It was already known on Star Trek: Picard and Star Trek: Prodigy. But now the other current “Star Trek” series (and even an upcoming one) have been given the green light for further seasons.
While the cinematic future of “Star Trek” has stalled (but a new film is now planned for the end of 2023), the cult sci-fi franchise is currently experiencing a real new boom in the series area – which is continuing. After “Star Trek: Discovery”, “Star Trek: Picard” and the animated series “Star Trek: Lower Decks” and “Star Trek: Prodigy”, the “Discovery” spin-off “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds” starts around The adventures of Kirk’s predecessor, Captain Pike (Anson Mount) and his crew of the Enterprise, will be added this year to another “Trek” series.
