest star.

Quite frankly, I don’t want Pine-Kirk, or Shatner-Kirk in a modern show.

I’m fine in principle with Kirk being in a different place in his life.

Wesley however brought none of the Kirk energy, charisma, intensity or whatever.

People like that exist in any era. There are other actors in other recent shows in the that have brought this to their characters. Wesley however has not been one of them. In fact has given no evidence of being able to bring that. It’s a legitimate concern.

What i am looking for? Well, when they release the Lower Decks Season 3 Blu-ray here on Germany

I am looking for Paramounts next Trek movie announcement that will crash and burn like the previous ones and make them lose all their pedigree. Also I wonder if one of the new shows announced will be that Klingon show that Michael Dorn has been pitching for so long, since he is officially returning to the franchise in Picard season 3.

A Worf show would be great. If the Picard spinoff includes Worf, then we have a good chance it could also include DS9 folks.

It’s going to be a great year for Star Trek!

(note: I am rolling out my new “name” for 2023 — I was previously One Lion)

Enjoy learning about all these updates. Also, I’m a high school journalism teacher, and I am gritting my teeth on a couple of the sentences here. IDW is a singular comic book company, so IDW should be referred to as an “it” instead of a “their.” Also, Hasbro is an inanimate — and a singular — company; that means Hasbo is a “which” instead of a “who” and (again) an “its” instead of a “their.”

Chuckling here.

TrekMovie is an American independent franchise news source and board, true. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s locked down to a mid twentieth century American style guide.

Plural and personal nouns for governments and corporations are fairly widely used in other English speaking countries, and are becoming (I notice) more common in US usage as well. It’s really not that different than the longstanding shift in the US to using them instead of these for inanimate objects (which still grates against my Canadian/British sensibilities).

Language evolves.

As a Canadian, I have seen some of our spelling and grammar being driven to American norms due to the pressure of Microsoft spelling and grammar checkers. A Canadian version of Word is relatively recently generally available, but the intervening impact has been high. I’ve heard that social media is also driving to convergence in both English and French.

Chiming in… I actually considered switching both of those to “it” and “which” but decided to keep them as is because they are also referring to the people at those companies. We know the folks at IDW, and both companies have people working there who are clearly Star Trek fans and have come up with ideas not just based on numbers, but on creative choices that can only be made by humans. So that’s why I didn’t change them. There is also some flexibility on such things, given the context.

“There is also some flexibility on such things, given the context.”

Exactly. The rules are not as black and white as David is making them out to be. He IS mostly correct… but it just doesn’t matter and it’s fine not to make the suggested changes.

Except that this site uses US style. If they want to start using British style, there is a lot more to change than simply pluralizing corporate names.

David, while you are mostly correct in your assertions, this is a fan website, not a professional journalism source, and you’re not paying for any of the content. So you should cut some slack. There’s no need to be pedantic.

That being said, in the spirit of pedantry…

MLA style for em-dashes is to not have spaces on either side of them. :)

Group nouns can take the plural in most English varieties. It’s not a must but it isn’t wrong either.

“IDW are” and “Hasbro are” are both correct sentences. Only the German influence on AmE has widely eliminated the plural form with group nouns as far as I know. Me being a Germany-based English teacher :-).

I’m a writer and copy editor (professionally), and in general, I don’t use the plural form with group nouns, but it was a very conscious choice in this instance as I was thinking about the people working on these products vs. the corporations. I do love these kinds of discussions, though!

Give me more of my Lower Decks and Prodigy and I’m in Trekkies heaven! 😁😁

Looking forward to To The Journey and even kicked in a little money for the cause! Can’t wait!!

JJ verse and those silly movies has died once again! I guess I’m already in heaven! 😂

Lots of great stuff to look forward to!! The creative team should explore delving into limited episode mini-series or straight-to-streaming movies…

A limited episode mini-series would be a great way to tie up/resolve Georgiou’s redemption arc and Section 31, since it seems to be the show the fewest fans are excited about. Something like five or six episodes, set it in the PIC era, involve some legacies and some new characters, and then use is as a springboard for the next actual live-action series.

Star Trek Discovery Series opened up Star Trek again and made it come to life again that it is not died that you are getting more of star trek that you would not have gotten with out it to give a new start

Fair point.

Discovery has struggled, but it’s clearly established its own audience (even if that’s not much represented among the regulars here).

It’s still not my favourite, and hasn’t held the interest of my spouse or our (now teen) kids. But that’s ok.

I’m a bit confused by your unclear wording (no offense intended), but I ***think*** you’re saying that Discovery deserves more credit than people are giving it because it relaunched Star Trek. Did I understand you correctly?

If so, I sort of agree with you. While Discovery is not what relaunched Star Trek (that would be the Kelvin films–Discovery debuted a year after Beyond hit theaters), it IS what made it widely popular again, since the Kelvin trilogy had diminishing returns. And although it’s one of the weakest of all the current shows, Discovery deserves credit for helping to breathe new life into the mythos.

I’m looking forward to exactly nothing on that list. And that really hurts. This was my favorite franchise. I even have it listed unter “interests” in my CV. But I just don’t care about any of this anymore.

Resurgance looks kind of interesting in previews and I like low story based video games. Maybe I’ll give that one a chance …

If you love Star Trek but have been disappointed with the latest incarnations, I highly recommend giving Prodigy another try. It may change your mind. And if you loved ’90s Trek, you will enjoy Gates McFadden’s podcast too! Check out season 1. Start with Michael Westmore, maybe.

I tried watching Prodigy … about half of the first half-Season but just couldn’t get into it. I somewhat enjoy Lower Decks but after three seasons with barely any real developement I’m growing tired of that one, too.

I don’t consider Podcasts by the actors really part of canon but, I might check it out. The Shuttlepod Show is also pretty great though I don’t know if Enterprise can be considered 90s Trek :-D

Oh well … maybe there’ll be a fourth Orville Season. One can hope …

If you have only watched the first 5 episodes of Prodigy then you’ve missed out on some absolute gems like “Kobayashi”, “Time Amok”, “All The World’s a Stage” and “Mindwalk”.

I must admit that I had my misgivings at the start too because it just did not “feel” or look like Star Trek to me, but I persisted and honestly it’s been the biggest surprise and has become my favourite new Star Trek of them all.

The writers intentionally started out the show in a more “alien” way, with nothing really resembling Star Trek as the character’s had never heard of Starfleet or the Federation. But they introduce more and more classic Star Trek elements during the season until it’s fully immersed in the Star Trek world by the end.

I’d definitely agree with Laurie and encourage you to try again and hopefully you have a better response to it once you experience the best of the season.

“Hardly any new developments??? Well, the main character revealed her gay lifestyle in the past season. That’s pretty big news! And Boimler, the former object of her flirtations, is showing signs that he’s heading in that direction, too. Great character development!

I don’t really care about the characters sexual orientation. The whole point of Treks philosophy has allways that it dosn’t matter who you love and people don’t really care as long as it’s consensual. So no … having a same sex relationship or bisexual character isn’t anything noteworthy. Neither in Star Trek nor in the Media Landscape as a whole.

And as a personal thing: I never watched Star Trek for the fucking

Sorry to hear that. But my enthusiasm for Trek hasn’t been any greater since the mid 90s. I’m not a huge fan of PIC S1+2 but the rest I absolutely adore.

