Star Trek: Discovery renewed for fourth season – with filming to begin next month
Star Trek Discovery has officially been renewed for a fourth season – with filming to begin very soon.
The news was announced in a video which was posted on the CBS All Access YouTube channel, which also revealed that production will begin on November 2, which is only a few weeks away.
Many members of the sci-fi show’s cast appeared in the clip, including Sonequa Martin-Green and Doug Jones, as well as co-showrunners Michelle Paradise and Alex Kurtzman.
‘Oh my goodness, I am so excited to be back on set,’ Sonequa, who plays Michael Burnham, exclaimed. ‘It’s going to be so great to see everybody and really love on each other.
‘I’m so excited to be giving you a season four, and to watch season three. That’s what I’m really excited about.’
Doug, who plays Commander Saru, added: ‘I’m looking forward to the one thing I always look most forward to when we get to come back for another season, and that is to be reunited with my family again, the Trek family, the Discovery family.
‘To be able to at least be in the same room again, even if we can’t hug each other right away, I don’t know how it’s all going to work but I can’t wait.’
It comes just as the third season of the show recently begun premiering on Netflix in the UK, with new episodes available to watch every week.
The new series begins with Michael, Saru and the rest of the USS Discovery crew blasted 930 years into the future.
They later discover that the galaxy has been hit by a catastrophic event simply known as ‘The Burn’ and The Federation is no more.
It is not yet known what the fourth season is expected to focus on, but we can only imagine that it’s bound to be epic, if the recent episodes are anything to go by.
Star Trek: Discovery season three is available to stream on Netflix, with new episodes premiering weekly.
