Make sure the phasers are on YES. The fifth season of Star Trek: Discovery has been given the go-light.
It wasn’t the simplest series to watch if you live in the UK, but it was still worth it (you can thank licensing awkwardness for that). After a long search, Star Trek: Discovery has found a permanent home at Paramount+, where it will join the likes of Picard, Strange New Worlds, The Lower Decks, and Prodigy.
It’s now a matter of patiently awaiting the next installment. Is there a release date for the next episode of Star Trek: Discovery? And what are the chances that this will happen? Detailed instructions are included.
Discovery Season 5: Release Date
As part of a monumental statement in January 2022 concerning the trajectory of the Star Trek Universe, the fifth season of Star Trek: Discovery was officially given the go-ahead to be produced.
In conjunction with the news, it was disclosed that the third season of Picard will be the final one and that Strange New Worlds has been given a renewal for a second season.
Regrettably, beyond this, there has been no indication as to when it may return to our televisions in the future. Even the prior series did not have a rough regular release slot, so we have nothing to go on in that regard.
The first season was made available in September 2017, the second season was made available in January 2019, the third season was made available in October 2020, and the fourth season was made available in November 2021. See? There is no true association.
On the other hand, given that the show has a custom of releasing a new season annually, we might have some optimism that the fifth season will arrive on our screens in the second half of the year 2022.
When we have further information, we will be sure to keep you informed.
Discovery Season 5 Cast
Even though an official cast list has not been made public as of yet, Sonequa Martin-Green has already stated that she will be reprising her role as Captain Michael Burnham in the upcoming film.
Regarding the remaining members of the cast, we anticipate that all of your favorites will be back. These include Doug Jones as the Starfleet Kelpien Saru, Anthony Rapp as Paul Stamets, Mary Wiseman as Sylvia Tilly, David Ajala as Cleveland “Book” Booker, and Wilson Cruz as Hugh Culber and Tig Notaro as Jett Reno.
Then, there is always the possibility that some familiar faces from the news will also attend.
Discovery Season 5 Plot
Now that the fourth season has come to a close, we are in a position to begin speculating about what lies beyond the next star system. Of course, the idea for the fifth season will remain strictly under wraps.
Sonequa Martin-Green was quoted as saying, “I can state with certainty that it is going to be invigorating. It’s going to be a very stimulating experience. And I believe that it will be gorgeous – in the most literal meaning of the term.”
She also hinted that there will be a more significant attachment going our way in terms of the Booker/Burnham relationship, adding that the two will “always be bound together in some manner.” This gave the impression that there will be a stronger attachment heading our way.
Consider us interested to say the least!
“I believe that what they say in that final time that they share together in [the finale] – that Kwejian quote – is incredibly important. “That pretty about sums it up,” was her response.
The “Kwejian phrase” (referring to the language spoken on Book’s homeworld) was “Kwakoni Yiquan,” which, as we already knew, can be translated as “We’ve parted a hundred times, may we part to rejoin a hundred more.”
Which is incredibly heartwarming, but it also doesn’t bode well for an easy path for them to get to the endgame.
During the fourth season, the plot of the show centered on the appearance of a strange new life form that would come to be known as Species 10-C, as well as the evil plot that Ruon Tarka (Shawn Doyle) had devised to put the safety of the entire universe in jeopardy.
In the episode that capped off the fourth season, viewers witnessed the crew get the situation with Species 10-C under control and Earth and Ni’Var avoid being destroyed by the Dark Matter Anomaly, also known as the DMA. As a direct consequence of this, the planets that make up the United Federation of Planets welcomed Earth back.
If Earth is readmitted to the Federation, does it suggest that there will be more action on terrestrial planets in season five?
Olatunde Osunsanmi, the director of the show, has indicated that the next fifth season will actually combine new and old components from the legendary franchise as a way to capture the essence of the first series. Trekkers rejoice!
“The cosmos is a vast region in which tremendous events have the potential to take place. “All I can tell is that – it’s not time travel – but we go back into the past in order to get further into the future,” he said in an interview with ScreenRant. Season five is shaping up to be… all I can say is that,” he said.
There is an older version of Star Trek that has been made available. And this new version that Alex has made, but the previous version still has a lot of features that we really like, despite the fact that Alex has created this new version.
“So it’s about pulling from there… not necessarily stories or characters but more themes, and process, and how those stories are told and applying it to what we do in the future. And that includes [Burnham’s] character and things she does as a Captain.”
Discovery Season 5 Trailer
Unfortunately, there is not yet a trailer because there is no guaranteed release date. However, once we have a date, we anticipate the teaser to be released approximately one month before the premiere.