Funny. You listed Trek under “interests” in your CV… Never had to write one but philosophically speaking, my Trek fandom IS my CV. I feel as if I had been born again when first watching Star Trek at the age of 13. I’ve added some more franchises along the way (mainly Doctor Who, Star Wars, Middle-Earth and Harry Potter), but Trek will always be front and center of my life. I’m married to the Enterprise, my oath of celebacy rests with my Starfleet files :-)

For me it’s Prodigy, SNW, Picard, and Strange New Worlds: The High Country. I still need to read Rogue Elements, but I liked the sample a lot.I can’t look forward to announcements, tbh. It feels like setting up for disappointment b/c Star Trek/Paramount has yet to prove fully (imo) that they wait long enough to announce things. Obviously they don’t when it comes to films. No-one can foresee everything and of course some projects will become delayed or not happen, and sometimes announcements are the best way to gauge interest…I guess. -.- But even in the best of circumstances, which are largely relegated to the past anyway, I lean towards not getting particularly set on things like release dates or announcements until the stars actually seem to be aligning. My life often means that, for instance, I don’t know until the day whether I’ll actually be able to go to the movie I have tickets for, or if I’ll be attending holiday celebrations, so I’m pretty used to the attitude of “if it happens, cool, if not oh well better luck next time”.

I would like to see a new animated series. It would be aimed at an adult audience and would cover different Trek time periods. One episode might cover just after TMP, for example.

I’m looking forward to seeing if any of the streaming Trek series get renewed and if any new series are announced. Neither has happened in almost a year!

According to a friend of mine at CBS, who I was texting about doing some set work, there has been a lot of movement on the Star Trek TV front, but none of it has yet been announced. She’s been cagey with details, but it sounds like we’ll be getting several announcements pretty soon. I hope so. It’s been a rough couple months and I need to go back to work.

Are you guys actually willing to put your money where your digital mouth is on a movie announcement? I’ll take that bet, let me know where I can collect?

Remember when Gus Van Sant did a shot-by-shot remake of Psycho? A possible idea for the next Trek movie could be — take it back to the beginning — a shot-by-shot remake of Trek: The Motion Picture, one last rodeo for Pine and friends. (I suppose they could go by the “Director’s Edition.”) Those LED walls could be used to keep costs down.

I’m sorry…but no. Make an original story, that’s want fans want. STID made clear making a ‘homage’ to other stories is just not the best move even with good intentions.

…ugh, I still get a bad taste in my mouth anytime STID is mentioned. Worst Trek theater experience I ever had, and I’ve seen them all in theaters.

LOL sorry Danpaine!

And what I can’t get is who in their right mind would want a shot by shot copy of TMP lol. I know that movie has it’s fans, but I can’t even get through the first 20 minutes of it. I’ve seen it three times in my life. I tried watching it again last year when they released the 4K version on First Contact day. I thought with all the new effects and enhancement, it would be a better experience for me. Nope!

And the Kelvin movies are utterly antithetical to what TMP is. TMP is Trek’s version of 2001. The Kelvin movies are Trek’s version of the MCU; loud, big and lots of spectacle. The two couldn’t be any different. If people thought Beyond drove new fans away, the short attention span of today’s audience would kill that movie dead by it’s third day of release.

Nemesis is the worst i have ever seen, period. Not even Star Trek V comes close. I was so disappointed by the movie i left the theater depressed. The cool ship fight at the end doesn’t make up for how awful it is. Data’s death was handled better than in Picard i will grudgingly admit.

Remember when Gus Van Sant did a shot-by-shot remake of Psycho?

I do. And I remember everyone hating it.

Psycho is a classic in the horror genre. Sad to say, TMP isn’t in its respective genre. In Sci-Fi, that distinction falls to Wrath of Khan, and if we’re going to be completely honest with ourselves, WOK was a “lightening in the bottle” moment. A copy would be just that. A copy. Try selling that to investors, and you’re going to get laughed out of the room.

I’m surprised there’s no mention of the Khan podcast.

I guess that the Trekmovie editors either don’t look forward to it as much OR they simply forgot. I don’t hear much talk about that project anywhere.

Yeah, I’m looking forward to that A LOT. If there is one gaping hole in Trek’s exploits, it’s audio drama. I’m green with envy looking at all those 1000+ Doctor Who audio dramas from Big Finish, having spawned a gazillion spin-off ranges. Trek needs full-cast audio dramas ASAP… Even Alien got a whole trilogy of them on Audible.

You forgot a big one. The Enterprise F appering on screen. Sure the Oddessy is a ten year old design, but A new Enterprise on screen is worth noting I’d say

I guess because it’s in the trailer we’ve technically all already seen it, maybe that’s why it was omitted.

i hope the Voy doc is honest about the show being entertaining but not really working, not true to its premise.

I thought it worked fine, but it probably could’ve honored its premise better if it could’ve been serialized like DS9, but the network was fiercely against serialized stories at the time.

The show botched a serialised arc with jonas

Dude, I had to look that character up. Sure it could’ve been better but I was fine with the outcome. You don’t seem to be a Voyager fan, which is OK obviously, but I just don’t have the same issues with the show like you and others do. I liked it because it WASN’T serialized. But yes some parts of the story arcs definitely could’ve benefited from it.

i just wanted more from a ST show after TNG and DS9 did so well and it came up short. entertaining, especially with the EMH and 7 around but disappointing in the end

I understand of course, you were disappointed by the show. And you certainly weren’t the only one. All I can say I wasn’t one of them. I loved the show from beginning to end, but yes I agree it had problems for sure, but that’s a common issue with Star Trek lol. And I also agree, TNG and DS9 were superior, hence why Voyager is my third favorite out of the three.

It was working for me. Much better than turning it into Trek’s version of NuBSG but doing A Year of Hell-style story arcs. I’m so glad they kept it episodic and optimistic TNG redux-style. But then of course, modern audiences disagree with me :-)

It avoided the truth of their situation, cared little for necessary character development and relied on the Borg after not creating their own alien nemesis like the past ST shows and Ent

They still had other enemies after the Borg like the Hirogen who stuck around through season 7.

And the problem with Voyager was that it was a show that was constantly going warp 9 in one direction (for the most part) for years on end. There’s also no seat of power like the Alpha quadrant has for an enemy to siege upon like the Federation or Starfleet. Or even just a planet. There’s nothing to really conquer the same way the Klingons, Borg, Dominion or Xindi tried to do in the Alpha quadrant. It’s just one ship in a BIG area of space.

And all that makes it really hard to have a long term enemy the way DS9 or ENT had one unless that species has basically over took the entire Delta Quadrant and could be everywhere. Not even the Borg had that once they were out of Borg space. But because of the transwarp conduits, it was easy for them to appear in different areas of the quadrant at any time.

Unless they are fighting the Empire from Star Wars, it’s just not very realistic and why we saw threats come and go as they left systems.

sure, the Hirogen worked for me

Many of us wanted more or something different from Voyager at the time, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that overall, despite unevenness, what Voyager did well, it did very, very well.

There’s a reason it’s held up well and has been, through syndicated reruns and streaming, as impactful on younger millennials and Gen Z as TOS reruns were on kids in the 70s.

Many younger people note (on Reddit and other platforms) that Voyager’s version of many of the classic Trek trope stories are so much better done that when they see them in TNG or TOS those versions seem like lower quality drafts. For them, the Voyager versions are the ones to come back to.

Time for an HD-remaster of VOY… or at least of the double-episodes. It s***** when you have to change the DVD’s to see them.

I just got the making of Star Trek First Contact. Looking forward to the making of The Wrath of Khan. I also can’t wait for the remastered TNG Blu-Rays and 4K. I saw the remastered First Contact digitally it was fantastic the disc version should be even better.

I remember reading or hearing that Nana Visitor was/is writing an in-depth book about the women of Star Trek – featuring interviews not only with actors, but women behind the scenes at all levels of production as well, from all the shows including The Original Series. I wonder what the status of that is? Does anyone know?

I’m looking forward to it too!

She’s also recording interviews on video that could (hopefully, potentially) form the basis for a documentary. I think she may still be holding out for some of the women who have not yet been willing to come forward. (For example, Marina Sirtis who has said that’s she’s already said publicly all she’s willing to.)

Laurie interviewed Nana last year. There is more than one TrekMovie article in the archive.

It was going to be published by Hero Collector, which is now gone, but I think someone else is picking it up. I really want to read it, so I hope so!

