The announcements keep coming with the Star Trek Day, and perhaps the most exciting surprise of all—we won’t have to wait long for more Star Trek: Discovery.
In an announcement during the Star Trek Day celebration it was revealed that we will be back with Michael Burnham and her friends by mid-November this year:
#StarTrekDiscovery returns November 18, 2021 on @ParamountPlus. Yes, that means for the first time in over 20 years, there will be two #StarTrek shows airing AT THE SAME TIME! #StarTrekDay pic.twitter.com/AJEyItwg05

As Paramount is excited to point out, with the first season of Star Trek: Prodigy set to premiere in October, this means that there will be two Star Trek shows airing simultaneously—which has not occurred since Deep Space Nine and Voyager were both on the air in 1999.
Star Trek: Discovery has already released their first teaser trailer for season four, with a description centered around “a threat unlike any they’ve ever encountered.” To be fair, this is pretty much par for the course on the Discovery, which already had to fling itself nine-hundred years into the future in order to save all sentient life, and then work to bring Starfleet back from the dead after an event known as “The Burn.” We already know this crew is more than up to the task, even if they razz each other a bunch on their way.
Star Trek: Discovery season four will premiere on November 18th on Paramount+.
