Star Trek: Strange New World is the newest hit show for the franchise.
Star Trek: Strange New Worlds has been everything that Trek, Paramount+, and ViacomCBS have been hoping for from the franchise. The series is witty, well-written, smart, kind, and above all else, classic Trek. The franchise has been hoping for a show to hit all the right notes since CBS All-Access and later Star Trek: Discovery first launched.
Now, CBS All-Access has long been buried and replaced by Paramount+, another streaming service not making money. Discovery and likewise Picard have been canceled due to a combination of low ratings and rising costs, and with Paramount+ cutting back spending, every show is now on the chopping block to some degree.
The goal is to make the streaming service profitable, and that may mean axing popular shows if they cost too much. So while it may have seemed unlikely that Paramount+ would cancel Strange New Worlds, you could never truly rule it out. That is, until today.
It has been announced that Strange New Worlds, which the second season for isn’t far off from premiering, will start production on a third season rather soon. This guarantees that Strange New Worlds should exist in some form at least through 2024 if things go according to plan.
When is season 2 of Star Trek: Strange New World debuting on Paramount+?
The announcement that Strange New Worlds is getting a new season isn’t surprising. While it was possible that a show as expensive as Star Trek: Strange New Worlds could’ve gotten cut, it wasn’t very likely. The announcement of the show’s pending third season wasn’t the only thing that was announced today either with regards to Strange New World’s future.
The show will see its second season release in just a matter of months, with June 15 being the release date for the show in the United States (and probably internationally).
