Both Martin-Green and Jones shared their excitement to get back to work on the series.

CBS All Access has extended the voyage of Star Trek: Discovery into a fourth year one day after the premiere of its third season.

The announcement was made by the cast and crew of Star Trek: Discovery Season 3 in an awesome video.

Sonequa Martin-Green stars as Michael Burnham, a female science specialist on the Discovery, leading a cast that includes Doug Jones, Shazad Latif, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, and Wilson Cruz. The streaming service has confirmed that its flagship Star Trek series has been renewed for a fourth season. A prequel to the unique Star Trek sequence, the drama follows the crew of the USS Discovery of the interstellar authorities often known as the United Federation of Planets (UFP).

CBS All Access is now tasting success with four other Star Trek series, namely Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Star Trek: Picard, Star Trek: Short Treks, and Star Trek: Lower Decks (an adult animated series released this year). The Trek family, the Discovery family.

By the time season 4 premieres, CBS All Access will have already re-branded itself as Paramount+. Lots left to tell - and Kurtzman also mentioned that Trek shows have a "long history of going for seven seasons minimum". New shows are reportedly planned all the way through 2027.

Debuting in 2017, Star Trek: Discovery has also inspired a number of spinoffs on CBS All Access, including short film collection Star Trek: Short Treks and the upcoming Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, starring Discovery alums Anson Mount (Pike), Ethan Peck (Spock) and Rebecca Romijn (Number One). Why don't you put them to a pandemic watch listing and proceed past the stars with all the Starfleet team this weekend?
