Barring any more unexpected scheduling changes, like with Star Trek: Lower Decks and Star Trek: Discovery, Paramount Plus, the streaming service for ViacomCBS, announced the Star Trek Spring 2022 premiere dates. The streaming service also announced additional 10-episode-long season pickup orders across the service’s Star Trek Universe series.
Get to the replicator and order a prune juice, or some mud slop, or even some PESTO, and buckle in because Paramount Plus just revealed its entire spring slate!
Star Trek: Prodigy
As many Trekkies may know, Star Trek: Prodigy returned this month on Thursday, January 6, 2022. The remaining four episodes of Star Trek‘s first series for a younger audience will continue to stream weekly on Thursdays, with episode 10 available to stream on Thursday, February 3, 2022.
Excitingly, the studio also confirmed the second half of the season will be 10 episodes long and will be available on Paramount Plus later in 2022.
However, Prodigy is just the beginning of a 25-week, 29-episode run of non-stop Star Trek that will run into July.
Star Trek: Discovery
According to the official announcement, Star Trek: Discovery‘s Season 4 will return from its holiday hiatus with six new episodes on Thursday, February 10, 2022, to end on Thursday, March 17, 2022.
Paramount has also renewed Discovery‘s Zora and her crew for a fifth season. However, no formal Season 5 date was announced today.
We do now, however, that Season Five will be 10 episodes, bringing the series in line with other Star Trek Universe shows.
Star Trek: Picard
The second season of Star Trek: Picard will premiere on Thursday, March 3, 2022, and drop weekly for a 10-episode run that will overlap with the final three weeks of Discovery.
Star Trek: Picard is currently in production on the third season, which will likely debut in 2023. However, the set has recently run into production delays due to over 60 members of the cast and crew testing positive for COVID-19.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is based on the years that Captain Christopher Pike (Anson Mount) was in charge of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and is set to premiere on Paramount Plus on Thursday, May 5, 2022.
In addition to Captain Pike, the series will feature fan-favorite characters like Science Officer Spock (Ethan Peck) and Number One (Rebecca Romjin) and introduce new classic Trek characters to Enterprise‘s bridge.
And we couldn’t be more excited. Thank you to the fans for making this happen and for your continued patience. XOXOX pic.twitter.com/a8EK4Wnzq9
