Star Trek: Strange New Worlds renewed for a fourth season


Star Trek: Strange New Worlds is still in production for the third season of the successful series, and we won't see that season until at some point next year. But that hasn't stopped Paramount from newing the series for a fourth season. This doesn't come as a surprise, though, as Strange New Worlds has been getting early renewals since its inception, and now, this will give the writing team and producers plenty of time to create more unique stories which we likely won't see until 2027.

With the cancellation of both Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Lower Decks after five seasons, it's comforting to know we'll still have Strange New Worlds airing new episodes. Along with that, viewers can tune into Star Trek: Prodigy which is set to launch its second season on Netflix sometime this year.

When Star Trek: Strange New Worlds wrapped its second season, Captain Pike (Anson Mount) and his crew had encountered the deadly Gorn again. The first time they'd battled these aliens, Hemmer, the chief engineer, sacrificed himself upon revealing the Gorn had laid eggs in his body. He couldn't risk the baby Gorns getting loose aboard the ship. When season two ended, another Starfleet member was in jeopardy, Captain Batel had also been infected with the Gorn, but Captain Pike wasn't willing to give up on her without a fight.

The Gorn appear to be Strange New Worlds' Borg—deadly and just as nearly invincible. So it's safe to assume we'll continue to see them in future episodes. With this renewal of the series, I can only imagine what the writers will cook up for the Enterprise crew. Whatever it is, though, as long as it's as good as the past two seasons, Strange New Worlds will undoubtedly continue its journey for the forseeable future.
