DISCOVERY Season 5 To Premiere At SXSW In March Ahead Of Paramount+ Debut In April

Fans who attend the SXSW Film & TV Festival in March will be treated to the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery‘s fifth and final season. In the meantime, check out the latest sneak peek.

The fifth and final season of Star Trek: Discovery is set to debut on Paramount+ in April, but those who attend the SXSW Film & TV Festival in March will be treated to the season premiere early. The festival runs from March 8-16 and is hosted in Austin, Texas.

Season 5 will mark the final adventure for Captain Burnham and the crew of the U.S.S. Discovery. Paramount previously revealed the synopsis for the upcoming season, teasing a mystery for the crew “that will send them on an epic adventure across the galaxy to find an ancient power whose very existence has been deliberately hidden for centuries. But there are others on the hunt as well… dangerous foes who are desperate to claim the prize for themselves and will stop at nothing to get it.”

There have been multiple teasers for Star Trek: Discovery Season 5 released over the past couple of months. The latest exclusive clip debuted at CCXP last month. The action-packed clip sees Captain Michael Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Cleveland “Book” Booker (David Ajala) come face to face with a dangerous creature that unexpectedly possesses the ability to cloak.

A previous sneak peek shared at San Diego Comic-Con 2023 dropped us in the middle of a face-off between Captain Burnham (Sonequa Martin-Green) and Season 5’s two new villains Moll (Eve Harlow) and L’ak (Elias Toufexis). In perhaps one of the more absurd moments in Star Trek history, Burnham is blown out of the starship and into space, only to have a spacesuit materialize around her as she hops aboard an enemy ship while it launches into warp speed.

Star Trek: Discovery debuted in 2017 and was the first Star Trek series since Enterprise concluded in 2005. It was also the first Star Trek series to debut on the Paramount+ streaming service. Each of the four seasons has received generally favorable reviews from critics, with seasons three and four among the highest-rated.

Season 5 stars Sonequa Martin-Green (Captain Michael Burnham), Doug Jones (Saru), Anthony Rapp (Paul Stamets), Mary Wiseman (Sylvia Tilly), Wilson Cruz (Dr. Hugh Culber), David Ajala (Cleveland “Book” Booker), Blu del Barrio (Adira) and Callum Keith Rennie (Rayner). Season 5 also features recurring guest stars’ Elias Toufexis (L’ak) and Eve Harlow (Moll).

While Star Trek: Discovery is coming to an end, there’s still plenty more Star Trek on the way. The animated series Star Trek: Prodigy, which was canceled and removed from Paramount+, is set to return for its second season on Netflix later this year. Also on the horizon is Season 5 of Star Trek: Lower Decks and Season 3 of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds., and/or the user who contributed this post, may earn commissions or revenue through clicks or purchases made through any third-party links contained within the content above.
