It’s a good time to be a Star Trek fan, but it’s also a busy time to be a Star Trek fan. With the Star Trek TV universe continuing to expand on Paramount+, it can be difficult to keep track of which Trek shows are coming and when. Here are the upcoming Star Trek TV show release dates you should have on your calendar, including some just announced season renewals…
Star Trek: Prodigy Season 1 Return Date
Premiere date: currently airing
In October 2021, Paramount+ launched Star Trek: Prodigy, a CG-animated series developed in partnership with Nickelodeon Animation Studios that “follow[s] 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.” It is currently in the source of the first half of its 10-episode Season 1A, with the finale airing on Thursday, February 3rd. Season 1B will come “later in 2022.”
Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 Return Date
Premiere date: Thursday, February 10th

Star Trek: Picard Season 2 Release Date
Premiere date: Thursday March 3rd
Star Trek: Picard is traveling through time in Season 2. As we learned in the trailer dropped on Star Trek Day, Q has f-ed things up yet again, traveling back in time to turn the world into “a totalitarian nightmare.” Picard, and the rest of the La Sirena crew (including Seven of Nine!) must jump back in time themselves to fix what Q has intentionally broken. Star Trek: Picard Season 2 will hit Paramount+ in March 2022.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Release Date
Premiere date: Thursday, May 5th
Main production on the first season of this much-anticipated Trek series that follows Captain Pike, Number One, and Spock wrapped up in July, and we’ll finally see the first episodes in May! The show has been renewed for a second season ahead of its first season premiere.
Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 3 Release Date
Premiere date: Summer 2022
Star Trek: Lower Decks will return sometime this summer. We’ll keep this article updated with more specific information when we get it. In the meantime, can I recommend reading our article Star Trek: Lower Decks Got Good When It Stopped Trying to Be Rick & Morty?
Star Trek: Picard Season 3 Release Date
Premiere date prediction: Late 2022, Early 2023
We don’t yet have a release date for the third season of Patrick Stewart’s Star Trek, but it is currently in production (or, you know, hopefully), so the wait between Season 2 and 3 will likely much shorter than the one between Season 1 and 2.
Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 Announced
Woo! Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed! There’s something special about watching a TV show for which another season is already guaranteed. This is now the case for Star Trek: Discovery Season 4, which we already know will be getting more stories in Season 5.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Season 2 Announced
You know a media company has a lot of faith in a new series when it gets a Season 2 renewal before it’s even premiered. This is the case with Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, which hopefully means Paramount has liked what it has seen of its first season.
Star Trek: Lower Decks Season 4 Announced
Star Trek: Lower Decks will be back for a Season 4! The fourth season will consist of 10 episodes, and does not yet have a release date.
