Star Trek: Discovery holds a special place in the history of Paramount+ and the Star Trek franchise. When it launched in 2017, it became the first commissioned original series for the then-upstart streamer CBS All Access. This groundbreaking series introduced audiences to a diverse cast of characters and pushed the boundaries of storytelling within the Star Trek universe. It paved the way for the expansion of the franchise on Paramount+, which now boasts a total of five current series.
With the conclusion of Picard’s final season on Paramount+, Star Trek: Discovery will be the last CBS All Access series to wrap up its run on the streaming platform. As fans bid farewell to beloved characters and storylines, they can anticipate an epic conclusion that will leave a lasting impact on the Star Trek universe.
While Star Trek: Discovery may be reaching its conclusion, the Star Trek franchise shows no signs of slowing down. Star Trek: Lower Decks and Strange New Worlds are currently in production. Although the animated series Star Trek: Prodigy has been cancelled, season two is in production, and there is hope that the series will find a new home.
