‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ Renewed for Season 2 Ahead of Series Debut

New seasons of two Star Trek programs were ordered by Paramount+ on Tuesday.

Star Trek: Discovery has been renewed for a fifth season by Paramount+, while the planned spinoff Strange New Worlds has been renewed for a second season before the first season premieres.

In addition, the streamer revealed the debut dates for Discovery, Strange New Worlds, and Picard season two.

Discovery’s fourth season will return from its winter hiatus on Thursday, Feb. 10, with fresh episodes. Picard will premiere on Thursday, March 3, followed by Strange New Worlds on Thursday, May 5.

From early February until the summer, the scheduling plan will keep new live-action Trek episodes airing on Thursday nights.

On the animated front, Star Trek: Lower Decks will return this summer for its third season of ten episodes, with the fourth season already confirmed. The first season of Star Trek: Prodigy is presently running on Thursday nights.

Anson Mount plays Captain Christopher Pike, who oversees the USS Enterprise in the years preceding Captain Kirk. The show is advertised as a throwback to the original Star Trek series’ traditional planet-of-the-week space exploration formula. Rebecca Romijn plays Number One, while Ethan Peck plays Science Officer Spock.