There’s never been a better time to be a Star Trek fan. I’m so grateful for the glorious abundance of Star Trek goodness available – all the shows, movies, books, comics, music, games, toys, collectibles, podcasts – and the fun of sharing it all with family and friends (old and new and still to be made.) We are a lucky fandom. LLAP.

Star Trek: Discovery Season 5

Popverse's top stories of the day

  • Marvel Studios is returning to Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con and we think we know what they're planning
  • WATCH: Cosplay Central's Championship and Costume Showcase from Florida Supercon!

The Acolyte was the anarchistic Star Wars story fans of the Jedi never wanted

The future never ends. At the center of Star Trek’s core message is the idea that things will go on, and arguably continue to improve, because the future never ends and through community, communication, and the need to explore, new heights will be reached and new frontiers discovered. It’s something to think about as the final season of Star Trek: Discovery airs, taking the franchise further into the future than ever before… but the story will not end when that series does.

Whether it’s William Shatner’s James T. Kirk, Patrick Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard, Avery Brooks’ Benjamin Sisko, or any of the subsequent commanders and captains of the many starships of Starfleet, generations of viewers have found themselves in good hands when it comes to navigating the outer limits of reality on a regular basis… and, these days, there are more opportunities than ever to transport into space for a trek of your own.

Even with 2023’s final season of Picard, there are no fewer than four ongoing Star Trek series right now — with even more on the way, and the return of the franchise to the big screen, with multiple movies in the works. There’s so much happening, in fact, that it’s easy to lose track… which is why you should keep reading and find out what to expect from Star Trek across the next few years. (Spoilers: the final frontier is getting a lot bigger.)

Upcoming Star Trek movies and TV show schedule

There’s no shortage of Star Trek in the pipeline for the next few years, but no official dates have been announced by CBS or Paramount for anything outside of Star Trek: Discovery season five coming in April. That doesn’t mean that we have no idea when some projects should be dropping, based on how far along they are in terms of production, or simply teases given by those involved.

Here’s a quick rundown of the projects that have been announced from Star Trek that exist on some form of schedule, however vague. (There are many unscheduled projects, which we’ll get to at warp speed, don’t worry.)

What Star Trek TV series are planned?

Star trek: prodigy, season two.

Star Trek

While Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 was originally announced to debut on Paramount+ in the winter of 2023, Paramount+ has nixed those plans — but the show was picked up by Netflix, with new episodes already announced for some point in 2024. (The first season was added to the platform in December 2023.)

Release Date: TBD 2024

Platform: Netflix

Star Trek: Lower Decks, season five

Star Trek

A fifth season for the animated comedy set in the period between Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Picard was announced in April 2023, but no premiere date is known. Judging by the period between order and broadcast for the fourth season, however, it’s relatively safe to assume that a new season might be ready by the end of 2024, unless the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes of 2023 threw everything entirely off schedule.

Platform: Paramount+

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, season three

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2 art

As if the second season cliffhanger wasn't enough of a clue that the popular spin-off of Discovery — which is also a prequel to the original Star Trek series from the 1960s —would return, the show's third season renewal was announced back in April 2023 . But after a second season that included a half-animated crossover episode and a musical, how can they top what they've already achieved? A clue arrived in a recent article mentioning a murder mystery episode , and we’ll see what else the show is planning to wow fans when it returns at some point in 2025.

Release Date: TBD 2025

Movies & TV Shows with No Approximate Schedule Yet

Star trek: section 31.

Star Trek: Section 31

Even before the character of Philippa Georgiou (Michelle Yeoh) left the Discovery narrative, rumors of a Section 31 spinoff starring the Oscar Award-winning actress have swirled. In mid-April 2023, it was officially announced that a Star Trek: Section 31 “special movie event” starring Yeoh had been greenlit by Paramount+ .

Yeoh, who originated the idea for a Section 31 spinoff herself, will serve as executive producer with Alex Kurtzman. Additional details from the announcement include the fact that Section 31 will be written by Craig Sweeny and directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi (director of many episodes of Discovery ). However, it remains to be seen what other familiar Trek characters may appear in the show, if any. The movie is currently in post-production, which makes a late 2024 or early 2025 release likely — and Yeoh has already said that she’d be willing to make more if this one goes over well.

Release Date: TBD

Star Trek: Starfleet Academy

Star Trek

In late March 2023, it was announced that Starfleet Academy season 1 had been ordered. Very few details have been revealed about the series, although we do have confirmation that it will be a live-action series. The announcement refers to it being “the first time in over a century” that individuals will be admitted to the Academy implied the series will be set around the same time period as Discovery seasons 3, 4 and 5 , which was later confirmed by Paramount executives .

However, we do know some of those behind the scenes who will be involved with Starfleet Academy. Serving as showrunners and executive producers will be Kurtzman and Noga Landau. Furthermore, in a Tweet sent shortly after the series order was announced, Lower Decks star Tawny Newsome revealed that she has joined the show’s writers room.

Star Trek 4

Star Trek Beyond

In April 2021, a new Star Trek movie was announced for release on June 9, 2023. It was subsequently revealed to be a fourth movie in the Kelvin Timeline. WandaVision alum Matt Shakman was attached to the project before he accepted the directorial role for the upcoming Fantastic Four MCU adaptation; he subsequently left the project, which placed it in turnaround.

Long believed to be quietly dead, sources inside Paramount have recently said that it’s still active and in development. And yet, it's not all good news - according to Variety , the fourth entry into the Chris Pine-starring Star Trek saga will be "the final chapter” in that particular series.

Platform: Theatrical

Untitled Star Trek prequel

Having wowed fans with his work on Lucasfilm’s Andor series, director Toby Haynes is reportedly developing a new Star Trek movie set decades before J.J. Abrams’ 2009 reboot of the franchise , with writer Seth Grahame-Smith onboard to write. Little is known about the project including just what timeline of Trek it’s going to take place in; initial reports suggested it was part of the Kelvin timeline — which is to say, the continuity of the 2009 reboot movies — but more recently , it was described as being part of the core timeline of the franchise. (Of course, in that it’s a prequel set before Nero changed history in that 2009 movie, it’s possible that it could be both. Time travel is confusing.)

Untitled Picard movie


The open question over what, if anything, Paramount would do to follow up on the success of the third and final season of Picard might have an answer. While Picard showrunner Terry Malalas had teased a new series called Legacy — see below — Patrick Stewart revealed in a recent interview that he’s heard of a movie script written specifically for Picard, although he hadn’t read it and couldn’t give any further details. Will this feature more of the reunited TNG cast, or is it something entirely different? And is it meant as a Paramount+ project a la Section 31, or a theatrical release? Time will tell…

Platform: TBD

Potentially Abandoned Projects

Quentin tarantino’s trek.

At one point, legendary director Quentin Tarantino was talking about directing an R-rated movie set in the Star Trek universe, with another writer working from an idea he had that was reportedly a time travel movie that would take inspiration from the original series episode ‘A Piece of the Action.’ Things progressed to a small degree with writer Mark L. Smith before Tarantino decided that he didn’t want to direct it, but the screenplay exists and Tarantino has said that he’d be willing to offer notes for any new director . We can but hope this oddity one day happens.

Star Trek: Legacy

One unannounced project remains at the forefront of Trekkie agendas everywhere: the proposed Picard semi-sequel, Star Trek: Legacy. The title was revealed by Picard season 3 showrunner Terry Matalas on Twitter in March 2023, while Picard’s wildly popular third season was being released. Matalas stated the proposed series would be set in the 25th century, following up on storylines and characters from “the Last Generation and the Next.”

While the series has yet to be officially commented upon by Paramount or CBS, fans have signed online petitions in support of the idea, and at least one Trek executive seems in favor; In interviews in support of Strange New Worlds season 2, Akiva Goldsman voiced his continued advocacy for a continuation of the vision Matalas has for the Franchise. “Let me put it this way,” Goldsman said during an interview with CinemaBlend. “I signed the petition too.”

It’s unclear whether or not the Picard movie project mentioned above is a variation on the Legacy idea, or an entirely separate project.

