Star Trek: Discovery, the popular series that revived the franchise’s television legacy in 2017, will conclude with its fifth season. The new season will be released in early 2024, and while principal filming is almost completed, more filming will be done for the final season. The show’s focus on diversity and inclusivity, which was started by the creator of the original Star Trek series in 1966, Gene Roddenberry, continued with Discovery, as Sonequa Martin-Green became the first Black woman to captain a Star Trek ship. The show’s LGBTQ+ representation was also praised and very important to many fans. The series was the flagship for the current golden age of Star Trek with series like Picard, Lower Decks, Prodigy, and more. Executive producers/directors Alex Kurtzman and Michelle Paradise said, “If just one person sees themselves, or their future possibilities, in a new way because of Discovery, then we think we’ve done Gene Roddenberry very proud.” The fifth season will feature David Ajala, Doug Jones, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Wilson Cruz and Blu Del Barrio, along with Martin-Green, as they embark on a galactic adventure to find an ancient, hidden power.
