Bold new space, and an enemy not seen in a long time - all have one thing in common, Michael Burnham. First Officer to Captain Georgia Phillipa serving aboard the USS Shenzhou, she investigates a strange beacon on an away mission. Triggering alarms, she summons its torchbearer, accidentally starting a series of events no one saw coming. The War with the Klingons has begun, and the starfleet ship is destroyed. Later, its up to USS Discovery to pick up the pieces or perish with Starfleet.
CBS All Access announced today that Star Trek: Discovery has been picked up for a fourth season. The good news comes just one day after the sci-fi drama's Season 3 premiere, which has already been garnering plenty of positive reviews.
The big-budget production has become a solid addition to the streaming service's lineup after a somewhat rocky start. First announced in 2015, it took two years for the series to make its much-anticipated debut in late 2017 due to multiple delays as well as a showrunner change during that time. Now 30 episodes in, the series has found its groove as it eyes the now-certain 50-episode milestone which it will hit before the end of Season 4.
Production on Season 4 will be kicking off in early November, with a premiere later in 2021.