Is Star Trek 4 confirmed?

As we mentioned earlier, a fourth and final Star Trek movie set in the Kelvin Timeline — the alternate timeline created with J.J. Abrams’ 2009 reboot of the franchise, featuring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Karl Urban as Kirk, Spock, and Bones, respectively — is in development, although it’s unclear at what stage at time of writing. Certainly all parties involved seem to want to make it happen, so at this point, we should consider it a question of when it’ll happen.

What is the most current Star Trek?

Currently, episodes of the final season of Star Trek: Discovery are airing on Thursdays on Paramount+, running through the end of May 2024.

What’s the next Star Trek series?

At time of current writing, the second season of Star Trek: Prodigy is anticipated to be the next Star Trek show to debut, at some point on Netflix. The next all-new series to debut will be Starfleet Academy, which we can likely expect at some point in 2025.

Will there be another Star Trek with Jack Crusher?

One of the breakout stars of Picard, season 3, Ed Speleere portrays Jack Crusher, a new addition to the Star Trek universe with ties that go back generations (or at least, to the new one). After the third season fo the Patrick Stewart-starring spinoff wrapped, fans were very curious about whether we'd see Crusher again.

Unfortunately, there's no confirmed answer to this question. However, that hasn't stopped folks like Susana Polo at Polygon from speculating about Crusher's future, particularly how it could connect to the rumors of Star Trek: Legacy. Be warned before you read that speculation, though; it contains major spoilers for Picard season 3.

Space may be the final frontier, but there's no end to Popverse's love of the Star Trek universe. Hop aboard the starship Enterprise with our Star Trek watch order , explore strange new worlds with our upcoming Star Trek TV shows and movies list , seek out the new life of the franchise , and boldly go where no Star TRek film has ever gone before - with Quentin Tarantino ?

Paramount is getting the Enterprise gang back together. No, not the 1960s series turned film series cast, but rather the cast of the J.J. Abrams relaunch that debuted in 2009 and went on to star in two subsequent movies.

Paramount executive Brian Robbins and producer Abrams made the announcement at Paramount’s investor event Tuesday, although details were not revealed. No deals are in place, but Paramount hopes that returning castmembers will include Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldaña and John Cho, who have starred in three films, beginning with 2009’s Star Trek .

The announcement signals a breakthrough to relaunch Trek on the big screen. The studio has been trying to regroup the cast since at least in 2018, when negotiations with Pine and Chris Hemsworth, who had a small role in Abrams’ 2009 film, fell through . Since then, Paramount has tried to redevelop the project, with creatives such as Quentin Tarantino and Noah Hawley taking stabs at films that did not move forward. Pine also played Captain Kirk in Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) and  Star Trek Beyond (2016), the last big-screen outing.

WandaVision director Matt Shakman is directing the next  Star Trek movie, with Josh Friedman and Cameron Squires rewriting a script from Lindsey Beer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.

In recent years, Trek primarily has lived on the small screen, with numerous streaming shows on Paramount+ including Star Trek Discovery  and  Picard . Executives at Paramount’s investor day noted the company was focused on creating franchises that lived both on the Paramount+ streaming service and on the big screen, with other projects announced including a third  Sonic the Hedgehog  movie as well as a live-action TV spinoff starring Idris Elba’s Knuckles.  Filmmaker John Krasinski also revealed his  A Quiet Place Part III  will arrive in 2025.

The next Trek film is due in theaters Dec. 22, 2023. See an early logo below.

‘Star Trek' and ‘Doctor Who' Showrunners to Appear Together at Comic-Con Panel Celebrating ‘Intergalactic Friendship Day' (EXCLUSIVE)

In a show of geek unity, the executive producers and showrunners of the "Star Trek" TV universe and the "Doctor Who" Whoniverse - Alex Kurtzman and Russell T Davies, respectively - will appear in a panel together at San Diego Comic-Con. The panel, which will be held on Saturday, July 27 at the largest fan gathering in North America, will kick off celebration of the first "Intergalactic Friendship Day" on July 30, an effort by the two franchises to foster greater connection and fellowship between their fandoms. (The celebration lines up with the International Friendship Day, created in 2011 to bring together people across the planet.)

Under the banner of "Friendship is Universal," "Star Trek" and "Doctor Who" will headline a gallery experience in the Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego during Comic-Con, which will feature original costumes and props from both franchises, along with photo opportunities and friendship bracelet giveaways.

"Doctor Who" and "Star Trek" have had quite similar trajectories through pop-culture - the former launched in 1963, the latter in 1966, and have perpetuated off-and-on through to the present day with a rotating cast of actors and brand new takes on their venerable and expansive fictional universes.

The latest iteration of "Doctor Who," starring Ncuti Gatwa as the 15th Doctor is currently streaming on Disney+; in 2023, the BBC's iPlayer launched the Whoniverse, which allows UK viewers to partake of more than 800 shows connected to "Doctor Who."

Meanwhile, "Star Trek" has enjoyed the most robust expansion of the franchise in its 58-year history, with several titles running on Paramount+, including "Star Trek: Strange New Worlds," "Star Trek: Lower Decks" and the upcoming series "Star Trek: Starfleet Academy" and TV movie "Star Trek: Section 31."

" Star Trek: Discovery " has finally ended its groundbreaking run after five seasons to usher in the streaming age of Gene Roddenberry's baby, and the third outing of " Star Trek: Strange New Worlds " won't land until sometime in 2025, perhaps before the first "Star Trek" streaming film and its black-ops division arrives for " Section 31 ." 

Keeping the creative energies burning, the next high-flying "Star Trek" project fueling up for a probable release in 2026 from the iconic sci-fi fantasy franchise will be "Starfleet Academy." This young adult-aimed series set in the San Francisco begins filming soon in Canada and fan anticipation is already ramping up to find out exactly what executive producer and showrunner Alex Kurtzman has planned for us Trekkies.  

Before the bell rings, let's warp into everything we know about "Star Trek: Starfleet Academy" and its newest class of promising candidates that will someday join the Federation as part of its intrepid peacekeeping armada to reignite the spirit of intergalactic discovery. Take your seat and let's dive straight in!

Cameras for "Starfleet Academy" are due to start rolling late this summer at Pinewood Studios Toronto for a planned six-month shoot. The production is destined to showcase the most enormous set ever created for any "Star Trek" show. 

Its design will incorporate a central two-story academic atrium, an elaborate amphitheater, classrooms for the brightest astrophysics mind, a huge mess hall, and pedestrian walkway flanked by trees. After a normal 6-8 months of post-production, "Starfleet Academy" probably won't arrive on Paramount+ until 2026 sometime.

When it does release, Star Trek: Starfleet Academy will almost certainly be available to watch on Paramount+. You can also watch almost every other Star Trek show and movie on there too though, while you wait.


"Starfleet Academy" takes place mainly in San Francisco of the 32nd century at the end of a period known as The Burn, when nearly all of the galaxy's precious supply of dilithium, a material which is required for warp drives, had been rendered inert. 

In " Star Trek: Discovery" Season 3 , Michael Burnham and her crew swept in to aid in stopping the crystal crisis, heralding a new era of cosmic exploration. This end to the severe restrictions of faster-than-light space travel results in a fresh beginning for both the Federation and Starfleet.

This series will explore the academic incubator for this next generation of starship captains, commanders, pilots, navigators, science officers, and engineers in a higher education environment that will delve into themes of friendship, romance, peer pressure, rivalries and enlightenment as they strive to make the grade under the watchful guidance of their professors and instructors.

"My thinking was, if we set "Starfleet Academy" in the halcyon days of the Federation where everything was fine, it's not going to speak to what kids are going through right now," Kurtzman explained in a May 30, 2024 interview with the LA Times .

