For the fourth season, we’ve got good news. On October 16, 2020, an official statement was made confirming the show’s renewal for season 4.

The production team began filming the fourth season in November 2020, ensuring the security of the cast and crew due to this Coronavirus pandemic. This also means that the precautionary measures may cause distress, which may be why a recent release date has not yet been declared. Since season 3 landed in October 2020 and filming season 4 is scheduled to wrap up in June 2021, we can expect star Trek:’ Discovery’ season 4 to release sometime in late 2021 or early 2022.


Sonequa Martin-Green portrays Michael Burnham, a science specialist on the USS Discovery. Doug Jones features from the show as Saru, while Anthony Rapp portrays Paul Stamets. Other cast members on the show are Mary Wiseman (Sylvia Tilly) and Wilson Cruz (Hugh Culber). They all will be returning to reprise their roles in the fourth season.

One of the other returning cast members, we have Blu del Barrio (Adira Tal), Ian Alexander (Gray Tal), and David Cronenberg (Kovich). Tig Notaro, that plays Jett Reno, will also be returning for season 4, although she has chosen to limit her on-screen time to avoid traveling for filming. This helps to minimize the risk to her health.


Star Trek: Discovery season 4 will likely observe the United Federation of Planets resurgent again following a fresh supply of dilithium has been found and mined. Now the mystery of what caused The Burn has been solved, the U.S.S. Discovery became the beacon of trust, delivering dilithium to Federation member worlds and giving warp traveling back to the galaxy. On the other hand, the Emerald Chain could remain a threat regardless of the passing of the leader, Osyraa. Fans also can expect some type of new menace for the crew of Discovery to confront.

Additionally, Michael Burnham is currently the Captain of Discovery however whether or not this is going to be a permanent change or if Captain Saru will regain control is another matter Star Trek: Discovery season 4 will need to reply. Star Trek: Discovery season 4 will also continue to deal with the state of the Federation and whether Ni’Var as well as Earth will rejoin the marriage of worlds. Meanwhile, Alex Kurtzman has said that all future seasons of Star Trek: Discovery will continue to be put in the 32nd century so as to continue exploring the new final frontier the series has established.
