Star Trek: Discovery Reportedly Lands Fourth Season Renewal

Though CBS All Access has not yet announced an official premiere date for Star Trek: Discovery Season 3, the popular sci-fi series has reportedly been renewed for a fourth season.

Production reports indicate active development has begun on Season 4, though there has been no official confirmation from CBS at this time. Active development could entail hiring writers and designers to begin pre-production work on the television series, months before the start of principal photography.

Discovery Season 2 ended just as the crew of the USS Discovery was accidentally transported 320 years into the future. The characters found themselves in an unfamiliar universe where Starfleet and the United Federation of Planets no longer appeared to figure prominently in the cosmos of the 32nd century.