"It'll be a nice fantasy, but it's not really going to be authentic. What'll be authentic is to set it in the timeline where this is the first class back after over 100 years, and they are coming into a world that is only beginning to recover from a cataclysm — which was the Burn, as established on "Star Trek: Discovery," where the Federation was greatly diminished. So they’re the first who’ll inherit, who’ll re-inherit, the task of exploration as a primary goal, because there just wasn’t room for that during the Burn — everybody was playing defense. It's an incredibly optimistic show, an incredibly fun show; it's a very funny show, and it's a very emotional show. I think these kids, in different ways, are going to represent what a lot of kids are feeling now.”


Starfleet Academy follows the same 10-episode format of other Paramount+ Star Trek series. Beyond that, we don't know much at this point as we're still very early in the show's development.


Since pre-production is still underway on "Starfleet Academy" there are numerous casting announcements popping up from time to time. 

The most prominent of those picks is word that the Academy Award-winning actress Holly Hunter ("The Piano") will portray the "captain and chancellor" of "Starfleet Academy" who oversees the institution's faculty and class of bright-eyed hopefuls.

Recently, news broke that distinguished actor Paul Giamatti ("John Adams," "The Illusionist") has been signed in the ongoing role of the premiere season's big baddie, described as "a man with an ominous past connected to one of our cadets."

And just this week, Paramount+ announced that Kerrice Brooks ("My Old Ass"), Bella Shepard ("Wolf Pack") and George Hawkins ("Tell Me Everything") have joined the cast as newly recruited "Starfleet Academy" cadets.

A descriptive mission statement for

At this time, since filming won't start until Aug. 2024, there are no teasers or trailers. We'll keep you updated when the first trailer drops.


Longtime "Star Trek" ringmaster Alex Kurtzman and Noga Landau ("Nancy Drew") will act as executive producers and share showrunning duties for "Starfleet Academy." CBS Studios is in charge of production in collaboration with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment, while Paramount Global Content Distribution maintains the series' distribution.

Additional executive producers include Gaia Violo, Aaron Baiers, Olatunde Osunsanmi, Jenny Lumet, Rod Roddenberry, Trevor Roth, Frank Siracusa, and John Weber. Kurtzman is also signed on to direct the first two episodes, and Jonathan Frakes is rumored to direct as well. Gaia Violo wrote the series premiere episode.

2023 has been an eventful year for the entertainment industry – and the world's best streaming services have delivered plenty of top-tier TV shows for us to enjoy.

To celebrate the year that was, we've rounded up 34 of the most highly-rated and/or popular series of the past 12 months. Below, you'll find individual sections for each of the eight biggest streamers, including our top picks of the last year. There's also 'honorary mentions' at the end of each section for shows that we considered including but, for whatever reason, weren't as successful or acclaimed as the chosen few.

So, whether they're a fan favorite returning for their latest season or a brand-new series that stole our hearts, here are the best streaming TV shows of 2023 (read our best movies of 2023 guide, too, if you're looking for something of a film-based variety instead). 

Best Apple TV Plus shows of 2023

Foundation season 2.

After an up-and-down first season on Apple 's streaming service, Foundation improved in its sophomore year to deliver a stunning follow-up that was as dramatic, action-packed, and mind-boggling as any sci-fi show we can remember.

In our Foundation season 2 review, we said it "rights every wrong from the Apple TV Plus show’s first season in cosmically dazzling fashion". Anyone who sat down and watched its latest 10-episode run agreed with us, too, with season 2 landing a rare 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Read our Foundation season 2 ending explained article to see what it sets up about the highly-anticipated Foundation season 3 .

Monarch: Legacy of Monsters

The first MonsterVerse TV show, which is set between 2017's Godzilla and 2019's Godzilla: King of the Monsters , drew quizzical looks from fans upon its announcement, especially with it debuting on Apple TV Plus and not Max (the super streamer owned by Warner Bros. Discovery, which distributes the MonsterVerse movies).

And yet, here we are, including Monarch: Legacy of Monsters in our 2023 best shows guide. With its engrossing human character-driven plot and expansion of (and nods to) the MonsterVerse, Monarch proves there's a place for kaiju-starring TV shows alongside their theatrical brethren.

With some of the brains behind the supremely successful Ted Lasso (namely, Bill Lawrence and Brett Goldstein) involved behind-the-scenes, we should've expected Shrinking to be a tragi-comedy worth streaming.

Its clever twist on the patient-therapist dynamic, laugh-out-loud moments, and brilliant performances from its cast – most notably legendary actor Harrison Ford, whose grouchy persona seemed tailormade for his specific role – made Shrinking must-see TV. With season 2 on the way, now's as good a time as any to catch up on one of the best Apple TV Plus shows (and there have been many recently) of modern times.

Apple TV Plus has become the best platform for sci-fi aficionados, with Foundation and For All Mankind paving the way for it to dominate this particular genre space. Yet it was Silo , which debuted in May, that confirmed Apple's current positioning as the best sci-fi TV show developer, with its dystopia-led drama and believable cast of characters helping it to become one of the most acclaimed shows of 2023.

Of course, it was also helped by a captivating mystery that we unravlled alongside Silo 's uninformed individuals, which was solved in a barnstorming finale that sets the scene for a grander second season, although it's a long way from making its Apple TV Plus debut, lead actor Rebecca Ferguson exclusively told TechRadar .

Ted Lasso season 3

After countless awards, humorous anecdotes, surprisingly emotional moments, and more than a dollop of actual soccer, 2023 was the year we bid a fond farewell to everyone's favorite mustachioed sports coach.

Ted Lasso season 3 brought the curtain down on Apple's critically acclaimed show, and there wasn't a dry eye in the house when it ended in poignantly heart-warming fashion. In our Ted Lasso season 3 review , we called it "a title-winning triumph for the best Apple TV Plus show" and, while the chances of a fourth season and/or spin-off project are as slim as Jamie or Roy's chances of ever getting back together with Keeley, we're OK with how it drew to a close. The best shows know when to go out with a bang, and this one certainly did.

Best Disney Plus shows of 2023

Loki season 2.

In a year that Marvel will want to forget in a hurry for many reasons, two MCU projects – Loki season 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 3 – were beacons of light in a pretty glum year for the Disney subsidiary.

It's the former that ended 2023 on something of a high for Marvel, too, with Tom Hiddleston's trickster god (and his TVA allies) delivering a second season full of dramatic twists and turns, plus plenty of funny moments. In our Loki season 2 review , we called it "a spellbinding and subversively clever sequel to Marvel’s best Disney Plus show". Its moving ending – read our Loki season 2 ending explained article for more – also did more for the studio's burgeoning multiverse-centric story than any other Marvel Phase 4 and Marvel Phase 5 movie or series to date. A sophomore season burdened with glorious purpose that fulfilled its destiny.

The Mandalorian season 3

OK, it wasn't as narratively strong as its predecessors, but The Mandalorian season 3 was still a huge hit for Disney Plus upon release in early 2023.

Indeed, there were entries that felt scattershot in their storytelling approach, while it wasn't until the season's latter half that Din Djarin and Grogu's latest adventure really kicked into gear. Still, it was watched by millions around the globe every week, meaning one of the best Disney Plus shows was popular among Disney Plus users. The Mandalorian season 4 hasn't been greenlit yet but, with showrunner Jon Favreau confirming the scripts have already been written, we'd be amazed if Disney doesn't renew its most successful Star Wars show.

Star Wars: Ahsoka

Many fans consider this live-action series to be Star Wars: Rebels season 5 in all but name, but that's doing a disservice to Star Wars: Ahsoka .

The Rosario Dawson-fronted production has many ties to Lucasfilm's aforementioned animated TV show, but it's nonetheless a compelling watch, even if its narrative pacing is on the ponderous side. It was riveting to see Rebels ' main players appear in live-action form – even better, you didn't have to be a Jedi Master to understand Star Wars: Ahsoka 's story or eclectic cast when it eventually debuted .

