Star Trek: Discovery is done, and its finale should wrap the show up nicely.
Star Trek: Discovery will finish its up-and-down run in 2024, as the show will wrap up things with its fifth and final season. It’s the third show that Paramount+ has pulled the plug on in 2023, but unlike Prodigy, there’s no saving Discovery. Netflix isn’t coming in at the 11th hour to pick up a sixth season.
It’s going to finish but it’s at least going to finish with a strong ending. According to franchise head Alex Kurtzman, Discovery is going to conclude things in a satisfying way.
Talking to the fans at the New York Comic Con (and via TrekMovie.com), Kurtzman assured fans that Discovery’s ending will be one they can enjoy, saying;
"We have finished it. It will be airing early next year. It’s an incredibly satisfying ending to a show that is so near and dear to my heart. Sonequa Martin-Green gave the performance of her life. I think you guys are going to love it."
Star Trek: Discoverey’s ending will have a lot to live up to
Discovery was a wild ride for a lot of fans, and it’s now seen as one of the worst offerings Star Trek has ever put out there. It was so bad that the showrunners had to change the era in which the show took place because the decisions they were making were just making fans angrier and angrier.
Now, they’ll try to wrap things up in a concise and meaningful way, but how that happens is anyone’s guess. With all the retconning this show has done, it wouldn’t surprise us, nor should it surprise you, if they end up finishing the show in a way that angers fans.
