CBS Renews STAR TREK: DISCOVERY for Fourth Season

The third season of Star Trek: Discovery only premiered a couple of days ago in the US, but CBS has quickly moved to renew the show for a fourth season.

CBS All Access has announced that a fourth year of Discovery has been given the green light by the on-demand streaming service. Not just that, but CBS revealed that filming for this next season will commence on November 2.

While we’ll obviously have to see how things play out in Discovery’s third season first and foremost, Doug Jones has moved to show his excitement for the news of this renewal.

As Jones – who plays Saru in the show – enthused, “I am looking forward to the one thing that I always look most forward to when we get to come back for another season of Star Trek: Discovery. And that is to be reunited with my family again. The Trek family, the Discovery family. To be able to at least be in the same room again, even if we can’t hug each other right away. I don’t know how it’s all gonna work, but I can’t wait.”

Interesting, by the time that this fourth season actually premieres, CBS All Access will have undergone its rebrand to Paramount+.

In addition to more Star Trek: Discovery, CBS All Access/Paramount+ will also be getting a new season of Star Trek: Picard – and there is reportedly another Star Trek show or two in the works, with tentative plans in place through until 2027.

Here in the UK, Star Trek: Discovery is housed on Netflix and Star Trek: Picard can be found on Amazon Prime Video.