That said, it'll be more fascinating to see what role they'll play moving forward, especially with Ahsoka setting up plot threads to come in a Star Wars crossover movie event that'll see the gang team up with Din (and others) to likely thwart Grand Admiral Thrawn's return to that galaxy far, far away. Read our Star Wars: Ahsoka ending explained piece to get the lowdown on what we think will happen.

Best Hulu shows of 2023

With superhero fatigue becoming a very real thing for many viewers, this superpower-centric Hulu series was a breath of fresh air when it arrived in August.

Based on Kang Full's South Korean webtoon of the same name, Moving quickly drew widespread acclaim for its wholly original take on the superhero genre. Indeed, just seven days after it premiered, Moving was the most-watched Disney Plus original series internationally and on Hulu stateside. Of the 11 awards it's been nominated for, it's won eight, too, proving its heroics on the overstuffed superhero landscape. A worthy entry in our best Hulu shows list, we think you'll agree (once you watch it, anyway).

Only Murders in the Building season 3

Like The Mandalorian , Only Murders in the Building 's third season suffered a slight dip in the critical acclaim stakes, but it was still surprising and fun-filled enough to keep audiences entertained.

With a new comedy-laced whodunit at the forefront of its story, Only Murders 3 continued to make the most of the natural chemistry between its intrepid trio of Steve Martin, Selena Gomez, and Martin Short – all of whom excelled once more this season. Throw in scene-stealing supporting performances from the likes of Meryl Streep and Paul Rudd, and it's pretty clear why the show's latest outing had to be included on this list.

The Bear season 2

One of the best shows of the past few years ever, let alone on just Hulu, The Bear season 2 continued the absolutely terrific show's hot-streak with another delectable 10-episode run.

We could wax lyrical about the series' second season for many paragraphs, but our words simply wouldn't do justice to how good it really is. It's just an absolute titan of the TV landscape right now, with an all-star cast at the top of their game (not to mention their characters that you'll love or love to hate), a primary storyline and multiple subplots that are indisputably engrossing, and enough food porn for your eyes to feast on for days on end. Binge watch this show immediately and then get the lowdown on The Bear season 3 .

Best Max shows of 2023

Our flag means death season 2.

Things haven't been great for Taika Waititi on the movie front recently – Thor: Love and Thunder and Next Goal Wins weren't good, in our view. But at least this queer romance-based pirate show, which Waititi co-developed for Max (and co-stars in), continues to deliver laughs and heartfelt moments aplenty.

Our Flag Means Death season 2 proved the Rhys Darby-fronted series' first entry wasn't a fluke from a critical acclaim perspective. Indeed, it doubled down on the high sea hijinks of its predecessor with aplomb, all but confirming it's a pirate's life for us if we ever fancy a career change. Now we just need to get ourselves a ship, a motley crew, enough empty chests to fill our bountiful amounts of treasure in, and a few cannons to protect our seafaring vessel.

Scavengers Reign

It's a rare occurrence to see an animated series earn a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating – there's only one other anime-style offering that did likewise this year, which we'll get to – but Scavengers Reign is more than deserving of its perfect critical score.

A mind-boggling, horror-tinged, and dramatically explosive sci-fi series, Scavengers Reign shows what happens when you let creators' vivid imaginations run free. You get a top-tier, wholly original property whose narrative is as sharp and tight as its gorgeous (and occasionally grotesque) visuals. Expect it to join our best Max shows guide (if it hasn't already) imminently.

Succession season 4

One of many terrific shows that ended in 2023, the multi-award-winning Succession went out with an almighty, drama-filled bang with its fourth and final season.

It was a pity to see the Roy family's jaw-dropping interfamilial melodrama brought to a close this year, but what sets a great show apart from good ones is they know when it's time to call it quits. With Succession season 4, creator Jesse Armstrong knew it was time to supply an explosive but fitting end to the battle for control of Waystar Royco. Suffice it to say, Armstrong and Succession 's supremely talented cast gave it the necessary send-off it deserved. 

The Last of Us

It doesn't feel like 11 months (at the time of writing) have passed since The Last of Us season 1 premiered on Max, but here we are. HBO's live-action adaptation of Naughty Dog's multi-award-winning and beloved videogame series had the creative team and talented cast to be a success, but there were murmurings that it wouldn't be able to live up to its gaming namesake.

Pleasingly, The Last of Us ' first outing proved those naysayers wrong in spectacular fashion. A series that expanded upon the story, lore, and wider universe of its videogame cousin – we'll never get over that stunningly poignant third episode – while also bringing the dystopian action game franchise's most iconic moments to life. Little wonder, then, that our review of The Last of Us season 1 said it was "an undeniably faithful adaptation of developer Naughty Dog’s era-defining PlayStation title". Find out what we know about The Last of Us season 2 while you're here.

Best Netflix shows of 2023

The first of two unbelievably good shows Steven Yeun starred in this year, Beef is a prime cut comedy-drama that deserves a lot more attention and acclaim than it's received.

A commanding series where esteemed comedian and Yeun's co-star Ali Wong shines as bright as her contemporary, Beef is a masterfully constructed (it was written by Lee Sung-jin and directed by Jake Schreier) microcosmic insight into two strangers who become locked in a comedically tragic spiral of mutually assured destruction. A show as zany and thematically horrifying as any we've seen in a long time, which will make you reconsider the depths of depravity humanity will sink to get one over a supposed foe. An absolute must inclusion in our best Netflix shows guide.

Blue Eye Samurai

We teased another 100% rated animated show in our Scavengers Reign entry, and here it is. Blue Eye Samurai season 1 is, to be frank, a stupendous piece of television. It's gratuitously violent, visually dazzling, 18th-century-set Kill Bill -style thrill ride of a TV series that exudes a swagger and badassery we've not felt from an animated Netflix show since 2021's Arcane . Honestly, we can't overstate how good this visionary show is.

If you don't own a Netflix subscription, you can check out its gorgeous first episode on YouTube (for free!) right now. Once you've watched it, we'd be amazed if you don't immediately stump up the money to watch the rest of its nine-episode first season run, too. Netflix has already confirmed Blue Eye Samurai season 2 as well, so get on season 1 now before you forget to do so.

Heartstopper season 2

If you're in the market for a more heart-warming and less full-on TV show to stream on Netflix, your best bet is season 2 of Heartstopper .

The coming-of-age rom-com show's sophomore entry built on its debut season's superb showing with an equally earnest follow-up that's as humorous as it is emotional. It's beautifully scripted and acted, isn't afraid to place its queer romances front and center, and tackles big themes that few other series have done with reams of authenticity. A joy-filled romp that, with season 3 on the way, isn't going to end any time soon. Watch these six feel-good comedies while we wait for Heartstopper season 2's sequel to arrive.

It might have royally messed up its adaptation of Cowboy Bebop , one of the best anime ever made, but Netflix wasn't going to make the same mistake with its live-action remake of One Piece .

A genuinely fantastic take on Eiichiro Oda's iconic manga series, One Piece season 1 was everything Cowboy Bebop wasn't – authentic to the source material, meticulous production design that brought every aspect of the Straw Hats' world to life, and an accomplished cast who embodied everything great about Luffy and company that made us fall in love with them upon the manga's initial release 25 years ago. Find out everything we know so far about One Piece season 2 or, if you weren't as big a fan of Netflix's adaptation, watch one of these five other swashbuckling pirate shows instead .

Sex Education season 4

Another show we bid farewell to in 2023, Sex Education graduated from Netflix with a fourth season that, in our estimations, was as bittersweet as it was satisfying.

Season 4 wasn't as strong as what came before, admittedly, but that doesn't mean it was a terrible installment – far from it, in fact, with Sex Education 's final act landing a 91% critical score on Rotten Tomatoes. A sweet, empathetic, and gender/sexual orientation inclusive series that shone bright during its four-year run. We're sad to see it go, but hey, at least Ncuti Gatwa – one of its biggest stars – will continue to charm us as the 15th iteration of the world-famous Time Lord in his first Doctor Who season very soon (go and watch the 2023 Christmas special right now if you haven't!).

