Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is not ending anytime soon.

Is there another season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds on Paramount+?

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds concluded its 10-episode season 2 in August 2023, and in addition to its previously announced season 3, the show is also confirmed to return for a season 4 on Paramount+.

The announcement of the show’s fourth-season renewal was made on April 12, 2024, with co-showrunners Akiva Goldsman and Henry Alonso Myers and executive producer Alex Kurtzman confirming the series’ season 4 run in a statement:

“On behalf of the cast and crew of Strange New Worlds we are thrilled and grateful to continue our voyages together. We can’t wait for you to join us and the crew of the Enterprise on another season of exploration and adventure.”

The news of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 4 renewal came on the same date it was announced that Star Trek: Lower Decks will conclude later this fall with its fifth and final season. Series creator Mike McMahan and executive producer Alex Kurtzman confirm the news in a touching letter to fans:

“To the fans,

We wanted to let you know that this fall will be the fifth and final season of Star Trek: Lower Decks. While five seasons of any series these days seems like a miracle, it’s no exaggeration to say that every second we’ve spent making this show has been a dream come true. Our incredible cast, crew and artists have given you everything they have because they love the characters they play, they love the world we’ve built, and more than anything we all love love love Star Trek. We’re excited for the world to see our hilarious fifth season which we’re working on right now, and the good news is that all previous episodes will remain on Paramount+ so there is still so much to look forward to as we celebrate the Cerritos crew with a big send-off.

Finally, thank you for always being so creative and joyful, for filling convention halls and chanting
LOWER DECKS!” We remain hopeful that even beyond Season 5, Mariner, Boimler, Tendi, Rutherford and the whole Cerritos crew will live on with new adventures.

LLAP
Mike McMahan and Alex Kurtzman”

How many episodes does Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 4 have?

There is no information available yet on the number of episodes for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 4. But because the show’s first three seasons consists 10 episodes each, the fourth season will likely have the same number of episodes.

What will Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 4 be about?

Unfortunately, since Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 4 is still far off (season 3 hasn’t even aired yet!), there’s no official word on the specific plotlines it will explore.

Who are the cast of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 4?

It’s too early to say for certain who the exact cast will be for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 4. Since season 3 hasn’t even aired yet, the showrunners are likely still focusing on scripts and filming for that season. Confirmations on cast returning for future seasons often occur closer to production for those seasons.

However, based on the main cast of previous seasons, we can expect to see familiar faces:

  • The Bridge Crew: Anson Mount (Captain Pike), Ethan Peck (Spock), Rebecca Romijn (Number One)
  • Other Key Roles: Jess Bush (Nurse Chapel), Christina Chong (La’An Noonien-Singh), Celia Rose Gooding (Nyota Uhura), Melissa Navia (Erica Ortegas), Babs Olusanmokun (Dr. M’Benga)

There’s also a possibility of new cast members joining the crew for season 4, but announcements about that would likely come much later.

What is the release date for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 4?

There is no official release date yet for Star Trek: Strange New Worlds season 4. As mentioned above, the show is currently filming for season 3, which is set to premiere sometime in 2025. With that said, season 4 will likely premiere much later, possibly in 2026 or even beyond.
