The third season of Star Trek: Discovery got underway back in the fall of 2020 and it was a strong season for me as the show moved forward into the 32nd century and began to look at new things in a way that the franchise hasn’t for the longest time as it has been beholden to the TNG era far too much or looking backward to the TOS era.
We got the fourth season renewal news just after the premiere of the third season, with it naturally being on Paramount+ when it hits, and now as part of a big even yesterday, we have the trailer for the fourth season and the confirmation of a late 2021 debut for the series.
The cast includes Sonequa Martin-Green as Rainsford, Doug Jones as Saru, Anthony Rapp as Stamets, James Frain as Sarek, Terry Serpico as Anderson, Maulik Pancholy as Nambue, Sam Vartholomeos as Connor, Michelle Yeoh as Georgiou, Shazad Latif as Kol, Chris Obi as T’Kuvma and Mary Chieffo as L’Rell.
Plot concept: After following Commander Burnham into the wormhole in the second season finale, season three of STAR TREK: DISCOVERY finds the U.S.S. Discovery crew landing into an unknown future far from the home they once knew. Now living in a time filled with uncertainty, the U.S.S. Discovery crew, along with the help of some new friends, must work together to restore hope to the Federation.