The Fall of the House of Usher

Mike Flanagan's last TV original for Netflix – he penned a first-look deal with rivals Prime Video in late 2022 – is arguably his best work to date.

Taking its cues from Edgar Allen Poe's short story namesake, The Fall of the House of Usher is essentially a gothic horror-tinged version of Succession . If you loved the latter and you adore terror-fuelled stories with buckets of gore, this series should be added to your watchlist ASAP. Few Netflix shows have been as stunning as this one (including the aforementioned quintet) in so many areas – indeed, we couldn't find a single fault with Flanagan's last hurrah on the streaming giant, and we're sure you'll agree once you've seen The Fall of the House of Usher in its entirety.

The Night Agent

There'll be some raised eyebrows at The Night Agent season 1's inclusion on this list, especially when you consider some of the shows, which sit in the honorary mentions section below this entry, are arguably more worthy of a spot.

True, it isn't one of the most highly-rated Netflix series this year, but The Night Agent proved to be an absolute powerhouse in early 2023. It accrued an eye-watering 168.7 million hours viewed in its first week alone, becoming Netflix's new TV show darling in the process . By the year's end, 812 million hours had been sunk into its first season, too, proving it wasn't just one of the most-watched Netflix series in early 2023 , but one of the most popular shows of the year, period. Little wonder, then, that The Night Agent season 2 is on the way .

Best Paramount Plus shows of 2023

Star trek: lower decks season 4.

In a section top-heavy with Star Trek projects – they're all worthy of their place – Lower Decks season 4 continues the series' ascent from rank outsider to one of the best animated shows of the modern era.

There's plenty to like about it, too. With endearing and multidimensional characters, storylines augmented with laugh out loud humor (a rarity in the Star Trek universe), universe-spanning capers, and its delectable, whimsical cartoon animation style, Lower Decks ' fourth outing is the show's tightest and most refined entry yet. Beam it onto your TV screen ASAP.

Star Trek: Picard season 3

A show that really took its time to find its feet, Star Trek: Picard goes out with a sci-fi-laden bang with its third and final season.

The serial's final installment owes much of its success to its nostalgia-centric elements, with Jean-Luc Picard reunited with his former command crew on the USS Enterprise. But Picard season 3 isn't solely about the nostalgia porn – indeed, it's an entry that boldly goes where other Star Trek shows have feared to tread, with unexpected and complex plot twists, a greater exploration of the relationships between Picard and his crew, and a fitting finale that gave closure to The Next Generation fans as much as Picard ones. After a poor second season, its successor finally gave Picard the right to join our best Paramount Plus shows list.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 2

The third and final Star Trek entry in our Paramount Plus section, Strange New Worlds season 2 doesn't just cement it as a fantastic Trekkie series, it also confirms the franchise should focus all of its efforts on making top-tier TV shows instead of underwhelming big-budget flicks.

A show that recaptures the classic sci-fi adventure vibe of those early Trek days, Strange New Worlds feels like a series out of time, but it's all the better for it. Its cast is terrific, the writing cohesive and nostalgically experimental, and the creativity of its elaborate locations extraordinary. Oh, and true 1990s flashback style, it gave us a brilliant musical-based episode that needs to be seen to be believed. Good fun all round.

General audiences haven't taken to it as much as critics have, but Showtime's The Curse is a skin-crawlingly dark comedy- thriller that fans of Nathan Fielder, the Safdie brothers, and Emma Stone won't want to miss.

A satirical take on the reality TV boom of the 21st century, The Curse is, like Beef , excruciatingly enjoyable to watch. You'll regularly want to cut away from its discomforting and cringe-inducing moments but, due to how engrossing its unlikeable characters and unsettling plot are, you won't be reaching for the remote. A pin-sharp, genre-bending series that continues to put Fielder and Benny Safdie on the map, and reconfirms our view that Stone is one of this generation's most talented performers.

Best Peacock shows of 2023

An absurd series that draws parallels between spirituality and technology, Mrs Davis is a wild ride that keeps its entertainment value high amid its unusual premise.

Led by Betty Gilpin's sharp-witted titular character – one who uses her faith to combat artificial intelligence (AI) – Mrs Davis is at times surreal, others surprisingly funny and action-packed, and occasionally all three lumped together. It's a wildly imaginative show that, like a few of its contemporaries on this list, are more deserving of your attention. Read our Mrs Davis review, in which we say it likens AI to magic , if you need further convincing.

Like The Last of Us , this crime-comedy Peacock show came out at the start of 2023, meaning it might have fallen off (or never crossed) your radar. Poker Face , though, is definitely one of the best exclusive offerings available on the NBCUniversal-owned streamer, and with good reason.

Created by whodunit obsessive Rian Johnson and starring underrated actor Natasha Lyonne, Poker Face is a delightful revisionist take on the murder mystery formula. Each episode, viewers find out who the culprit is within the first 10 minutes, before Lyonne's reluctant amateur sleuth Charlie Cale – who is on the run in a season-spanning narrative for, well, spoiler-filled reasons – spends the next 40 minutes determining who said criminal is. In our Poker Face review , we called it a "seminal moment for Peacock" and "one of the most surprising (and best!) shows of 2023", and it's certainly befitting of that acclaim and much more.

Twisted Metal

A show that, like The Night Agent , was far more popular among casual TV fans than critics, Twisted Metal became the most-streamed Peacock show of all time upon its July 2023 debut.

A live-action, modernized take on the Sony -owned videogame series of the same name, the Anthony Mackie-starring post-apocalyptic action-comedy is fast-paced, fun, and fabulously over-the-top. It won't win any big prizes on the 2024 awards circuit, but that won't concern its cast and crew. The fact that audiences adore its bold and color-popping aesthetic, cheesy one-liners and plot, eclectic characters, and relentless violence is enough for them. With a second season on the way, you can expect Twisted Metal to turbocharge its TV dominance of Peacock, too.

Best Prime Video shows of 2023

In a year where the likes of Marvel and DC struggled to deliver many stellar superhero-centric projects, Prime Video took the lead in showing them how it's done. The first of two electrifying genre series to arrive on the streamer this year, Gen V – a college-based spin-off of The Boys – was as brutal, heartfelt, shocking, and hilariously innovative as its hit parent show. 

That shouldn't come as a surprise, considering some of its creative team are also involved in The Boys , but Gen V nonetheless stood on its own two feet and proved it could hold its own against its more well-known compatriot. Read our Gen V season 1 review to learn more about how great it is and then check out our Gen V season 1 ending explained article to see how it sets up The Boys season 4 .

I'm a Virgo

Few Amazon TV Originals were as, well, wholly original as this absurdist coming-of-age dramady from multitalented artist Boots Riley, the mastermind behind 2018's superb Sorry to Bother You .

A wickedly sharp show that's unafraid to go batcrap crazy, I'm a Virgo 's towering imagination, relatable characters, and satirized storytelling made it a dead cert for inclusion in our best Prime Video shows article. It's unashamed whimsical, offbeat charm, and dynamic performances elevate it above many other Prime Video series, and proves other Riley-developed projects are certainly worth keeping an eye on over the next few years.

Invincible season 2 part 1

One of the most highly-rated Prime Video shows ever, Invincible made its long overdue return in late 2023, albeit in a manner that was as brisk as it was stunningly good.

Invincible season 2 part 1 – its second half arrives in early 2024 – picked up where its predecessor left off, with a deliciously jaw-dropping mix of comedy, superhero drama, action, horror, and creative flair. Little wonder, then, we said it gave Loki season 2 and Gen V season 1 a run for their money as the best superhero show of 2023. Check out our spoiler-filled Invincible season 2 episode 4 ending explained piece to learn what's coming up in Invincible season 2 part 2 , according to its co-showrunner and comics co-creator.

Reacher season 2

It took until the final month of the year for everyone's favorite man mountain vigilante to make his own Prime Video return, but Reacher season 2 's first few episodes made it a worthwhile wait.

