Set ten years before the events of Star Trek: The Original Series, the spin-off also stars Doug Jones, Shazad Latif, Anthony Rapp, Mary Wiseman, Jason Isaacs, Wilson Cruz, Anson Mount, David Ajala, Rachael Ancheril, Blu del Barrio and Tig Notaro.

"Star Trek: Discovery is a perennial favourite on the service, near and dear to the hearts of legions of Star Trek fans as well as all of us here at Paramount+," chief programming officer at Paramount Streaming Tanya Giles said (via Deadline).

"The series and its incredible cast and creatives ushered in a new era for Star Trek when it debuted over six years ago, embracing the future of streaming with serialised storytelling, bringing to life deep and complex characters that honour Gene Roddenberry's legacy of representing diversity and inclusion, and pushing the envelope with award-winning world-building.

"This final season will see our beloved crew take on a new adventure and we can't wait to celebrate the series' impact on the franchise leading up to its final season early next year."

Elsewhere in the Star Trek universe, Michelle Yeoh's Discovery spin-off seems stuck in development hell.

Gyles recently confirmed the hotly-anticipated series focusing on Yeoh's character Philippa Georgiou isn't exactly close to release.

Having recently appeared in The Witcher prequel Blood Origin, the Everything Everywhere All At Once protagonist will next be seen as Madame Morrible in the upcoming Wicked movie and will be part of a star-studded cast for Kenneth Branagh's next Poirot adaptation A Haunting in Venice.

Star Trek: Discovery seasons 1-4 are now available on Paramount+.