Rather than seek inspiration from the second novel in Lee Child's action-crime series of the same name, the second installment in the adored Alan Ritchson-starring show opted to adapt the 11th book – and the results speak for themselves. Reacher 's second season, which digs into the titular character's history, is a pleasingly creative change in direction to its forebear; an entry that allows season 2's supporting cast to shine as brightly as its leading man. There's only one crime Reacher season 2 is guilty of committing , and that's being one of the year's best Prime Video shows.

The Wheel of Time season 2

With The Rings of Power season 2 not expected to air until 2024, Amazon's other popular high fantasy series – The Wheel of Time – made its grand return to the streaming giant to fill that particular genre-shaped hole in our lives.

The Wheel of Time season 2 wasn't as epic as we expected it to be , but it still had enough magical gumption, narrative surprises, and fantastical character evolution for us to enjoy. With "a good chunk" of The Wheel of Time season 3 already in the filming can , we're hoping we won't have to wait another two years for the hit series to weave its way back onto our screens again, either. That said, if you send a band of Trollocs to our doors, we'll quickly change our stance to a more patient one.

Star Trek: Prodigy Season 3 - Everything We Know

Kate mulgrew urges fans to watch star trek: prodigy season 2, hopes for more seasons, star trek just remade a popular voyager time travel episode.

  • Star Trek: Prodigy was canceled by Paramount+ but found new life on Netflix, where both seasons are now streaming.
  • The animated show introduced a new generation to Star Trek and its characters, earning critical acclaim on Netflix.
  • While a third season is uncertain, the creators are open to continuing the series or exploring a Star Trek animated movie.

Star Trek: Prodigy was unexpectedly canceled by Paramount+, but found new life on Netflix. On Friday, June 23, 2023, Paramount+ announced the cancelation of four shows: Star Trek: Prodigy, Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies, The Game , and Queen of the Universe . A Paramount+ spokesman said those series, "have completed their runs on Paramount + and will not be returning to the service. We want to extend our thanks to our tremendously talented cast and crew and our producing partners for their passionate work and dedication on these programs, and we wish them all the best on their future endeavors.”

Created by Kevin and Dan Hageman, Star Trek: Prodigy was the first Star Trek animated show aimed at younger viewers, and it can take immense pride in introducing a new generation to Star Trek and its lofty ideals. Prodigy featured the return of Kate Mulgrew as the iconic Admiral Kathryn Janeway , as well as a Hologram of Janeway. Prodigy's talented voice cast includes Brett Gray, Ella Purnell, Rylee Alazraqui, and Angus Imrie, along with Dee Bradley Baker, Jason Mantzoukas, Jimmi Simpson, Jameela Jamil, and John Noble. Prodigy was a joint venture of Paramount+/CBS Studios and Nickelodeon Studios.

Star Trek: Prodigy seasons 1 and 2 are now streaming on Netflix.

Netflix has the option to order Star Trek: Prodigy season 3. Here's what we know about the young Starfleet crew of the USS Protostar's return.

Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 Is Now Streaming On Netflix

Prodigy season 2 sends the protostar kids on another twisty, high-stakes adventure..

After its sudden cancellation by Paramount+, Star Trek: Prodigy eventually found a new streaming home on Netflix. All 20 episodes of both seasons are available to stream, and there is no indication that they will disappear anytime soon. With its massive, global subscriber count, Netflix brought in new viewers for Star Trek: Prodigy season 1, and Prodigy season 2 landed in the Netflix top 10 in various countries around the world. Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 currently sits at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes (with 6 reviews), raising the question of whether the show will get a third season.

Following the adventures of Dal R'El (Brett Gray) and his misfit crew on the USS Protostar, Star Trek: Prodigy has something for everyone. The charming young characters and their adventures appeal to younger audiences, while the many connections and shout-outs to previous Star Trek series appeal to longtime fans. Not only does Prodigy serve as a good entry point to the Star Trek franchise, but it also looks beautiful and tells a compelling story on its own. Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 picks up where the first left off, with the Protostar kids accompanying Admiral Janeway on a dangerous mission to rescue Captain Chakotay (Robert Beltran).

In a surprising and welcome return as The Traveler, Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton) plays a major role in Star Trek: Prodigy season 2, helping the Protostar kids fix the timeline and restore the proper future.

Why Star Trek: Prodigy Was Canceled By Paramount Plus

Paramount+ canceled several shows and removed them from the platform..

Star Trek: Prodigy was canceled as part of Paramount+'s merger with Showtime in June 2023. To add insult to injury, Prodigy and the other canceled series were removed from Paramount+ entirely. Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 still completed its post-production in December 2023, but the new episodes did not stream on Paramount+. In spite of being a joint production with Nickelodeon, Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 did not air on Nickelodeon either. CBS Studios shopped Star Trek: Prodigy to other streaming services and found a new home for both seasons on Netflix.

On Twitter, Star Trek: Prodigy 's executive producers Kevin and Dan Hageman confirmed the news:

Executive producer Aaron J. Waltke also Tweeted to clarify that Star Trek: Prodigy will complete production of season 2:

According to Variety, the decision to cancel Star Trek: Prodigy was "data-driven, though Paramount did not share any specific data that highlighted why these shows are being canceled and removed." The move, however, reflects the deleterious changes across the streaming industry, as services like Max, Netflix, Disney+, and Hulu have deleted existing shows and content as cost-cutting measures and for tax write-offs. Months ago, Paramount+ purged other titles from its service such as Coyote, The Real World, and The Twilight Zone.

How Star Trek: Prodigy Landed On Netflix

Passionate fan support likely helped prodigy find a new home at netflix..

Star Trek: Prodigy found a home on Netflix thanks in large part to the show's fans, who launched a GoFundMe campaign that led to an airplane flying over the Netflix offices. Prodigy then became the first Star Trek series not streamed on Paramount+ since the television franchise was resurrected in 2017 with Star Trek: Discovery . ( Star Trek: Discovery came to an end on Paramount+ in May 2024.) In many ways, Netflix was the perfect home for Star Trek: Prodigy. Not only is Netflix the industry leading streaming service, but it also produces many great animated projects that do well on the platform.

Regarding Netflix's decision to pick up Star Trek: Prodigy, Kate Mulgrew said the following:

“I've always held that the Star Trek fan base is among the strongest and most intelligent in the world. They have shown their collective passion, and we’re happy to be able to celebrate Prodigy once again."

When the release date for Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 was announced, Mulgrew took to social media to urge fans to watch the new season. On July 1st, Netflix released all 20 episodes of Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 on the same day, a first for any Star Trek show, and it remains to be seen how this strategy will affect the viewing numbers. With its stunning visuals and compelling storyline, Star Trek : Prodigy is not only excellent Star Trek , but also great television. Hopefully, new fans will discover the show on Netflix and realize that Dal and his friends have many more stories to tell.

With Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 premiering on Netflix on July 1st, Kate Mulgrew urges fans to watch so that Netflix orders more seasons.

Will There Be A Star Trek: Prodigy Season 3?

The door remains open for prodigy season 3 or a prodigy film..

Although Star Trek: Prodigy season 2 has received widespread praise from fans and critics, the show's future remains unknown. There is a very real possibility that Netflix could decide they want more Prodigy, which could come in the form of another season or Star Trek's first animated movie . Star Trek: Prodigy creators Kevin and Dan Hageman have expressed their interest in continuing the series and suggested they have ideas for more adventures with the young heroes of the USS Protostar.

Whether or not Star Trek: Prodigy gets season 3, season 2 completes the saga that began with the series premiere.

Although Star Trek: Prodigy's season 2 finale leaves the door open for more adventures with Dal R'El and his friends, it also serves as a nice send-off, leaving the viewer to imagine the characters' futures. Still, Prodigy introduced some wonderful new characters to the Trek universe, and it would be a shame for their stories to be over. Time will tell whether audiences will ever see more Star Trek: Prodigy, but for now, both seasons will remain available to stream on Netflix.
